Begin the day by ascending Mount Scopus meaning in Hebrew, "Hatzofim" - to look over. Here, many a battle in defense of the Holy City was fought. Today, this majestic mountain is the site of the Hebrew University and the Hadassah Hospital. Hear an explanation of the historical and geographical importance of what you see before you.

We will drive around the walled old city of Jerusalem and recount the stories of the various gates.

Enter through one of the famous gates and walk through the Old City, the axis around which the three great monotheistic religions revolve.

We will stop at the New Davidson Center – the newly opened visitors’ center, located at the Jerusalem Archaeological Park. Guests visiting the center are able to learn, through ultra-modern audio visual presentations and other super high-tech mediums (at an extra cost) about 5000 years of archaeology history.

Take time for a moment's prayer at the holy Western Wall, and follow the tradition of many from around the world that placed their prayers in the cracks of the wall.

Near the Western Wall view the archaeological discoveries excavated in a vast, concealed tunnel along the Western Wall . Inside, a most interesting model shows the different dwelling periods and history of the inhabitants of Jerusalem. Digging at this site exposed a continuous historical chain wrought in stone, stretching from the Hasmonean era till our time. The wall, almost 448 meters long, has one stone reaching the weight of close to 570 tons. About 2,000 square meters of rooms and public halls were discovered, as well as a section of the Second Temple road, a Hasmonean water tunnel, a pool and many other finds. Stand on the site believed to be the nearest spot to the "Holy of Holies". Tour the Jewish Quarter that was reconstructed after the city was unified at the conclusion of the Six-Day War in 1967. A special point of interest in the restored Jewish Quarter is the "Cardo", meaning the "heart" of this ancient Byzantine City. View the unearthed main Roman thoroughfare and ancient marketplace lined with columns.
