Day 2- 2/21/23 
Along the coast

Depart from Tel-Aviv and head to the ancient city of Caesarea, built by Herod the Great in honor of Augustus Caesar. We will visit the site of Paul's imprisonment, the Roman theatre, aqueducts, and the Hippodrome. All serve as a backdrop for the events chronicled in the Book of Acts. We will also visit Mount Carmel and Haifa, a city known for the beauty and symmetry of the majestic Bahá'í Gardens- one of the main worship sites for followers of the Bahá'í religion worldwide, as well as its example as a beacon of religious pluralism.


Further north still, Acre sprawls out by the shore, its bustling bazaar swirling with the smells of spices and fresh fish, built atop the former Crusader stronghold that centuries later would be the last barrier stopping Napoleon from achieving his goal of conquest. In Acre, we will visit the market, the underground Crusader Halls and the El - Jazar Mosque - one of the largest in Israel.

Overnight- Galilee


Day 3- 2/22/23 
Explore Nazareth and Cana

The third day of the tour is a full day in Nazareth and Cana. We will start the day with a visit to Mount Prefepice- a wonderful lookout over the Jezreel valley. 

We will visit the Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation, followed by a short walk through the quaint Nazareth Market. We will visit the Synagogue where Jesus preached and was rejected by the locals. We’ll sit down with a local shopkeeper who will demonstrate Middle Eastern traditions and cultures through word and song. After crossing the market we will visit the breathtaking Catholic church of Annunciation where we’ll enjoy the unique architecture and the archeological excavations.

The Holy City of Jerusalem  

We will visit the must-see sites such as the Western Wall and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, but we will also discover the modern, small moments of humanity that represent the Old City in the present day, such as the small coffee shops only locals would know. The tour will include visits to all four quarters of the Old City: Muslim, Christian, Jewish, and Armenian, each unique from the other in its content and feel.

Overnight- Jerusalem


Day 10- 3/1/23
The modern city of Jerusalem

Over the 150 years of its modern history, Jerusalem has been developed and ruled over by a variety of different groups including the Ottoman Empire, the colonial British Mandate, the Palestinian elite, the Israeli government and more. Each competing force desired to leave its stamp on the appearance and atmosphere of modern Jerusalem.


We will start the day, with a guided tour of the "Yad Vashem" Holocaust museum. Afterward, head to the Machne Yahuda Market for lunch and a culinary tour. 


After lunch, visit the Israel Museum, home to the shrine that protects the Dead Sea Scrolls, as well as a treasure trove of archaeological, anthropological, and cultural art and relics.
