Inside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem, you will walk on the Temple Mount, stroll through the shop area where Jesus overturned the tables, and sit on the steps on that Jesus would have taken into the Temple. We will take you to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, along the Via Dolorosa - the Way of the Sorrows/Cross)- to holy Mount Zion, and to the Western (Wailing) Wall.
See the bustling comings and goings at Damascus Gate, and enter King Zedekiah's Cave, also known as the quarries from which Solomon hewed the rocks for the Temple. If you have enough time, you will also enjoy the biblical atmosphere in Ein Kerem and its historic churches; you will be guided through the emotional experience of Yad VaShem and the wonders of the Bible Lands and Israel Museums.And last but not least, New Jerusalem, with its Jewish markets and 19th century houses.
In the Galilee, you will continue walking in the footsteps of Jesus. You may take a tour of Nazareth Village, worship at the Church of the Annunciation, visit the sites where Jesus performed miracles - like Tabha, Kursi, and Cana, sail the Sea of Galilee, view a ship from the time of Jesus, climb Mount Bereniki to touch an anchor that has been holy to Christians for two millenia, see Tiberias, ascend Mount Tabor, explore Capernaum, visit ancient Tzippori, and take a dip in the Jordan River. Spend time on Mount Carmel, at the fabulous Bahai Gardens, walk through Acre's Crusader City, the grottos of Rosh Hanikra, and much more!
In Haifa you can visit Elijah's cave, and nearby, at Mukraka, see where Eliljah won the contest over the pagan god ba'al. Hopefully there will be time for a day in the Dead Sea, at the springs of Ein Gedi and the famous Massada Fortress. Get a look at Lot's Wife, and view the Dead Sea from Mount Sodom.
