We look out across the city of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives then drive passed the Garden of Gethsemane and around the Old City walls. We enter the Old City on foot to visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre then take a drive through the new city of Jerusalem passed the Israeli parliament, the Israel Museum and the Valley of the Cross. On route to Bethlehem we pause at the Hill of Evil Counsel for a view of the city lights. On entering Bethlehem we see the Christmas decorations and stop at a local store for refreshments. At Manger Square we enjoy a festive dinner. There may be a possibility to enter the Church of the Nativity for Mass. At midnight we watch the Church of the Nativity Midnight Mass on large outdoor screens in Manger Square before heading back to your hotel.
