What You Can Expect

Little Town of Bethlehem Half Day Trip from Jerusalem

Little town of Bethlehem Half Day Tour from Jerusalem

Your day tour begins with an air-conditioned drive south-east from Jerusalem to the holy city of Bethlehem. Focusing on the Nativity, your visit begins at the Church of the Nativity - widely cited as the birthplace of Christ, and one of the oldest surviving Christian churches in the world.

The hub of religious activity in Bethlehem is Manger Square which is flanked by the Church of the Nativity and also the Mosque of Oman - a site of importance for the many Muslims who live in the city.

At the Manger Square you can walk on the ground where Jesus was laid down after his birth, and go on to explore the Milk Grotto. Here you will notice the white color of the chalk walls, which tradition states was caused by a drop of milk that fell while Mary was feeding the baby Jesus.

Visit the Greek and Catholic churches, before moving onto the Shepherd Fields where the 'shepherds watched their flocks by night'. Returning by air-conditioned coach to Jerusalem, you'll take home special memories of your visit to this must-see Holy Land city.
