Day 1 - Jerusalem Highlights
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, the Church of All Nations and the Orthodox Church of Mary Magdalene. We tour Jerusalem's Old City starting at the Western Wall next to the temple mount. We visit the excavations of the city wall tunnels and visit the Dome of the Rock (if open), which is Islam's most important site 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, this marks the beginning of the Way of the Cross (Via Dolorosa). We walk the whole length of the 'Way of the Cross' 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 Calvary and the Tomb of Jesus. From here we head to the Citadel and through the Armenian quarter 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. Overnight in Jerusalem in 4* hotel.
