Israel Tours from Eilat borders ( Dead Sea + Jerusalem Tour )

We set out from Eilat and drive along the Arava Valley towards the Dead Sea where we stop for a short break. There is also a possibility to take a short dip in its unique and healthy water. Then we ascend to The Holy City, Jerusalem. We start with a panoramic view from The Mount of Olives – a good place for an introduction to the city and its history. Then we visit the holy sites of the three monotheistic religions represented in Jerusalem: We start with the Wailing Wall, which represents the last remnants of the Jewish Temple, destroyed by the Romans. Usually you can see the various types of Jews who come to worship at this holy place. If open to visitors we ascend to the Temple Mount where we can look at the famous Dome of the Rock. Then we continue through the Arab Market ("Souq") to the "Via Dolorosa", Jesus' "Way of Suffering", which leads us to The Church of the Holy Sepulchure where according to the Christian tradition Jesus was crucified and buried. After lunch, we drive to Bethlehem, the Birth town of Jesus Christ. Here we visit the Church of the Nativity including the Grotto of the Manger. This church is the oldest church in the world and has never been destroyed to this very day.
