Visit Jerusalem and Bethlehem on a coach tour from Tel Aviv that explores key Christian and historic sites. Combining the two destinations makes the most of your travel time from Tel Aviv, with a guide to help bring each place to life as you view Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives, follow the Via Dolorosa to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and tour churches in Bethlehem’s Manger Square.
From Tel Aviv, meet a driver at your hotel or other meeting point in the city, then board a climate-controlled coach for the trip to Jerusalem. Mount of Olives, with its sweeping views across Jerusalem, is the first stop of the day. Continue past the Garden of Gethsemane and enter the Old City to see the Western Wall, also called the Wailing Wall.
Cross into the Christian Quarter on your way to the Via Dolorosa, whose 14 stations of the cross lead to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, built on the site where Jesus is believed to have been crucified.
From there, stroll the Byzantine-era main street and board the coach for the short trip to Bethlehem’s Manger Square. In Bethlehem, see key places from the biblical nativity story, visiting a pair of historic churches before the return trip to Tel Aviv.
