We begin our tour at the Mount of Olives for a scenic overview of the entire city of Jerusalem. This mountain ridge is east of the Old City and named for the olive groves that once covered its slopes. The Mount has been a site of Christian worship since ancient times and continues to be a place of pilgrimage for Eastern Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant believers. According to the gospel, a number of important events in the life of Jesus took place here, including where he ascended into heaven.
We next, take a short drive to Mount Zion to see David’s Tomb and the Last Supper Room, where Jesus shared the Last Supper with the disciples. We pass through the Jewish cemetery in the Kidron Valley and into the Old City’s Jewish Quarter through Zion’s Gate, also known as David’s Gate, to explore the Four Sephardic Synagogues, four interconnected synagogues built at different periods in time to accommodate the religious needs of a distinct community (Sephardic) of Jews.
Finally, we arrive at the City of David, located on a narrow ridge just to the south of the Old City. The archaeological exploration of the City of David began in the middle of the 19th Century and continues today. Above ground, the City of David is a hub of activity, but underground Jerusalem is where recent excavations reveal the most exciting archaeological finds of the ancient world.
This City of David tour concludes here, with a return trip by coach back to your Jerusalem hotel.
