Celebrate Christmas with our Christmas in Nazareth, Jerusalem, and Bethlehem 2 Day Tour. Spend Christmas Eve visiting many of the important religious sites that are at the center of this holiday. Your trip will also include visits to Caesarea and the Crusader stronghold of Akko, two cities with fascinating history and architecture. 

You will start your tour traveling north along the Mediterranean coastline towards Caesarea, the ancient Herodian port city, for a tour of the National Park. The journey then continues to the Crusader stronghold at Akko, where you will hear stories from a fascinating period of history right where it happened. The next stop is Nazareth, in the heart of the Galilee, where Jesus grew up and spent the early years of his ministry. Here you will explore the Church of the Annunciation, the site of Joseph’s workshop, and the Old City. Continue your exploration with a visit to Mount Precipice (time permitting), where according to legend, an angry mob threatened to throw Jesus off the cliff.
