The Old City of Jerusalem holds within its ancient walls incredible stories dating 3000 years back. The stories of kings and conquerors, rebellions, exiles, myths, faith, miracles, and bloody wars are all layers upon layers accumulated over time, waiting to be peeled away and retold.
The Old City has always been a residential area. Today, it is home to various communities belonging to the 3 large monotheistic faiths, residing in four quarters (Armenian, Christian, Jewish, and Muslim). However, in spite of the fact that the space within the walls is rather small (less than one square kilometer), it is also packed with important religious sites frequented year-round by people from all over the world.
On this tour, we will visit some of the Old City’s most symbolic religious and historic sites such as the Western Wall, the Via Dolorosa, and The Church of Holy Sepulcher, the Room of Last Supper and King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion and much more. While we walk from site to site we will be able to observe the local communities as they go about their day-to-day lives.
