Starting Early on the Mount of Olives we begin with a briefing on the history of Jerusalem whilst taking in the views of the Old City below. We make our way to the Garden of Gethsemane where we visit the famous Church of All Nations and the beautiful Orthodox Church dedicated to Mary Magdalene. From here we make our way up to the old city walls and begin our tour of Jerusalem's Old City at the Western wall. The Western wall is by far the most sacred site in Jerusalem for Jews, it is situated next to the temple mount. We visit the fascinating excavations of the city wall tunnels and visit the Dome of the Rock (if open), which is Islam's most sacred place in Jerusalem. From here we make our way through the Jewish Quarter to the Pools of Bethesda near the Lion's gate. We visit the Islamic school which enjoys spectacular views of the Dome of the Rock. Beside the school we find the picturesque Franciscan Monastery of the Flagellation, which marks the beginning of the Way of the Cross (Via Dolorosa). The Via Dolorosa has many sights of interest along its length and it leads through the Arab quarter and Arab market to the massive Christian Church of the Holy Sepulcher. We tour the various decorative chapels within this imposing Church including the hill of Golgotha (Cavalry) and the Tomb of Jesus. From here we head to the Citadel of David and tour the museum and ancient ruins. A short walk from here through the Armenian quarter and we reach Zion's gate and Mount Zion. Here we find both the Last Supper Room and the traditional site of the Tomb of King David. We take in the views as the sun sets over Jerusalem and our packed day of Jerusalem sight-seeing draws to an end. Transportation from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv or other locations available upon request.
