About the ride
Get picked up from the central Tel Aviv and travel in your private air-conditioned car with free WiFi to the biblical city of Jerusalem.
The trip will begin with a breathtaking view of Jerusalem. As if in the palm of our hand, you will see the Old City and the Temple Mount area and imagine the Second Temple destroyed in 70 CE and Solomon’s Temple before that, destroyed in 586 BCE.
As we drive along the Kidron Valley you will see a fascinating view of Mount Olives, the Garden of Gethsemane and the Church of All Nations as well as of the monumental ancient Jewish burial tombs. We enter the Old City through from Mt. Zion, passing the Armenian Quarter to the excavated Byzantine Cardo. Although this fifteen hundred-year-old main street of Jerusalem was partially destroyed and unused during the Moslem conquest it had a brief new lease of life during the Crusader period and the excavated Crusader shops are now modern stores.
Continuing through the Jewish Quarter we proceed to the Western Wall (Kotel). This two-thousand-year-old wall is part of the encircling and supporting wall built by King Herod when of the Temple Mount area was enlarged.
