Description

Go on a half-day tour of Jerusalem and its holy places including the Western Wall and the Via Dolorosa!

Set off from your hotel in the direction of Mount Scopus which overlooks Jerusalem. You'll get fantastic views of the city and its landmarks.

You'll leave Mount Scopus and pass several famous landmarks including a 300-year-old Jewish cemetery, the Garden of Gethsemane and the Church of All Nations.

You'll then pass through the Zion Gate and enter the Old City. You'll head to the Jewish Quarter and the Cardo, a street carved out of stone 1,500 years ago.

You'll then stop in front of the Western Wall, the most important Jewish monument in the world. This wall is a remnant of the second Jewish temple that was built on Temple Mount. You can even place a prayer on a piece of paper between the wall's stones.

You'll continue your visit to the Via Dolorosa, which is part of the Way of the Cross. You'll follow the path that Jesus took when carrying his cross to Mount Calvary to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre where Jesus died and was buried. This church comprises 30 chapels.

You'll end your half-day exploring Jerusalem by taking a walk through the Old City's traditional bazaar.
