Holy City of Jerusalem Walking Tour

  • English English
  • 4 hours

Discover the religious legacy of one of the world's oldest cities, and learn what makes it the spiritual centre of the world for Christians, Muslims and Jews on this guided walking tour of the Holy City of Jerusalem.

Itinerary

Start your walking tour of Jerusalem's sacred sites from the meeting point next to Jaffa Gate. From here, you'll make your way over to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. As you explore the church, your expert guide will remind you of the Bible passages that name this site as the exact place where Jesus was resurrected after his crucifixion.

According to scripture, Jesus was made to carry his own cross towards Golgotha, the place of his execution. You'll follow the route he took, known as the Via Dolorosa, or Way of Grief, as your guide reveals the significance of each of the different Stations of the Cross.

After getting to know these sites of great importance to Christianity, you'll head over to one of the main Jewish symbols of Jerusalem: the Western Wall. This small segment of ancient wall is the only remains of the Holy Temple that was destroyed by the Romans. Learn all about the history of this sacred site, said to be the place of birth of Adam, the father of all humans according to the Abrahamic religions.

Only a few steps away from the Wall, you'll visit a monument of huge significance to the Islamic faith: the Qubbat al-Sakhrah or Dome of the Rock Mosque. According to belief, this holy shrine was built on the exact site where Mohammed ascended to heaven.

Admire the stunning colours and elaborate tilework of the mosque's mosaics, before finishing your tour returning to the original meeting point in the Old City of Jerusalem.
