We begin the day in Jerusalem, the City of Gold, starting with a visit to the Mount of Olives just outside the eastern side of the Old City. The mount is home to the Church of All Nations with its brilliant golden mosaic depicting Jesus as the mediator between God and man. The church is in the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus preyed before his arrest. From there we go on to Mount Zion and the Tomb of King David which is in the room below the Room of the Last Supper. We continue on foot down the Byzantine Cardo in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem's Old City. We visit the Wailing Wall, the most sacred site in the Jewish faith and the last remaining outer wall of the Second Temple which dates back to around 19BCE. The Via Dolorosa takes us along the route Jesus took bearing his cross. The Via Dolorosa or Way of the Cross ends at the beautiful Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre. You can enjoy the Christian and Moslem bazaars in the Old City's narrow streets and buy some unique and authentic souvenirs before we make a brief tour of Jerusalem's New City.
