We will stop next to the famous “Graffiti wall” which is known as the Israeli West Bank barrier and recognized as a symbol of the Israeli – Palestinian conflict for some picture taking. Continue for light refreshment at a Christian owned local souvenir shop where the shop’s owners & staff will be happy to share the experiences of Christian Palestinians living in the City of Bethlehem. Our next stop will be the Church of Nativity – the birthplace of Jesus. This church is the oldest existing church where services were held continuously since St. Helen built the first church in the 4th century. We shall continue to the Milk Grotto church where Mary fed her son. We will have an authentic lunch (included) at the Grotto Restaurant where we can explore unique traditional baking of the authentic Pita bread. After the tasty lunch, we will visit of the Shepherd Fieldslocated in Beth Sahur. We will finish our day exploring the Cremisan Cellars, a Christian owned winery– located just 5 KM from Bethlehem & 12 KM from Jerusalem, just on the border between Israel & the West Bank. Time to explore the wine-producing systems and the opportunity to purchase local wines before driving back to our hotel in Jerusalem.
