After being met by your private guide, drive up into the hills of Jerusalem in your air-conditioned vehicle. Stop at Mount of Olives, with its panoramic views, the highlight of which is the astonishing Dome of the Rock. Drive on through the Kidron Valley, via the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed the night before his death, and enjoy a stroll through the beautiful garden. Afterwards, travel on to the Old City of Jerusalem, over 2,000 years old and made up of four very distinct quarters. Firstly walk through the Armenian Quarter, enjoying the brightly-coloured ceramics, then into the Jewish Quarter, home to the Western (Wailing) Wall. Built by King Herod and destroyed by the Romans, it is the last remaining structure of the Second Temple and today acts as an open-air synagogue for religious Jews. Journey on through the ‘Cardo’ - in Byzantine times a major thoroughfare - and today renovated and full of small galleries and stores. Wander into the Christian Quarter, where Jesus walked Jesus, along the Via Dolorosa, finally arriving at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the site at which he was crucified and buried and today a focal point for Christian pilgrims around the world.
Break for lunch at a place of your choice, then continue in the Muslim quarter, enjoying the atmosphere of a Middle Eastern bazaar and drink a cup of dark Arabic coffee before bargaining for sweets and souvenirs (your guide will help you in this regard). Finally, travel onto Jaffa Road in Jerusalem’s New City, which provides an excellent snapshot of life in the capital, with its cafes, street scenes and famous Mahane Yehuda food market. Stroll around the area there before returning to Ashdod port for drop-off at your hotel.
