For those visiting for the first time in Israel, it might come as a surprise to see how the Christians, Muslims and Orthodox Jews coexist peacefully in the same land. They are dependent on one another, either knowingly or unknowingly. Most people visit Israel for a pilgrimage to the Dome of the Holy Rock or Western Wall.

Once you arrive at Tev Aviv, you will be greeted by our representative, who will take you directly to the hotel where you will be staying overnight. After that, you can spend the rest of your day on leisure activities or roaming nearby streets.
After having a full breakfast at the hotel, our representative will take you to northern Israel and the region around the sea of Galilee. You will be stopping first at Magdala, the birthplace of Mary Magdalene. Here you can see the remains of an ancient biblical-era fishing village and the ruins of a Second Temple period synagogue. Excavations are still going on in this place. After that, you will move towards the countryside of Galilee and Ginosar on the western bank of the sea of Galilee. At the time of Jesus, Ginosar was a flourishing town, but now it is a kibbutz site. It is reported that in the 1986 drought, the sea level of Galilee dropped considerably, revealing the frame of an ancient fishing boat. According to scientific carbon dating, the boat is from 100 BC-70 AD. It means that this boat was used during the time of Jesus. The boat, now known as Jesus boat, is displayed in the Beit Yigal Allon Museum on Kibbutz Ginosar.
From there, you will be taken along the shores of the sea Galilee to catch up to the Mount of Beatitudes. It is believed that on this hill, Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount. A Byzantine church was built here in the 4th century to honour this Biblical site, and in 1938 a Roman Catholic Franciscan chapel, designed by Antonio Barluzzi, was constructed on it. Afterwards, you will be heading straight to Kfar Cana, the Biblical Cana site. The Gospel of John in the Bible has mentioned this Cana several times. It is said that Jesus performed his first magical act here and turned water into wine at a wedding feast. Your that-day tour ends at the Wedding Church of Cana. There are two levels for this Franciscan Church- twin bell towers and a domed roof. Here you will also find the remains of a 5th-6th century old Byzantine mosaic. You will also find several artefacts dug during different excavations in the church museum. Among them is one of the six jars used to store the wine and is believed to be used by Jesus to perform several miracles.
After having breakfast at the hotel, our representative will take you to some of the historical and religiously significant landmarks in and around Jerusalem and Bethlehem. You can witness the memorable places mentioned in the Bible with your own eyes and study its different cultures. After that, you can go for a scenic drive along the Kidron Valley and get sight of Mount Olives and the Garden of Gethsemane, which stands at an impressive height of 800 metres from where you can see the entire Old City. It is said that the mountain was once covered with olive trees and hence is named after them. It is also famous for appearing in the Old Testament. From there, you will visit Mount Zion, ancient Jerusalem’s highest point. It was once used as a metaphoric symbol for the “Promised Land.” it is also said that the Last Supper took place here.
Now, you will be entering the Old City, where you can roam around the fascinating streets of the Jewish quarter, known for its unique architecture and narrow alleys. Here you will also find the Western Wall, which has cracks where people can write their wishes on a piece of paper and leave it on its cracks. Once you enter the Christian Quarter, you will find priests and pilgrims all over the streets who have come to visit the 40 holy sites. While walking along the Via Dolorosa, which will lead you to the Holy Sepulchre church, you will come across the place where Jesus was crucified. Since the 4th century, this place has been an important destination for pilgrims worldwide.
In Bethlehem, you will come across Shepherd’s Field, which will mesmerise you with its breathtaking landscapes. Then you will head straight to Manger’s Square and the Church of Nativity, where you can admire the ancient architecture and learn about its local culture. From here, you will be taken back to your hotel, where you will be staying overnight.
After a sumptuous breakfast at the hotel, you will leave Tev Aviv and travel to the Mediterranean coast. In between, you will come across Herzliya and Natanya before finally arriving at your destination, Caesarea. The city was constructed under the instructions of Herod and was named after the Roman Emperor, Caesar. After analysing the leftovers, we can find that Caesarea city was once a luxurious and prosperous city. Archaeologists found the gateways, well-preserved walls and rooms, and moats during their excavations. You can also see a well-maintained Roman amphitheatre which locals and international artists still use. It is believed that the sea sand covered its remains and protected it from damage. Near the arena lies the hippodrome, where you can see the remains of a Roman temple just above the port, which was once a station for commercial ships. After the Romans, the city remained neglected for centuries till the Crusaders arrived. But after their time, the city went back again to negligence.
Then we will be heading to Rosh HaNikra, the northern point along the Mediterranean coast in Israel. We will be travelling by cable car in the network of limestones created by the constant bombardment of waves against rocks. While coming back, we will be stopping at Acre(Akko), the largest crusader city in Israel. It is impressive to see how the city is still well-maintained, and you can’t go without admiring its remarkable architecture. Part of its markets are still alive, and people still live in its ancient buildings. You can also see that its walls and moats were reconstructed and repaired by El Jazzar at the end of the 1900s. The walls are so strong that they even once prevented the mighty Napolean from invading the city. Here you can also find the Crusader remains, the prisons under Turkish rule, and the gallows to hang Jews under the British government. From there, you will be travelling back to your hotel for an overnight stay.
Finally, the day of departure has arrived. You can check out from your hotel after breakfast and head back to the airport with a bag full of beautiful memories you can cherish for the rest of your life.
