  • Galilean Fishing Boat

    Galilean Fishing Boat

    A few miles north of Tiberias on the Sea of Galilee is the "Jesus Boat," a recently-discovered fishing boat dating to the 1st century A.D.

    The Galilee Boat is apparently the type of boat that was used on the Sea of Galilee for both fishing and transportation across the lake. It is likely that this sort of boat was used by Jesus and his disciples, many of whom were fishermen. Boats played a large role in Jesus life and ministry - they are mentioned 50 times in the Gospels!

    There is no evidence connecting the boat to Jesus or his disciples, but it is certainly tantalizing to think that Jesus may have seen the boat sail by out on the Sea of Galilee or even used it himself. But regardless of its history, the "Jesus boat" is a fascinating artefact that brings to life many of the Gospel accounts.

  • Via Dolorosa

    Via Dolorosa

    The Via Dolorosa "Way of Grief", "Way of Sorrows", "Way of Suffering" or simply "Painful Way" is a street, in two parts, within the Old City of Jerusalem, held to be the path that Jesus walked, carrying his cross, on the way to His crucification. Each event on His walk has a commemorating chapel. Together these chapels comprise the 14 Stations of the Cross. This journey takes you through Pilate's Judgments Hall, the Chapel of the Flagellation where Jesus was first flogged by Roman soldiers, the Ecce Homo Arch, built on the site of Pontius Pilate's mansion, where Pilate looked down upon Jesus and cried "Behold the Man" and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, marking Golgotha, also called Calvary, the site of the crucifixion.

    This winding route is of great importance to the Christian religion.

  • Great Pyramids of Giza and Sphinx

    Great Pyramids of Giza and Sphinx

    The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Necropolis, Egypt. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the only one to remain largely intact.

    The Pyramids were first constructed in the fourth dynasty in the reign of Egyptian King Khufu. Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb over a 10 to 20-year period concluding around 2560 B.C. Initially at 146.5 metres (481 feet), the Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years. Originally, the Great Pyramid was covered by casing stones that formed a smooth outer surface; what is seen today is the underlying core structure. Some of the casing stones that once covered the structure can still be seen around the base. There have been varying scientific and alternative theories about the Great Pyramid's construction techniques.

    There are three known chambers inside the Great Pyramid. The lowest chamber is cut into the bedrock upon which the pyramid was built and was unfinished. The so-called Queen's Chamber and King's Chamber are higher up within the pyramid structure. The Great Pyramid of Giza is the only pyramid in Egypt known to contain both ascending and descending passages.

DAY 02    |    

Amman - Tiberias

Today after breakfast, proceed for an orientation tour of Amman. The capital of Jordan is a modern city with numerous ancient ruins.

Then, visit to Madaba and Mount Nebo. The trip south of Amman along the 5,000 years old King's Highway is one of the most memorable journeys in the Holy Land, passing through a string of ancient sites. The first city along the way from the north is Madaba, "the City of Mosaics" which has been intermittently inhabited for nearly 3,500 years.

The main attraction of this city is a wonderfully vivid, six-century Byzantine mosaic map showing Jerusalem and other holy sites; there are also literally hundreds of other mosaics scattered throughout Madaba's churches and homes. Continue thereafter to visit Mount Nebo, the memorial of Moses, and the presumed site of the prophet's death and burial. Mount Nebo, commands a spectacular view across the Jordan Valley and the Dead Sea.

Overnight in Amman.

Breakfast at the hotel, lunch and dinner at a local restaurant.

    A few miles north of Tiberias on the Sea of Galilee is the "Jesus Boat," a recently-discovered fishing boat dating to the 1st century A.D.

    The Galilee Boat is apparently the type of boat that was used on the Sea of Galilee for both fishing and transportation across the lake. It is likely that this sort of boat was used by Jesus and his disciples, many of whom were fishermen. Boats played a large role in Jesus life and ministry - they are mentioned 50 times in the Gospels!

    There is no evidence connecting the boat to Jesus or his disciples, but it is certainly tantalizing to think that Jesus may have seen the boat sail by out on the Sea of Galilee or even used it himself. But regardless of its history, the "Jesus boat" is a fascinating artefact that brings to life many of the Gospel accounts.

  • Via Dolorosa

    Via Dolorosa

    The Via Dolorosa "Way of Grief", "Way of Sorrows", "Way of Suffering" or simply "Painful Way" is a street, in two parts, within the Old City of Jerusalem, held to be the path that Jesus walked, carrying his cross, on the way to His crucification. Each event on His walk has a commemorating chapel. Together these chapels comprise the 14 Stations of the Cross. This journey takes you through Pilate's Judgments Hall, the Chapel of the Flagellation where Jesus was first flogged by Roman soldiers, the Ecce Homo Arch, built on the site of Pontius Pilate's mansion, where Pilate looked down upon Jesus and cried "Behold the Man" and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, marking Golgotha, also called Calvary, the site of the crucifixion.

    This winding route is of great importance to the Christian religion.

  • Great Pyramids of Giza and Sphinx

    Great Pyramids of Giza and Sphinx

    The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Necropolis, Egypt. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the only one to remain largely intact.

    The Pyramids were first constructed in the fourth dynasty in the reign of Egyptian King Khufu. Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb over a 10 to 20-year period concluding around 2560 B.C. Initially at 146.5 metres (481 feet), the Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years. Originally, the Great Pyramid was covered by casing stones that formed a smooth outer surface; what is seen today is the underlying core structure. Some of the casing stones that once covered the structure can still be seen around the base. There have been varying scientific and alternative theories about the Great Pyramid's construction techniques.

    There are three known chambers inside the Great Pyramid. The lowest chamber is cut into the bedrock upon which the pyramid was built and was unfinished. The so-called Queen's Chamber and King's Chamber are higher up within the pyramid structure. The Great Pyramid of Giza is the only pyramid in Egypt known to contain both ascending and descending passages.
