Its many Biblical references have made the Mount of Olives one of the most symbolic places in Jerusalem. Get to know its fascinating history on this guided walking tour.
Mount of Olives Walking Tour
We'll meet at 2 pm next to the ancient Jaffa Gate to start a tour around the famous Mount of Olives, one of the most mystical places in the Holy Land.
The first stop on your walking tour will be the legendary Gardens of Gethsemane. This, according to the New Testament, is where Jesus prayed before being arrested by the Roman authorities of Judea. In this symbolic place, you'll visit the Basilica of the Agony where we'll discover a piece of rock on which Jesus Christ prayed his last night. Its neo-Byzantine façade won't go unnoticed.
We'll then enter the Greek Orthodox Church of the Sepulchre of Mary, a jewel built in the 4th century and rebuilt by the Crusaders, which, according to Christian Orthodox accounts, is the holy resting place of the Virgin Mary. Did you know that Catholics don't support this belief?
While we learn some facts about the life of Jesus of Nazareth, we'll reach the top of the Mount of Olives to enjoy dreamlike views of Jerusalem.
The tour will end at the original meeting point at 5 pm.
