Meet a guide in the Old City and set out on foot towards Temple Mount, where the Dome of the Rock marks place where the Prophet Mohammed is believed to have ascended to heaven. Here, learn how the site is sacred in Judaism, as well, from the First Temple to the story of Abraham’s sacrifice.
Take in two other beautiful Islamic monuments—the Dome of the Chain and Al Aqsa Mosque—then continue to the Western Wall, an important pilgrimage place for Jews.
In the Christian quarter, follow the Via Dolorosa to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, retracing the route that Jesus is believed to have walked on the way to the crucifixion site. Outside the ancient walls, head to Mount Zion, the 12-century Hall of the Last Supper, and the Tomb of King David, before finishing the tour in the heart of Jerusalem’s Old City.
