Exclusive Shore Event: Ashdod | Holy Sights, Ethnic Quarters and the Bustling Bazaar
Our day of exploring Jerusalem begins en route, as we pass through the rolling Judean Hills from our port of Ashdod to our first stop at the Israel Museum. We'll see the impressive 21,000-square-foot Model of Jerusalem, before driving to the Mount of Olives. From here we have views to the Temple Mount, with Al-Aqsa mosque and the gold-topped Dome of the Rock-one of the city's most iconic landmarks. Our route then takes us past the Garden of Gethsemane and the colorful Church of All Nations.
Our walking tour begins as we enter the Old City through the sixteenth-century Dung Gate to the Western Wall, the holiest site in the Jewish world. We continue through the buzzing Muslim and Christian quarters, along a portion of the Via Dolorosa to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, believed to be the place of the crucifixion, burial, and resurrection.
We'll break for lunch at Bulghourji, in the Armenian Quarter, for a meal of typical Jerusalem-style cold salads and breads, along with Armenian-style kebabs. After, we'll continue walking through the Old City's colorful bazaars to the Cardo, Jerusalem's main thoroughfare during the Roman and Byzantine eras. We'll conclude at Zion Gate and re-board our coach for a drive through New Jerusalem, passing modern structures like the Jerusalem Theater and the President's Residence, before concluding our rich day in the Holy Land.
