Boker Tov (Good morning)!
Start your day with a delicious Israeli breakfast at your hotel before joining other OUTstanding visitors on our tour to Jerusalem - the eternal capital of Israel... a short 50 minutes from Tel Aviv.
Start with Mishkenot Sha’ananim (in Hebrew- Peaceful Habitation) and ‘Yemin Moshe’– the groundbreaking, first Jewish neighborhoods to be built outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem, on a hill directly across from Mount Zion.
‘Yemin Moshe’ neighborhood, named after Moshe Montefiore, was abandoned during the Independence War. However, after the reunification of Jerusalem in 1967, the neighborhood became a home to academics, writers and artists.
The iconic, famous windmill, still standing in Mishkenot Sha'ananim neighborhood today was the first factory established outside of the old city walls. Montefiore founded the mill to provide cheap flour to the neighborhoods population.
Today these neighborhoods are home to galleries, restaurants, cafes, and the Jerusalem Music Center
Continue to Mount Zion and visit King David's tomb, the Room of Last Supper and the Dormition Abbey before entering the Old City via the Zion Gate towards the Jewish Quarter. Together we will tour the recently excavated and restored Roman Cardo, once the ancient Roman road at the heart of the city.
Just as in biblical times, our route will lead us to the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest site and the last remnant of the Second Temple. Finally, we will make our way to the Christian Quarter and walk along the Via Dolorosa to visit the Church of the Holy Sepulcher as we join pilgrims from around the world, revering the Tomb of Jesus Christ.
As the sun sets on the hills of Judea, we will make our way back to the white city of Tel Aviv... take a nap on the bus you wont want to miss a night out in the city that never sleeps.
