Enter the Old City via the Zion Gate. Pass through the Armenian Quarter en route to the Jewish Quarter and the 1500 year old Byzantine Cardo. Partially destroyed and abandoned during the Muslim conquest, it had a brief new lease on life during the Crusader period. The excavated Crusader shops are now modern stores. Stop at the Kotel or Western Wall where Jews have prayed since the destruction of the Temple in 70 CE. Built by King Herod, it served as a supporting wall enclosing the Temple Mount area.
Walk along the Via Dolorosa or the Way of the Cross, the route many pilgrims follow on their way to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the church built on the site of Jesus’ crucifixion and tomb. Although the Byzantine church was partially destroyed during the Persian and Muslim conquests, the rebuilt and redesigned Crusader Church preserved much of the earlier church.
Exit the Old City by way of the market and the Jaffa Gate for a short tour of the new city. Visit Yad VaShem, the Holocaust Museum, and see artifacts and photographs documenting the discrimination, persecution, and finally the annihilation of Jewish communities across Europe.
On Fridays, Saturdays, and Jewish Holidays when the Holocaust Museum is closed, the tour will include a visit to the Church of All Nations at the Garden Gethsemane, King David's Tomb, and the Hall of the Last Supper on Mount Zion.
