Highlights of the Palestinian Territories
Join a local Palestinian guide as you wander through the timeworn streets of Jericho, one of the oldest cities in the world and the first city to fly the Palestinian state flag. From here, you can ascend the Mount of Temptation by cable car and visit its Greek Orthodox monastery cut into the mountain side where Jesus is said to have been tempted by the devil during his forty-day fast. Vast views reach over the city streets, and the desert plains of the West Bank disappear into the horizon.
Visit the biblical birthplace of Jesus Christ and the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. Our local Palestinian guide will lead us around the city's holy streets and show us all of the key highlights, including the Chapel of the Milk Grotto - said to be where the Virgin Mary, Saint Joseph and Jesus Christ took refuge during the Massacre of the Innocents - and the Shepherds' Field Chapel - where it's believed angels first announced the birth of Christ.
