After bus trip you’ll be glad to stretch your legs in walking in Bethlehem. Here we’ll provide excursion in the Church of Nativity – as tradition says this was the place of Jesus birth. Its main entrance – The Door of Humility – will put you in a special atmosphere of peacefulness. In the morning the sun brings brightness to Church’s mosaics, stained glass windows, columns and halls. The Church is really very spiritual and beautiful place and its architecture and mood will impress everybody even if you are not close to the God.

To it they turn during the prayer. From the Western Wall we will go by the Way of Sorrows (Via Dolorosa) – the last way of Jesus to the place of his crucifixion. Here the Church of Holy Sepulcher is located. The last five stations of Via Dolorosa are within the church. Here also the places where Christ was anointed, buried and where he resurrected.
