One Day Jerusalem and Bethlehem Tours
Welcome to Bethlehem tour from Jerusalem! Your English-speaking driver-guide will pick you up on time in your hotel lobby and drive to Mount Zion in the south of the city, to visit King David's Tomb, the Last Supper Room, Marco Tower and Dormition Abbey. Mount Zion is of great religious and historical value to Jews and Christians. It is a holy place for Christians, and the site of King David's Tomb is the holy place for Jews. Of all the kings of Israel, King David, the first Jewish king of Israel, is described as the most righteous king and a great warrior, musician and poet. The Tomb of King David is just a cenotaph. The sarcophagus is embroidered with patterns such as crowns and harps. Since King David's Tomb is the holy place in the Jewish religion, the pilgrims who come here every day will always fill the small burial chamber. The Marco Tower on the mountain is where the Room of Last Supper is located. Dormition Abbey on Mount Zion is thought to be the resting place of Jesus' mother Mary. Kaiser Wilhelm II bought the site from Sultan Abdul H II in 1898 and built the Dormition Abbey in 1910.
Then you will return to the Old City of Jerusalem to visit the Western Wall, the first holy place of the Jews, where the Jews whisper and read the Bible. For thousands of years, when Jews return from any corner of the world to Jerusalem, they would come to the Western Wall, crying, praying and saying their suffering in a low voice to seek for peace of mind, so it is also called the "Wailing Wall". It is said that this is also the closest place to God and if you write your wish and stuff it into the wall, God will help you achieve it.
Then you will follow Jesus's footsteps and walk along the Way of the Cross and visit the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, where Jesus Christ was crucified, buried, and resurrected according to legend.
In the afternoon, you will head to the last stop of the Bethlehem and Jerusalem tour, Bethlehem – the birthplace of Jesus. This is also the holy place of Judaism and Christianity. Here the Church of the Nativity is considered to be one of the few buildings that have been well-preserved after a long period of ups and downs since the early days of Christianity, and the oldest Christian church to this day. In 2012, it was included in the World Cultural Heritage List. If time permits, your driver-guide will also take you to see the field of the shepherd who first embraced Jesus. Then the Bethlehem tour from Jerusalem ends. You will be transferred back to your hotel.
