An unforgettable half day viewing the backdrop to Jesus' life
Inn of the Good Samaritan
You'll set off from the Mamilla hotel and leave Jerusalem to see the Shepherds Fields where the "shepherds kept watch of their flocks by night" and "an angel of the Lord appeared to them" (Luke 2:8-10). On your way to Jericho , you will see the Inn of the Good Samaritan , a 19th-century Turkish caravanserai which many people believe evokes the setting of the Good Samaritan parable.
Upon reaching Jericho , the lowest and quite possibly the oldest city on earth, your first stop will be the Zacchaeus Sycamore . According to tradition, this is the place where Zacchaeus, a short-statured tax collector, climbed a tree to get a better look at Jesus and where Jesus spoke with him (Luke c.19). In the distance, you'll be able to see Mount Temptation, where Jesus was tempted by the devil (Matthew 4:8). On top of the mountain is the Monastery of the Temptation which is located above the cave where Jesus is said to have fasted and meditated for forty days and nights (Matthew 4:2).
Your final destination is the Mount of Ancient Jericho , where around 25 ancient cities were unearthed over centuries of excavations. The oldest city discovered dates back to 9000 BCE.
