Immerse in spirituality as you journey through the holy city of Jerusalem, seeing its many biblical sites first-hand. Why not take a walk along the Via Dolorosa and visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
It is truly an experience of a lifetime to walk in the footsteps of Christ in places which are mentioned throughout the Bible.
Take a journey of spiritual discovery and visit the Church of the Nativity in Manger Square, the oldest standing church in the Holy Land, and, according to tradition, the place where Mary gave birth to Jesus. Visit the ancient Caves of Jerome and the Shepherds’ fields, identified since ancient times with the shepherds who saw the Star of Nativity.
Sitting along the shoreline of the Sea of Galilee, Tiberias takes its name from a Roman Emperor. Jesus spent time here whilst growing up, performing many of the biblical miracles. Take time to explore the Mount of Beatitudes where Jesus delivered his Sermon, before departing for Bethsaida, the birth place of three of the apostles: Peter, Andrew and Philip, and where Jesus is believed to have fed the 5,000.
