Haifa - Bethlehem

€ 500.00

Visit some of the holiest sights of Christianity on this full day tour. This is a great option for those who have not been to the area before, and want to see it all!

Begin with a visit to Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus of Nazareth, located in the West Bank. Then you are on to the Mount of Olives, a mountain ridge located east of Jerusalem and the site of many important Biblical events. At the foot of the mountain you will find the Gardens of Gethsemane where, according to the New Testament, Jesus stayed the night before his crucifixion. It was also the sight where, according to Christian tradition, Christ was betrayed by Judas. Your next stop will be Mount Zion, a mountain near Jerusalem. It was the site of a Jebusite fortress of the same name, that was conquered by David. Now you will embark on the Way of the Cross (also known as the Stations of the Cross), along the Via Dolorosa or the Sorrowful Way in the medieval city of Jerusalem. This passage marks the final hours of Jesus Christ. The goal of the Stations is to help faithful Christian's in their spiritual pilgrimage, by following the scenes of Christ's sufferings and death. Next you are on to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, or the Church of the Resurrection, within the Old City walls. The church rests on the former location of the Hill of Calvary, where, according to the new Testament, Jesus was crucified. It also is said to contain the place where Jesus was reportedly buried. Afterwards, you will be transferred back to the pier and your cruise ship.
