Holy Land Discovery - Faith-based Travel

Day 1 - Arrive in Tel Aviv, Israel. Welcome to Israel! Check into your hotel and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure. This evening, meet your Tour Director and fellow travelers.
Day 2 - Tel Aviv - Jaffa - Caesarea - Megiddo - Muhraqa - Haifa-Nazareth. Enjoy a full day exploring some of the Holy Land's ancient biblical and modern sights. Begin by driving to the old port of Jaffa, an atmospheric town where Jonah set sail before he was swallowed by the whale. Continue to CAESAREA, an ancient port turned incredible ARCHAEOLOGICAL ZONE. Built by Herod the Great in the 1st century BC, the city was one of the most splendid in ancient Palestine and its capital for more than 600 years. Admire what remains of Herod's grandiose building works, including the restored 3,500-seat Roman theater, the aqueduct, harbor, and the crumbled moat and towers from the 12th-century CRUSADER FORTRESS. From here, travel to the archaeological site of MEGIDDO, an age-old FORTIFIED TOWN and one of the world's most important biblical sites. According to the New Testament, this is where the Battle of Armageddon will take place, the final struggle between good and evil, which will prompt the return of Jesus to defeat the Antichrist and cast Satan into the abyss. Next, visit MUHRAQA on Mount Carmel. Here, a 17th-century MONASTERY marks where the prophet Elijah confronted the prophets of Baal. Then, visit Haifa, a city dating back to biblical times, before reaching Nazareth, where you will spend the next three nights. (B,D)
Day 3 - Nazareth. Excursion To Mount Of Beatitudes - Capernaum - Sea Of Galilee - Tabgha - Jordan River. Today, travel to the Sea of Galilee, stopping en route to visit the MOUNT OF BEATITUDES, where Jesus delivered his Sermon on the Mount, and attend Mass, if you like. Next, Capernaum, home to the apostles Peter, Andrew, James, and John, and Matthew the tax collector. While here, see its ANCIENT SYNAGOGUE and the HOUSE OF ST. PETER, then head for Tabgha, where Jesus fed the 5,000 with two fish and five loaves. View the church commemorating the miracle, and stop at the BAPTISMAL SITE at Qasr el Yahud on the Jordan River. (B,D)
Day 4 - Nazareth. Excursion to Cana of Galilee & Bet She'an. This morning, visit the CHURCH OF THE ANNUNCIATION, where the Archangel Gabriel told Mary she would conceive and give birth to Jesus, the Son of God. Attend [M] Mass at St. Joseph's Church or the Church of the Annunciation. Then, head for CANA OF GALILEE, where Jesus turned water into wine at a wedding feast. Stop at GIDEON'S SPRING, where Gideon tested his army so he could decide who would join him in battle against the Midianites. Then, visit BET SHE'AN, one of the world's best-preserved Roman cities. Ongoing excavations at this UNESCO World Heritage Site have revealed time-worn colonnaded streets, bathhouses, and theaters. Later, participate in a satisfying hands-on afternoon of volunteer work at the NAZARETH TRUST. (B)
Day 5 - Nazareth - Jericho - Bethlehem - Jerusalem. Drive through the Jordan Valley and visit Jericho, where the shouts and trumpet blasts of Joshua and his army caused the city fortifications to crumble. Continue to Bethlehem, birthplace of Jesus and King David. Visit one of Christianity's holiest places, the CHURCH OF THE NATIVITY, built over the cave thought to be the spot where Jesus was born. Here, you will have time to pray and attend Mass, if you like. Reach the holy city of Jerusalem in the late afternoon. (B,D)
Day 6 - Jerusalem. An intense day of reflection awaits as you set off on a walking tour of Jerusalem's Old Town. From the MOUNT OF OLIVES, take in memorable views over the city's domes, walls, and rooftops before strolling in the GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE, where Jesus prayed on the night before his arrest. Your guide will then lead you into the JEWISH QUARTER, pointing out the WESTERN WALL with its prayer notes tucked between the stones, and the Dome of the Rock, the gold-topped mosque on Temple Mount. Next, walk the famous Via Dolorosa (Way of the Cross), following in Jesus' footsteps as he bore the cross to Calvary for his crucifixion and burial, where the BASILICA OF THE HOLY SEPULCHRE now stands. Later this afternoon, attend Mass, if you like. (B)
Day 7 - Jerusalem. Optional Excursion to Masada & The Dead Sea. Today is free to relax, explore Jerusalem at leisure, revisit some of the most significant places of worship, or join an exciting optional excursion to the Dead Sea, the planet's lowest point on dry land. Travel through the mountainous Judean Desert; pass the Qumran Caves, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered; then, ride the cable car up to the magnificent Fortress of Masada. The fortification, perched high on a clifftop plateau above the Dead Sea, was where 960 Jewish rebels made their last stand against Roman forces in 73 AD. Later, head for the shores of the Dead Sea, where you'll have plenty of time to experience the incredible buoyancy in the saltwater. Toward the end of the afternoon, return to Jerusalem. (B,D)
Day 8 - Jerusalem. Your vacation ends with breakfast this morning (nearest airport is Tel Aviv). (B)
