What To Expect
Day 1 Jerusalem and Bethlehem
Travel along the Kidron Valley to view the Garden of Gethsemane and the walls of the city. Via the Armenian Quarter, enter The Western (Wailing) Wall square, passing through the local Bazaar on the way to the Christian Quarter, the Stations of the Cross (via Dolorosa) and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre - the site of the crucifixion. Walk along the 1700 year old Byzantine main street, the Cardo and the renovated Jewish Quarter. Go up Mt. Zion and visit the Hall of the Last Supper as well as David's tomb. Enter the 500 year old city ramparts.
Bethlehem, also known as the City of Bread from the wheat crop that grew in the region, is the birthplace of King David. According to Christian tradition, Jesus was also born there. We will drive to Bethlehem via Nativity Circle, visit the cave where Jesus was born and see the Manger Square where Jesus was placed after his birth. We will also visit the Greek and the Catholic Church as well as the Milk Grotto, where Mary fed her son. You'll also get to view Shepherd's Fields and visit the church before you return to Jerusalem.
Day 2 Dead Sea Relaxation
Descend to the Judean Desert via the Inn of the Good Samaritan and get a view of Jericho. Relax in one of the resorts on the shore of the mineral-rich Dead Sea. Enjoy the unique experience of floating on your back in the water and rubbing therapeutic Dead Sea mud on your body. On your way back to Jerusalem, you will get a glimpse of the Qumran cave - the site where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.
