Old City of Jerusalem

Description

Before entering Old City of Jerusalem we take in the view of Jerusalem’s skyline from the Mt. of Olives. We can see beyond the Old City walls to the Dome of the Rock. Descending the mount we pass the beautiful Garden of Gethsemane, Church of All Nations, and Kidron Valley where there are centuries-old monumental Jewish tombs. We visit the Dormition Church and arrive on Mt. Zion. We visit the Room of the Last Supper and King David’s Tomb.
We pass through the 500-year-old Old City walls by way of the Zion Gate and into the Armenian Quarter. At the Jewish Quarter, we see the Byzantine-era Cardo and stop at the sacred Western Wall. The tour retraces Jesus’ footsteps along the holy Via Dolorosa to the beautiful Church of the Holy Sepulchre. This ornate 4th-century church holds the site of the crucifixion, Christ’s burial tomb, and countless religious relics. Our final stop is at the colorful Old City bazaar.

Jerusalem

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

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.

 

Golgotha

Golgotha, also called Calvary is a skull-shaped hill in ancient Jerusalem, the site of Jesus’ crucifixion.

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.

Mount Zion

For Jews, Zion became a symbol of Jerusalem and the entire Promised Land, which the Jewish people have been striving for since the dispersion after the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem.

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.
