    Stop At: The Way of the Cross - Via Dolorosa, Via Dolorosa Old Town, Jerusalem Israel

    Holy Jerusalem and Dead Sea Tour 

    Our first stop in Jerusalem is at view Mount of Olives where we can look out across the ancient city. We are able to peer down over the walls of Jerusalem's Old City and on to the many famous sites like the Dome of the Rock on Temple Mount with its iconic gold colored dome. As we descend the Mount of Olives we can 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. We pass through the Kidron Valley and follow the walls of the Old City until we reach the Zion Gate and the entrance to the Armenian Quarter. We walk along the Cardo, the restored main Byzantine street which ran through the Old City.

    We arrive in the Jewish Quarter at the Western Wall (Kotel or Wailing Wall) it is the last remaining retaining wall of the Jewish Temple which was destroyed in 70AD. Here Jews gather 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.

    Our next site is the Via Dolorosa or Way of the Cross; this was the route Jesus took, carrying his cross towards his crucifixion. The Via Dolorosa wends its way through the Old City lanes and markets. Each of the 14 Stations of the Cross where Jesus paused are marked with an explanation of the events. We reach the last point on this holy route at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, constructed on the site where Jesus was crucified at Golgotha. The huge church has several beautifully adorned chapels and within the church are five of the Stations of the Cross – the 10th where Jesus was stripped of his clothes; The Chapel of the Nailing on the Cross ,The Rock of Calvary ; the 13th station where Jesus' body was removed from the cross andthe place where Jesus was laid to rest in his tomb .

    Our journey takes us passed the Biblical city of Jericho and further south to the Dead Sea. On the way through the desert we pass the mark which indicates that we are now going beneath sea level; the Dead Sea is the lowest point on Earth at about 400 meters below sea level. After an exciting day of sightseeing we can relax with a swim in the famous sea. The Dead Sea is 9.6 times saltier than the ocean and the high saline content will keep you afloat so you can pose for a classic shot reading a newspaper. Give yourself a natural spa treatment by covering your skin with the black Dead Sea mud, then plunge back into the water for a rejuvenating swim.

      We got a good thorough overview of Jerusalem and a great walk through the Old City. The guide was great and told us everything about the different sections of the old city. The visit at the Dead Sea was a bit short, but we experienced it and want to come back another time

        Calificación General: 10/10
