Jerusalem, a city which is now home to 900,000 people is the centre of religion for Christians, Jews and Muslims. Your day will start with a tour of the remarkable Old City, a unique world heritage site divided into four quarters. First stop is the Jewish quarter and a visit to the Byzantine Cardo. This main street dates back to Roman and Byzantine periods, and is steeped in history. Just a stones throw away lies the Western Wall which surrounds the Temple Mount, the holiest site for Jews. It is here that hundreds of worshippers come each day to pray and is a source of inspiration and spiritual guidance for millions. Weaving through the narrow Via Dolorosa, the path where Jesus walked on the way to his crucifixion, we'll arrive at the Church of the Sepulchre. It was here that Jesus was said to have been crucified and later buried and resurrected. Stepping inside the church is for many a moving and spiritual experience. It includes the stone where the body of Jesus was placed and rooms where it is believed he was prepared for burial. In the final part of the morning we'll walk through the Muslim quarter, experiencing its colourful markets and bustling atmosphere.
Part two of our Jerusalem and Bethlehem Day Tour takes us to where it all began. Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus is nowadays a city home to 25,000 people and is located in the West Bank. First stop is at Shepherd's Field. It was here that shepherds “kept watch over their flock” and an angel announced the birth of Jesus. Entering the city, we'll head to the Church of the Nativity, the site where Jesus was born, and today a UNESCO world heritage site.
