Caesarea

See the ancient Roman theater, built by Herod and once the capital of Judea. Here Paul embarked on his journey to Tarsus (Acts 9:30) and where Cornelius and his family (the first Gentile believers) lived. Caesarea is also where Pontius Pilate had his base; and where Paul embarked to Tarsus (Acts 9:30 Acts 10 24-48) and where Philip preached (Acts 8:40). Explore the restored Roman amphitheater, with its acoustic and theatrical sound. It was used for many performances throughout the centuries. Walk through the excavated fortress and view the aqueduct, once used for conveying water to the city.

Megiddo

One of King Solomon’s walled, fortified cities (1st Kings 9:15; 10:26), with the ruins of 20 levels of civilization, including the well-preserved water supply system. From here, the Books of Daniel and Revelation will come alive as we read about the final Battle of Armageddon, while viewing the Plains of Jezreel.

Haifa

Ascend Mt. Carmel for a beautiful panoramic view of Haifa Bay and the Botanical Gardens below. Here Elijah fought the 400 false prophets of Baal.

Akko – Acre

Mount of Olives

Mount of Olives is situated on the east side of the Old City. On top of the mountain, is a beautiful panoramic view of the Old City and the Golden Gates. At the bottom of the mount, is an urban garden, most famous for the site where Jesus prayed in many occasions prior to His crucifixion.

The Upper Room at Mt. Zion:

Also known as the “Room of the Last Supper”, located above David’s Tomb compound. The site of the Upper Room is believed by many was the room where Jesus had His last Passover meal, prior to His incarceration.

Jewish Quarter (Old City):

Situated is the southeastern sector of the walled city. It stretches to the Zion Gate in the south and extends to the Western Wall and the Temple Mount in the east. 

The Jewish quarter was reconstructed after the city was unified after the Six-Day War in 1967. A special point of interest in the restored Jewish Quarter is the “Cardo”, meaning the “heart” of this ancient Byzantine City. See the unearthed (main) Roman thoroughfare and the ancient marketplace lined with columns.

Western Wall:

Also known as “The Kotel”, or “The Wailing Wall” and “Temple Mount Wall”. The Western Wall is the last remaining structure after the destruction of the temple. It is considered the holiest place for Jews.

Via Dolorosa:

Also known as the “Stations of the Cross” was the pathway to Jesus’ Crucifixion. The Stations of the Cross is now home to the many colorful bazaars and merchant marketplace.

Church of the Holy Seplechre

It is believed by many Christians, this was the site of Golgotha; where Jesus was crucified and where he resurrected.

Garden Tomb:

It is also believed by many Christians, this was the site of Golgotha; where Jesus was crucified and where he resurrected.

We will return to our hotel for the remainder of the day at leisure. Enjoy dinner at our hotel.

Ascend by cable car to the legendary mountaintop plateau of Masada. Where the last stronghold of the Jewish Zealots struggled against the Romans.
