Start with a breathtaking panoramic overview of Jerusalem, the Temple Mount, and the entire old city of Jerusalem. You can imagine the glorious Second Temple just before it was destroyed in 70 AD.
Continue along Kidron Valley viewing Mount Olives, an ancient Jewish burial site; the Garden of Gethsemane, a beautiful garden with some very old olive trees which got its name from Greek, a corruption of the Hebrew words 'gath-shmanin' – oil press; and the Church of All Nations, also known as the Church of the Agony, built in the 1920s with donations from Christian communities all over the world, also known as the Church of All Nations.
Enter the Old City passing the Armenian Quarter, one of the four quarters of the Old City of Jerusalem. A large section of the Armenian Quarter is occupied by closed compound of the Armenian Monastery.
Head to the Cardo, the main street of the Old City 1,500 years ago. It was destroyed over the decades, restored, and today the Cardo is a vibrant marketplace full of art galleries and unique goods. Continue through the Jewish Quarter, one of the quarters of the Old City of Jerusalem where you will see many holy and historical sites of the Jewish people. Proceed to the Western Wall, also known as the Wailing Wall or Kotel.
Walk along the Via Dolorosa, the path that Jesus walked, carrying his cross, on the way to his crucifixion. Follow the Stations of the Cross and end at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, identified as the place both of the crucifixion and the tomb of Jesus of Nazareth.
After a short walk through the market we exit the Old City and continue to Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Museum. It is a living memorial to the 6 million Jews that perished in the Holocaust and those who risked their lives to save them.
Please note: On Fridays, Saturdays, and Jewish High Holidays the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum is closed. On those days the tour visits King David's Tomb, the Hall of the Last Supper, and the Garden of Gethsemane.
