Spend time at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher a 4th-century church encompassing Golgotha where Christ was crucified and His holy tomb. Continue to Mount Zion to visit the Room of the Last Supper and King David’s Tomb. At the end of the tour, you can be dropped off at a Light Rail stop in Jerusalem or at the BY14 Hotel in Tel Aviv.
Jerusalem is the holy city of three Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
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.
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.
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.
