Jerusalem Half Day Tour

Description

From the Mt. Scopus Jerusalem is spread out beneath you. We see the domes, minarets, steeples and the Dome of the Rock beyond the walls of the Old City. We descend the Mt. Scopus passing the Church of All Nations, Garden of Gethsemane and Kidron Valley. In the Jewish Quarter, we see the excavated Byzantine-era Cardo and visit the famous Western Wall, the greatest Jewish landmark in the world. The tour takes you along a section of the Via Dolorosa where Christ walked towards his crucifixion. Today the site of Christ’s crucifixion at Calvary and his burial tomb are within the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. At the Sepulchre we see beautiful chapels and Biblical sites. Visit the Old City bazaar where you can buy unique souvenirs. End the tour approx. 13:00 at the Old City. There is no return back to your hotel.

Jerusalem

Jerusalem is the holy city of three Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

Cardo Street

The Cardo was the main street in Ancient Roman cities, running from north to south and lined with a row of columns on each side.

In the northern section of the Cardo, the bazaar built by the Crusaders in the 12th century was uncovered and restored to its function as a shopping area.

Western Wall

The Western Wall is part of the ancient wall around the western slope of the Temple Mount in the Old City that survived the destruction of the Second Temple. The greatest shrine of Judaism outside the Temple Mount itself, it has for centuries been a symbol of faith and hope for many generations of Jews, a place of pilgrimage and prayer.

Church of the Holy Sepulchre

The church in the Christian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. It contains the two holiest sites in Christianity: Golgotha, the site where Jesus was crucified, and Jesus's tomb, where he was buried and resurrected.
