Classic Jerusalem Walking Tour

This tour is good for you if you are first time in Jerusalem, if you don't want to spend your time on searching all the information by yourself, but still would love to get flavour of the Old City and Christian Quarter.

Jerusalem, perhaps, is the holiest city in the world, venerated by Jews, Christian and Muslims. It has five thousands years of history, and has witnessed more battles then anywhere else in the world. Many wish to live in it, visit it, and be buried in it.

Let's explore the map of the Jerusalem Old City. The Old city is about one square kilometer devided into four quaters: Jewish, Armenian, Christian and Muslim Quarters. Twenty percent of the Old City is Temple Mount with the Muslim Dome on it. Right above there is Jewish holy place - Western Wall. And for the Christian there is Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre marks, by Christian tradition, the very site of the crucifixion, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. It is visited by thousands of pilgrims on daily basis, and is one of the most interesting destinations in all of Israel. It’s main attractions are the Goglotha, the Tomb of Jesus, the Stone of Unction, the Chapel of the finding of the Cross, and the Immovable ladder.
