Leaving from Tel Aviv, we’ll head to Jerusalem and enter the Jaffa Gate. Walk through all four quarters of the Old City and discover what makes each one unique. Along the way, you’ll have a chance to discover the remains of the Roman Cardo as well as the Hurva Synagogue, and listen to the fascinating story behind these historic monuments.
Next, we’ll ascend to a viewpoint where you’ll get a view of some of the most important religious sites in the world. Overlooking the Temple Mount, Dome of the Rock and Al Aqsa Mosque, you’ll dive into the rich and complex history of this inspiring city. You’ll catch a glimpse of the legendary Mount of Olives, home to the oldest Jewish cemetery in the world, before visiting the Western Wall, still standing after thousands of years. Walking along the Via Dolorosa, you’ll then visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, followed by a chance to explore the colourful and chaotic Old City Bazaar.
After exploring the religious and historical parts of Jerusalem, you’ll have a unique experience by going to the contemporary heart of the city and exploring the Mahane Yehuda Market. Walking through this winding maze, you’ll take in the local aromas, flavors, and colors. This bustling marketplace is widely viewed by locals as a symbol of Jerusalem, a place which represents and gives them a unique identity within a larger Israeli social context. Whilst retaining its authentic character, it simultaneously incorporates the new aspects of this remarkable city.
Leaving Jerusalem, we’ll drive to our final stop at the Dead Sea at the best time of day, when the water is cool and inviting with the beach both comfortable and relaxing. You’ll have time to float in the famous salty waters or immerse yourself in the mineral-rich mud which is sold around the world as beauty products. Finish your stay by trying some local dates and walnuts before we pack up and head back to Tel Aviv.
