Exclusive Shore Event: Ashdod | Eternal Jerusalem with Festive Lunch
Your unforgettable day offers a wonderful opportunity to experience some of mankind's most impressive sights: Jerusalem - one of the world's oldest continuously-inhabited cities and the spiritual center for the 3 major monotheistic religions.
Boarding our vehicle at Ashdod pier, we will begin with a scenic drive into the hauntingly stark Judean Hills, travelling along the same route used for centuries to reach Jerusalem.
Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, is famous for its timeless beauty and was once considered the center of the world. As we navigate our way through this amazing city, we will pass some of Israel's most notable landmarks, such as the Knesset (Israel's parliament), the State Supreme Court, the Hebrew University (home to many Nobel Prize winners) and the world-famous Israel Museum the largest cultural institution in the State of Israel which is ranked among the world's leading art and archaeology museums.
We then drive to the Mount of Olives for a panoramic view of Old Jerusalem. View the Temple Mount with El-Aqsa and the gold-topped Dome of the Rock Mosques, considered to be the third holiest site in Islam. Traveling around the Old City, we will pass by the picturesque Garden of Gethsemane the home of the impressive Church of All Nations.
Making our way to the Old City, our walking tour begins as we enter through the Dung Gate to the Western Wall the holiest site in the Jewish world, believed to have been closest to where the Holy Ark once stood. Continue through the Muslim and Christian quarters, along part of the Via Dolorosa believed by many to be the route Jesus followed as he carried his cross to Calvary. One of Jerusalem's incredible sites is next to visit, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher - the holiest Christian shrine is situated on the Hill of Golgotha (skull hill), which used to be an execution location outside the city walls. According to Christian gospels, and compatible to archeological discoveries, this is the site of Jesus' crucifixion, burial and resurrection.
We will then enjoy a lunch of local specialties at Bulghourji Restaurant in the Armenian Quarter of the Old City.
After lunch we proceed through the Armenian Quarter to the Cardo Jerusalem's main thoroughfare during the Roman and Byzantine eras. Continue for a walk through the Jewish Quarter before ending at Mount Zion.
This wide-ranging Jerusalem tour concludes with a drive back to the port in Ashdod.
