IL01: Jerusalem Highlights

We start the day  at the  Mount of Olives viewpoint  for a view and a review of the city’s history.

Next we descend to the Garden of Gethsemane , and crossing the kidron valley we enter the Old City  and join the “Via Dolorosa,  walking through the streets of the old city up to the  Holy Sepulchre  .

After a lunch + possible shopping break in the market of the Old City , we continue to the Jewish Quarter  and appreciate its synagogues and archaeological finds, including a visit to the Western wall  .

If there is time and desire,  we can also go to a view towards Bethlehem  from the Olives Columns environmental sculpture  near kibbutz Ramat Rachel, and on the way back we pass by the parlaiment building (the “Knesset “); the Israel Museum ,  and the Supreme Court Building .
