Bethlehem Full Day Tour Description
Our Bethlehem tour is one of the most rich in history and biblical events tours we have. After picking you up from your hotel we will head to Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus Christ, We will start our tour with the guide by visiting the Shepherd's field in the small town next to Bethlehem, Beit Sahour. There in the field we will see a small church built to mark the place where an angel came down to announce the birth of Jesus to the Shepherds. After we finish we will go to the Old City of Bethlehem, where there are two of the most famous and important churches in the holy lands. First, The Church of the Nativity where in a small cave under the church is a small star where is believed that baby Jesus was born, a guided tour will be provided to you to explain the rich history behind this important and one of the oldest churches in the world. As well as Saint Catherine's Church. Secondly we will visit yet another important church called the Milk Grotto Church. There where is believed that Mary and Saint Joseph took a rest before fleeing to Egypt after hearing about the Massacre of the Innocence.
Ending the tour in the Old City of Bethlehem we can have a short Coffee break at a local olive wood factory. We will be able to meet some local artisans and have an insight on their old craft. Then we'll continue our tour and visit King Solomon Pools & Closed Garden of Bethlehem Monastery. The monastery is believed to represent the 'garden enclosed' referenced by King Solomon's in one of the poems he wrote to his beloved.
