A tour through Jerusalem’s Old City is a jam-packed affair – there is so much to see here, but thankfully it’s all very close together! You’ll start with a visit to the Mount of Olives, a viewpoint from which you can look out across the Old City and take in the skyline. Zooming in, you’ll then enter through Jaffa Gate and start at the cobbled stones of the 2,000-year-old Cardo, the Roman marketplace that sits in the heart of the Old City, before going to the Muslim quarter to view Temple Mount, the site of Al-Aksa Mosque, and gaze up at the golden Dome of the Rock.

Moving onto the Western Wall (also known as the Kotel), one of the most recognisable landmarks in Jerusalem, you’ll take a moment here to reflect before heading underground into the tunnels that sit below. Finally you’ll visit the Christian quarter, witnessing the Stations of the Cross down the Via Dolorosa – the path Jesus took on the way to his crucifixion – and arrive at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Garden Tomb where Jesus is said to have been buried and resurrected.
