Jerusalem Highlights

Spend three nights in Jerusalem, where a guided walking tour of Jerusalem’s Old Town takes you to the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed the night before his arrest; the Jewish Quarter and Western Wall, the most sacred place in Judaism; and the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre, where Christians mark the crucifixion and burial of Jesus. You’ll also walk the famous Via Dolorosa, the last path of Jesus.

Visit Nazareth, the cradle of Christianity. Here, you’ll visit the Church of the Annunciation, where Archangel Gabriel told Mary she would conceive and give birth to Jesus. From Nazareth, travel to Cana of Galilee, here you will spend two nights, where Jesus turned water into wine. Also travel to Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus delivered his Sermon on the Mount. In Bethlehem, visit one of Christianity’s holiest places, the Church of the Nativity, situated on the site where Jesus was born.

History comes to life on your visits to Caesarea, where you’ll marvel at the remains of this city built in the 1st century BC; the 12th-century Crusader Fortress; Megiddo, an important site in antiquity and the site predicted for the Battle of Armageddon; and Bet She’an, one of the world’s best-preserved Roman cities.
You will spend two nights in Tel Aviv on this tour, and have a full day to explore this vibrant city on your own.

All of this—and much more—await you on this Bible Land tour designed for value-minded travelers. It is a vacation of a lifetime!
