Daily Itinerary

Day 1 TEL AVIV - JERUSALEM

Upon arrival in Tel Aviv, an airport representative will meet you after the passport control desk. Afterwards, your representative will assist you to pick up your luggage where you will later walk through the arrivals gate to meet your driver who will be waiting for you. A private vehicle with driver will provide an Airport transfer between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem for overnight

Day 2 JERUSALEM

Begin the day with your private English-speaking driver-guide at the Mount of Olives, gazing upon the evocative panorama of the Old City below, with expansive views of the olive tree canopies, cemeteries, and churches. From here, enter the Old City through the Muslim Quarter from the eastern Lion’s Gate, stopping to visit the Church of Saint Anne and the Pools of Bethesda. Follow in the footsteps of the Via Dolorosa, an important pilgrimage route for Christian visitors, believed to mark the way to the site of Jesus’ crucifixion at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and one of the most revered Christian monuments. Stop for an Israeli lunch at a nearby restaurant (not included). Wind your way through the narrow souks connecting the Christian Quarter and the Jewish Quarter, ending the morning at the Western Wall, the former retaining wall of the Second Temple. The space in front of the Western Wall functions as an open-air synagogue, and it is considered to be the holiest accessible site where Jews may pray. Head out of the Old City through the Dung Gate to the neighboring City of David an archaeological site located outside of the Old City walls with findings dating back to the Bronze Age and covering findings from the time of the Old and New Testament. Overnight in Jerusalem

Day 3 JERUSALEM

With your English-speaking driver-guide, visit the Israel Museum to start the day. On the way, drive by the Supreme Court and the Knesset, the home of the Israeli parliament. The Israel Museum holds artefacts relevant to Judaism, Christianity and Islam alike, and the two most important exhibits are the model of the city from the time of the Second Temple, and the Shrine of the Book, housing the Dead Sea Scrolls, the oldest biblical manuscripts in the world that were uncovered in nearby Qumran. Drive to the Holocaust Memorial of Yad Vashem the country’s official memorial to victims of the Holocaust, and a heart-wrenching plea against the horrors of genocide. It is a must-see for all visitors to Israel. Continue you days visiting the ancient village of Ein Karem, now one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods. Stop for lunch (not included). The village has long been a pastoral retreat from the hustle and bustle of Jerusalem and has attracted Christian pilgrims for centuries as the birthplace of John the Baptist. The Hadassah Hospital’s synagogue features the world famous Chagall Windows, a series of 12 stained-glass panels representing the original tribes of Israel is a must-see while you’re here. Overnight in Jerusalem

Day 4 JERUSALEM

With your English-speaking driver-guide, start the day with a visit to the beautiful Ein Gedi Reserve, a stunning desert oasis graced with waterfalls and referenced several times in the Book of Psalms. Continue by car to Masada, a UNESCO World Heritage Site famous as the site of King Herod’s desert mountain get-away palace, and the scene of the zealots’ final stand against the Roman Legion, with stunning vistas overlooking the desert and Dead Sea. End the day with a soak in the Dead Sea, famous for it its hyper-salinated waters and for being the lowest place on earth, located 1,412 feet below sea level. The sea was home to one of the worlds first health resorts, dedicated to King Herod. The waters have been receding over the past hundred years, leading to cooperative engineering projects between Israel and Jordan to protect the resource in the future. Overnight in Jerusalem

Day 5 JERUSALEM - TIBERIAS

Leave behind Jerusalem and head north to the more bucolic Galilee region with your private guide. Stop at Caesarea along the coast, once the Roman capital of the region. Explore the excavations of this archeological site including the aqueduct. The theater has been restored as a modern concert venue. Continue further north, pausing at Mount Carmel for a panoramic view of Haifa. Explore the beautiful and grandiose Bahai Gardens – a unique atmosphere of historic spirituality and inspired design combined with the painstaking gardening of generations. From here, drive further up the coast to the ancient port city of Acre, also known as Akko. The Crusaders left their mark on this UNESCO town as the former capital of their kingdom. The fortifications jut into the Mediterranean at the southern sea wall. The last stop of the day is in Rosh Hanikra along the Lebanese border. Descend by cable car into the stunning limestone grottos. Formally only accessible from the sea, the grottos are now accessed by the steepest cable car in the world. End the day with a relaxing evening at your Galilee hotel. Overnight in Tiberias

Day 6 TIBERIAS

Begin the day at the Mount of Beatitudes, situated to the north of the Sea of Galilee. The Mount is believed to be the location where Jesus gave his Sermon on the Mount, and the views from the hill are awe-inspiring. Drive a short distance down the hill to Tabgha, believed to be the location of the miracle of the multiplication of the loaves and fishes. The Church of the Primacy of St. Peter and the Church of the Multiplication are must-sees in this town, and the area is also famous for its wide spectra of flora and fauna. From here, continue to Capernaum, a town cited in all four gospels and viewed as the home of St. Peter. The town is home to the ruins of a 4th century synagogue, one of the oldest in the world, built on the site of an earlier synagogue and that may have been the one mentioned in the gospels. End the day with a visit to Beit Shean Archeological National Park, where you can see the history of Israel through the archaeological remains from each historic period. See the ancient wall that surrounded the city, public baths, a Roman temple, stores, artisan workshops and other well-preserved structures. The central Palladius street is lined by impressive colonnades. There are rare mosaics and a Roman amphitheater which is still in use today. Overnight Tiberias

Day 7 TEL AVIV
