Celebrate Christmas with our Christmas in Nazareth, Jerusalem, and Bethlehem 2 day tour. Spend Christmas Eve and Day visiting many of the important religious sites that are at the center of this holiday. Your trip will also include classic Israeli highlights such as the Dead Sea, Akko, and Caesarea. This tour is the best way to celebrate Christmas and experience all the must-sees in Israel at the same time.
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 Akko, the city listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wander through its bustling markets and see the impressive Crusader ruins. 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. This site offers unrivaled panoramic views of the Galilee. Return to Jerusalem for a free evening where you can enjoy an unforgettable Midnight Mass at the iconic Church of the Holy Sepulchre or just take in the festive atmosphere.
Wake up in the golden city of Jerusalem on Christmas Day and start your full day of touring by visiting the major historic sites in the Old City, including Via Dolorosa, the Western Wall, and Church of the Sepulchre. Next, soak up the festive Christmas Spirit in the place where it all started; Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus. Visit the Church of the Nativity and Shepherds’ Field. End your trip on a relaxing note with a float in the therapeutic waters of the Dead Sea, the lowest place on Earth, before it is time to return to your starting point.
