Learn about the popular religious sites of historic Bethlehem and Jericho. Visit the biblical home of Jesus' birth and see the Church of Nativity in Manger Square, a hub of religious activities for the city. Then explore the magnificent walled city of Jericho, reputed to be the world's oldest inhabited city.
People flock to Bethlehem from all over the world from multiple religions, to worship or just be in the presence of the city's Manger's Square, where Jesus is said to have been born. Here you see the charming Mosque of Omar, and the Church of the Nativity.
When you leave Bethlehem, make a stop at the Shepherds' Fields. Here, according to the Bible, shepherds kept watch over their flock during the time when Jesus was born.
Next, head through the Judean Desert to Jericho. The city has been inhabited continuously for longer than any other on Earth, probably due to its copious springs and lush vegetation.
Stop at the sycamore fig thought to be the site of Zacchaeus' biblical meeting with Jesus. From there, look out at the Mount of Temptation and the Mount of Ancient Jericho, where 25 ancient cities were uncovered dating back more than 11,000 years.
