day by day
Arrival at Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv where you will meet with our guide. Train ride to Jerusalem. Dinner and night in the hotel.
Discovering Jerusalem: we will be immersed in the history of a unique city as we listen to the Biblical narratives. Our guide will illustrate the fascination of the places where Jesus walked as told in the Gospel accounts. On the Mount of Olives, where Jesus often secluded himself in prayer, and where his Passion began, we will reach the Garden of Gethsemane, the Basilica of the Agony and the little church of Dominus Flevit, where we can get a glimpse of the Temple Mount. And last but not least, a visit to the evocative site of the Tomb of Mary.
We will visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which is the most important pilgrimage destination for a christian. Within the church we will visit Mount Calvary, where Jesus was crucified, and we will visit the Empty Tomb, where Jesus rose from the dead. On Mount Sion we will visit the Upper Room, where Jesus shared his Last Supper with his Apostles and where the Holy Spirit descended upon the Mary and the Apostles after the Resurrection, on the day of Pentecost. Nearby is Dormition Abbey, where the Virgin Mary passed away in the company of the Apostles. And then we will visit the Church of Saint Peter in Gallicantu, where we the Sanhedrin passed sentence on Jesus and where Peter denied knowing Jesus for three times.
The Western wall or "Kotel", also known as the “Wailing Wall”, is the holiest place for Jews. Here we will see how Jewish people pray as they gather to memorialize the Temple that is no more. The splendid building used to be on the Mount above the Wall but was destroyed in the year 70 A.D. by the Roman army during the suppression of the Jewish revolt. Today the Mount has become the Al Aqsa Compound or "Haram as-Sharif", which is the third most holy place for muslims after Mecca and Medina. On the Mount we will see the splendor of the Dome of the Rock.
Throughout our visits we will behold the charm of the Old City of Jerusalem, built in stone and perched on rock, surrounded by ancient walls, great city gates, stacked houses and narrow alleys which accomodate the “suk”, the colorful marketplace bustling with locals.
Having the “Jerusalem City Pass”, we will have the opportunity of visiting historical sites such as the Tower of David and the Israel Museum. In the more modern area of the city we can visit significant places such as the Holocaust Memorial Museum "Yad Vashem", which accomodates the Garden of the Righteous among the Nations.
There will be time for a few last visits (depending on the timetable for the return flight) before we catch our train back to the Tel-Aviv airport for the return flight.
You can choose the option of adding one or more nights in Tel Aviv, called the “White City” for the white color of the buildings in Allenby Street and for the Bauhaus style architecture.
Here you can visit Rothschild Boulevard, the Ha Carmel marketplace, the Neve Tzedek neighborhood, and Rabin and Dizengoff squares. This last site is where Ben Gurion read aloud the Declaration of Independence in 1948. The ancient biblical site of Joppa is now in the suburbs of Tel Aviv, a visit here is a must. It is the oldest Mediterranean port, with characteristic stone houses which have been recently renovated. There is a delightful beach with white sand below the center of town, where a Greek myth places the tale of Andromeda and where the Bible places the story of Jonah.
You can extend your stay in Jerusalem by one or more nights so as to have more time to visit the historical places in the Old City. Or you stroll through the modern area of the city, passing through Indipendence Park to Jaffa Road and to the pedestrial area of Ben Yehuda Street all the way to the Mahane Yehuda spice market.
