Highlights

  • First, we will drive from Jerusalem to the Acropolis of Herodium.
  • There, we will visit the Excavation of the ancient Palace of Herod the Great and his Tomb.
  • After the Herodium, we will stop at one of the oldest churches in the world, where it all began; The Church of the Nativity, the birthplace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We will walk through Manger Square and stroll through the fields where the shepherds saw their guiding star of the Nativity.
  • At the end of the day, we will return to Jerusalem.

We begin our Bethlehem Tour with a visit to the Herodium located about 3 miles from Bethlehem.

The Roman client king of Judea, Herod the Great, has built this Ancient acropolis sometime around 40 BCE. After the Parthian conquest of Syria, Herod fled to Masada.

We will visit the Herodium Excavation of Herod’s Palace and the place which archaeologists recognize as Herod’s tomb. It is a place full of History and stories – fascinating for every History lover.

After finishing our visit to the Herodium, we will begin our drive towards Bethlehem, passing through the Israel-Palestinian Border Checkpoint.
After approximately 35 minutes’ drive, we will be in the birthplace of Jesus Christ, the Town of Bethlehem.

According to the old testament, Rehoboam – King of Judah, built the city of Bethlehem as a fortified city.
Upon our arrival, we will visit the Church of Nativity which is located in Jesus’ Birthplace. In 2012 UNESCO designated the church as a World Heritage Site.

After finishing our visitation to the church, we will continue with our Bethlehem Tour to Manger Square. Manger Square is a city square located in the center of Bethlehem. The Square is named after the manger where Jesus was born.

In addition, during our visit to Bethlehem, you will have some free time to enjoy the city’s local restaurants and shops.
