Jerusalem has been fought over for thousands of years and many battles have taken place there. The city is considered very holy because of three major religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The Cenacle is on Mount Zion and is said to be the place that Jesus had his last supper. In the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, there is the Golgotha where Jesus was crucified.
The Church of the Holy Sepulchre was built in the 2nd Century A.D. on top of the cave where Jesus was buried. Renovations were only completed in 1997.
You will start your tour with a view of Jerusalem where you will see the Old City and the Temple Mount. Then you will drive along the Kidron Valley and see the view of the Mount of Olives, the ancient Jewish burial grounds, the Garden of Gethsemane, and the Church of all Nations. On Mount Zion is where you fill find the Tomb of David. From the Zion gate you will enter the Old City, past the Armenian Quarter to the excavated Byzantine Cardo.
