Start the day at your Tel Aviv hotel and make your first stop at Mount Zion, site of the Church of the Dormition, the Hall of the Last Supper and the Tomb of King David—this is the perfect place to get panoramic views of the Old City walls below. Enter the fortifications to visit the Armenian quarter then explore the Roman cardo road that once ran into the heart of Byzantine Jerusalem.
In the historic Jewish Quarter, visit the Western Wall — also called the Wailing Wall or Kotel — which surrounded the now-ruined Second Temple, and slip a handwritten prayer into the ancient stones. Follow the footsteps of Jesus along the Via Dolorosa, and enter the stunning Church of the Holy Sepulchre to find the final stations that represent Christ’s Passion. Finish the tour in the heart of the Old City, close to some of Jerusalem’s best restaurants, sites, and attractions.
