About this activity
Embark on your private tour of Jerusalem and Bethlehem, commencing from the revered Mount of Olives, an ancient Jewish burial site offering panoramic vistas of the Old City and Temple Mount. Your journey continues with a visit to the serene Garden of Gethsemane, adjacent to the Church of All Nations. As you traverse the Kidron Valley, you'll encounter significant landmarks such as the tombs of Ben Hazir, Yad Avshalom, and the presumed resting place of Zechariah.
Next on your itinerary is Mount Zion, where you'll explore the Dormition Church. The Coenaculum, or Upper Room, is believed to be the site of the Last Supper. Delve into the history of the Tomb of David, draped and adorned with his distinctive attributes.
Venturing into the Old City via the Zion Gate, you'll traverse the Armenian quarter. Follow the path of the Byzantine Cardo, once the main thoroughfare in biblical times and now home to modern shops selling Judaica. Take a moment to absorb the ambiance at the Western Wall, known as the Kotel. Your journey continues along the Via Dolorosa, retracing the Stations of the Cross, concluding at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, a sacred site built atop the crucifixion location and housing the tomb of Jesus. Afterward, explore the vibrant markets and winding alleys.
Following this exploration, your journey leads to Bethlehem, where you'll transition from your personal guide to a local one. Stroll across Manger Square and pause at the Church of the Nativity to marvel at the original Byzantine mosaic floor. Nearby, you'll discover the Nativity Grotto, marking Jesus's birthplace, along with an altar dedicated to the Three Wise Men. Adjacent yet distinct, the Crusader Church features the Grotto of the Nativity, while the small Armenian chapel of the Kings (Magi) awaits exploration. Your private tour culminates with a visit to the Shepherd's Field, where you can appreciate the vivid panels adorning the tent-shaped chapel, depicting the early life of Jesus.
