After breakfast at the hotel, we’ll drive to the Mount of Olives for a panoramic view of the Old City of Jerusalem.
Afterward, we’ll head to Mount Zion to see King David's Tomb, Dormition Abbey, and the Room of the Last Supper (yes that Last Supper) before entering the walled Old City of Jerusalem.
Nothing truly compares to the magic you feel when entering the Old City of Jerusalem for the first time. Pilgrims have been flocking to this small walled city for thousands of years to take in the magic. You’ll not only get to experience the magic of Jerusalem, but you’ll be lucky enough to experience it on Christmas Eve, surely one of the most tangibly electric days of the year in the Old City.
Via the city’s narrow biblical alleyways we will arrive at the Western Wall - Judaism’s holiest site. After this we’ll walk the Via Dolorosa, the route Jesus took on his way to be crucified, ending in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jesus’ last stop and place of Crucifixion.
That evening, you’ll enjoy a festive Christmas Eve dinner at one of the most unique and historic hotels in Jerusalem. The halls will be decked, and yes, the yuletiude will be gay.
