About this activity
Our journey through the enchanting Jerusalem Old City Tour commences with a breathtaking bird's-eye view from the vantage point of Mt. Scopus. From this elevated perch, we are treated to a panoramic vista that stretches beyond the ancient city walls, allowing us to gaze upon the iconic Temple Mount and the resplendent Dome of the Rock. As we descend the mount, our path meanders past an ancient Jewish cemetery, and we make a momentous stop at the Biblical Garden of Gethsemane, nestled beside the magnificent Church of All Nations.
Our sojourn continues, leading us to the historic Kidron Valley, where monumental Jewish tombs have silently stood for countless centuries. Drawing near to the Old City, we catch a glimpse of the Dormition Church atop Mt. Zion, a site steeped in profound religious significance.
The tour unfolds within the Old City's Armenian Quarter, with our entry through the welcoming Zion Gate. Along the way, we pass the captivating Armenian Church of St. James, providing us with intriguing insights into the vibrant Armenian culture. Our journey then takes us onward to the Jewish Quarter, where we pause to explore the Byzantine-era Cardo, a meticulously excavated 1,500-year-old thoroughfare that once bustled as Jerusalem's primary street.
In the heart of the Jewish Quarter, we stand in awe before the sacred Western Wall, an enduring symbol of faith and the last vestige of the Second Jewish Temple. As we join the many pilgrims and visitors who come here to place heartfelt prayer notes within its ancient crevices, we sense the profound spirituality that permeates this hallowed place.
Our exploration of the Jerusalem Old City retraces the poignant path that Jesus once walked, bearing his cross to the sacred site of Calvary, along the revered Via Dolorosa.
Finally, our journey leads us to the venerable Holy Sepulchre, a 4th-century church that houses the concluding Stations of the Cross, including the very site of Calvary where Jesus was crucified and his burial tomb. This monumental structure is shared by several Christian denominations, boasting more than 30 chapels that each holds a unique piece of history and devotion.
As our captivating tour of the Jerusalem Old City draws to a close, we savor the opportunity for some retail therapy amidst the vibrant stalls and shops of the traditional Old City bazaar, a fitting end to a day brimming with history, spirituality, and discovery.
