Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Dead Sea Region, Dead Sea Region

Stop on Dead Sea shore for 1.5 hour bathing.

The Dead Sea (Israel) is a miracle of nature, an amazing phenomenon that has caused great interest of researchers since ancient times. On the world map, it is located at the junction of Africa and Eurasia, on the territory of two states – Israel and Jordan.

And in fact, this is of course not the sea, but a huge lake, since it has no drains. And the only river flowing into it is the Jordan River.

The Sea is 67 km long, 18 km wide and 300 meters deep, but this is today. It is constantly changing. Now it is 430 m below sea level, but every year it “carries away” an average of one meter.

How was this “sea” formed? Scientists believe that this happened in the Pleistocene era, in the intercontinental basin as a result of the drying up of the sea in one of the areas of the fault. The southern shallow area of the lake (the one that separates from the other Lashon peninsula) probably appeared later after the earthquake.


Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Church of the Nativity, Manger Square .15 minutes walking from bus 231, Bethlehem Palestinian Territories

Church of the Nativity.
Basilica of the Nativity – the first Christian Temple in the Holy Land at the birthplace of the Lord Son Jesus. One of the most important relics of Christianity, along with the temples above Calvary and the Holy Sepulcher, Church of All Nations, Garden of Gethsemane and Nazareth.

The Grotto of the Nativity is located in the underground crypt, in its northern part, where two staircases made of ashlar stone lead. The crypt and grotto of Nativity are decorated with white marble. The walls are decorated with draperies and icons. The simple mesh nurseries in which Virgin Mary placed the Jesus are always illuminated by lamps. Opposite the manger is the altar of Adoration of the Magi.

A city where Christmas is always.
Bethlehem is small city. Provincial and also strangled by the Arab-Israeli conflict. City lives at the expense of tourists and pilgrims. Who seek to get there not only during the Christmas holidays, but just to see the famous Basilica with their own eyes.

At the time of the birth of the Messiah, it was a small settlement where folk lived a simple village life. Bethlehem names both Aramaic and Arabic, testify to the peasant labor of the local inhabitants. The first tells of growing bread, the second of raising livestock.
