Jerusalem is a focal point for three of the world’s main religions - Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and today you will have the chance to explore this ancient city.
You will continue your tour to Bethlehem (from Hebrew: "the home of the bread") - the small town near Jerusalem, which was mentioned in the Holy Bible as "the home of King David". The Church of Nativity now stands on this spot; this is one of the most important sites for Christians. Following lunch in Bethlehem you will leave for the city of Jerusalem.
A walking tour will take you through the Christian quarter along the last five stations of the Via Dolorosa including the Church of the Holy Sepulchre which is built on the sites of Calvary and Golgotha where Christ was crucified, entombed and rose from the dead. Here you will have the unique opportunity of lighting candles from the Holy Flame. Your tour continues to the exotic Jewish quarter where you will visit the Western Wall - the holiest site in Judaism.
