Our journey to the Holyland begins at the port of Haifa, passing by the cities of Netanya, Herzliya and Tel Aviv, as well as the legendary Jaffa orange groves towards the biblical city of Jerusalem. Discover the wonders of this historical city on foot with your guide by stepping through the Jaffa Gate and into the world of the past. Tread through the bustle and hustle of the bazaar and around the quaint narrow cobbled streets, which will lead you to the church of the Holy Sepulchre and Golgotha. Following Jesus footsteps, we will walk Via Dolorosa leading us to the renowned Wailing Wall. Our tour continues with a stop for a panoramic view of the Temple Mount, the Dome of the Rock and Al Aksa Mosques. Our next visit is to the Garden of Gesthemane on the footsteps of the Mount of Olives, were we will visit the church of All Nations.
In Bethlehem, after our lunch at a local restaurant, we will visit the Church of the Nativity and the Grotto, built over Jesus birthplace.
To round up this special day a visit to the Diamond Factory is scheduled if time permits.
