Join a guide and visit Jericho, the lowest city in the world as well as Bethlehem and its holy places!
From your hotel depart for Jericho, the lowest city in the world, at an altitude of 240 metres below sea level. You'll cross the Judean desert and pass the 5th-century St George's Monastery which clings to the cliffs. You'll see the famous sycamore tree that the tax collector climbed to see Jesus enter Jericho. You'll also see the Mount of Temptation, which is close to Jericho, and where Jesus spent 40 days in the desert.
You'll continue on to Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus Christ. You'll stop at the Feeding Place and visit the Church of the Nativity, built over the cave where Jesus was born. You'll see ancient mosaics that date back to the 4th century.
You'll then visit the church of Saint Catherine. Beneath this church is a cave where St. Jerome translated the Bible from Hebrew into Latin.
As you leave Bethlehem you'll pass the Shepherds' Field, where the shepherds watched over their sheep on Christmas Eve.
At the end of the day you'll be driven back to the hotel pick-up/drop-off point.
