About this activity
Begin your adventure as your private guide collects you and whisks you away from Haifa port to Jerusalem, a scenic two-hour journey. Stand atop the Mount of Olives, absorbing breathtaking views of the city, with the iconic Dome of the Rock in sight. Travel through the Kidron Valley and the hallowed Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus once prayed before his crucifixion. Your path leads you through the Old City, starting in the Armenian Quarter, where ancient Byzantine streets await, and venturing into the Jewish Quarter for a profound moment at the Western Wall, often referred to as the Wailing Wall. This open-air synagogue holds immense significance for the Jewish community, as it is the sole remnant of the Second Temple.
Wander the historic Cardo, once a bustling Roman thoroughfare, and enter the Christian Quarter, retracing the sacred steps of Jesus along the Via Dolorosa. Your next destination is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, where you'll find intricately carved crosses in the stone walls. This is the very place where Jesus was crucified and laid to rest, making it a focal point for Christian pilgrims. Continue your journey into the aromatic and lively Muslim Quarter, offering a delightful array of spices, coffee, pottery, and more.
Leaving Jerusalem, you'll head to Bethlehem, just a 30-minute drive away. Here, you'll stroll through the historic Manger Square, bordered by the Church of the Nativity and the Mosque of Oman. Explore the revered Milk Grotto, traditionally believed to be where the Virgin Mary nursed Jesus. You may also choose to visit the Roman Catholic St. Catherine’s Church or the nearby Greek Orthodox Church. After an enriching day, your guide will accompany you back to Haifa Port, where you'll reunite with your cruise ship, laden with cherished memories of this remarkable journey.
