On our way down the mountain, we pass the Garden of Gethsemane and drive through the Kidron Valley. En-route we will pass several ancient Jewish tombs.
We enter the Armenian Quarter of the Old City and head towards the restored Cardo, once a busy Byzantine thoroughfare. In the Jewish Quarter, we visit the Wailing Wall and see the holiest Jewish site in the world.
Following the Via Dolorosa along the route Jesus took to his crucifixion at Golgotha we pass the Stations of the Cross. The Via Dolorosa leads us to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the holiest Christian site in the Old City.
Our tour of the Old City ends with a visit to the Christian and Muslim Quarter markets then we drive south through the Judean Desert.
On our way, we pass the city of Jericho and arrive at the Dead Sea where we can swim, relax and benefit from the rejuvenating natural minerals in the water, air and the black Dead Sea mud.
