What To Expect

After being picked up by your private guide, travel by air-conditioned bus from Haifa port to Jerusalem, around a two-hour ride. Stand at the top of the Mount of Olives and gaze out at panoramic views of the city, including the stunning Dome of the Rock. Pass through the Kidron Valley and the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus was said to have prayed the night before his crucifixion. Then begin your walk through the Old City in the Armenian Quarter, wandering through ancient Byzantine roads and into the Jewish Quarter, where you can stand in awe in front of the Western Wall.  Also known as the Wailing Wall, this is the equivalent of an open-air synagogue and a site that it is extraordinarily holy for Jews, being the last remaining wall of the Second Temple.
Walk through the Cardo, a bustling thoroughfare in Roman Times,  and into the Christian Quarter, retracing the steps of Jesus along the Via Dolorosa.  Then enter into the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, noting the carved crosses in the stone walls. This is the site where Jesus was both crucified and buried and is a focal point for Christian pilgrims. Then onto the Muslim Quarter, full of spices, coffee pottery and more. Journey onto Bethlehem, around 30 minutes drive, and stroll through Manger Square, flanked by both the Church of the Nativity and the Mosque of Oman, then explore the Milk Grotto where the Virgin Mary was said to have nursed Jesus. It is also possible to visit the Roman Catholic St. Catherine’s church, as well as the Greek Orthodox Church nearby. Then return to Haifa Port with your guide to rejoin your cruise ship.
