Your first stop in Jerusalem is the Mount of Olives where you can look out across the ancient city. As you descend the Mount of Olives you'll see the Garden of Gethsemane, the Church of All Nations with its colorful mosaic pediment, and the Jewish burial tombs of Zechariah, Absalom and BeneiHazir. Pass through the Kidron Valley and follow the walls of the Old City to the entrance to the Armenian Quarter. Walk along the Cardo where Crusader shops once lined the street, now home to modern up-market stores. Next, visit the Jewish Quarter and the Western Wall (Kotel or Wailing Wall). This wall is the last remaining wall of the Jewish Temple which was destroyed in 70 A.D. Jews gather here at all hours of the night and day to pray. You can place a prayer note in the cracks between the huge stones of the wall. Then, walk the Via Dolorosa or the Way of the Cross. The Via Dolorosa wends its way through the Old City lanes and markets. Each of the 14 Stations of the Cross where Jesus paused is marked with an explanation of the events.

Tel Aviv/Jerusalem: Christmas in Bethlehem and Jerusalem

7. Tel Aviv/Jerusalem: Christmas in Bethlehem and Jerusalem

Following your pickup, you will begin with great views from the Mount of Olives. It is a high summit which connects the old city of Jerusalem to the east, separating it from the Judaean Desert. Due to its proximity to the city and its soft and comfortable rock quarrying, this place was used for burial in the Canaanite days. From there you will be able to tour Jerusalem, the “City of David”. The most striking structure that emerges from the observation is the rock dome structure built by Abd al-Malek in 691 A.D. Entering the Old City, you will pass through the Old Market until you arrive to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. The Church of the Holy Sepulcher in the heart of the Christian Quarter is considered the most sacred place in the world for most Christians. You will pass through Via Dolorosa on the way back to the bus, before then heading to Bethlehem if time permits. Entering Bethlehem you will feel the Christmas spirit with the entire city decorated with banners, bells, and lights. You will continue on to Manger Square where the decorated Christmas tree is located, before enjoying a holiday dinner near Manager Square while waiting for Midnight Mass. It may be possible to enter the Church of Nativity for Mass, but if not, you will watch Midnight Mass in Manger Square on one of the large outdoor screens. Following the Mass, you will be dropped off to your starting point (Tel Aviv or Jerusalem).

Half-Day Nativity Church and Bethlehem Tour

8. Half-Day Nativity Church and Bethlehem Tour

Most travelers come away from Bethlehem saying that they did not get to spend enough time in the Nativity Church—this tour was created specifically with this in mind. This tour is an excellent choice for those staying in Tel Aviv who want to explore Bethlehem, but particularly want to explore the Nativity Church as much as possible, along with an expert guide.   The Nativity Church was built in the 4th century in the place where Jesus was born, and is the oldest complete church in the Christian religion. It was built over the cave venerated as Christ’s birthplace, and was spared by the Persians when they saw a mosaic on an interior wall depicting the Three Wise Men in Persian dress. Today’s Church of the Nativity is cool and dark, its interior bare, with no pews. It’s cloaked in wall mosaics from the 12th century depicting saints, angels and Church Councils, which have had their sheen restored. Restoration even uncovered a 2-meter mosaic of an angel that had been lost for centuries. Trapdoors in the floor also allow glimpses of the mosaic floor of Constantine’s basilica.   After an in-depth visit of the Nativity Church, your guide will explore with you the rest of Bethlehem, starting with the Church of the Shepherd’s field, where the angels announced the birth of Christ. Then, visit an olive wood factory, as well as Manger Square, and some of Banksy’s art on the Wall of Bethlehem.

What people are saying about West Bank

Overall the tour was Outstanding. It packed a lot of activities in one day. Our tour guide Jacob explained everything in details as well as entertained us with his jokes throughout the tour. We covered almost all the famous points in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and the Dead Sea, though in a rush. If you only have one day, this is an excellent tour. However, if you have more days, I would recommend to spread these visits over 2-3 days to enjoy to the fullest and not be in rush.

It was a great experience mostly because of our guide. He was no doubt the best guide we have ever had a chance to meet. His knowledge of the sites, the information he shared but above all his care for every person in the group, always looking for a way to meet our needs. I would say he was always trying to make sure we were safe, satisfied with the trip and happy about the journey.

it was a great trip, with a fantastic , energetic & very enthusiastic Guide.

Jacob was an incredible tour guide!! So happy we got this tour.

Great compact trip with the most important places and sights.
