Tour the Little Town of Bethlehem
|Visit the Church of Nativity|
|Inn of the Good Samaritan|
Experience the sights of the birthplace of Christianity, the "little town of Bethlehem" only a few short miles away from Jerusalem, and then visit one of the oldest cities in world, where the walls came tumbling down: Jericho.
From Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, you'll drive to Bethlehem, and drives by Rachel's Tomb, the most significant Jewish holy site in town, and then proceed to the Church of the Nativity and Manger Square for a firsthand glimpse at the holy sites immortalized in the Gospels. After taking in a scenic overview of the shepherd's field, you'll descend into the forbidding Judean Desert on your way to Jericho. You'll stop at the Good Samaritan Inn, briefly commemmorate your arrival at sea level, and then move onward into the city.
Once inside Jericho, you'll visit Zacchaeus' Sycamore Tree and gaze out from atop of the Mount of Temptations. The day culminates with a tour of the Jericho tel, where the remains of 25 ancient cities going back 10000 years lie atop each other.
