Bethlehem

Bethlehem (from Hebrew: “House of Bread”), is a historical site in the Judean mountains, famed for being the hometown of King David, as well as the birth place of Jesus of Nazareth.

Bethlehem’s ecnomy is mostly tourist-driven, as it has several important Holy Christian sites – the Church of Nativity   and Cave of Saint Jerome , The Milk Grotto , and the Shepherds’ Field .

Near Bethlehem are Rachel’s Tomb  and Herodium  .

Bethlehem is in the West Bank, near Jerusalem, and takes about 2-3 hours to explore.

Since I only offer full day tours, and cannot take you personally into Bethlehem, I recommend to contact me for a proposal of a full day tour of Jerusalem, that will also include a visit to Bethlehem with a Palestinian guide.
