Day 2: Arrive in Tel Aviv

Unpack & Relax

You will be transported to your hotel to unpack, relax, and have dinner.

Day 3: Caesarea | Stella Maris | Nazareth | Tiberias

The Annunciation

See the impressive archaeological remains of Caesarea. Then visit the Carmelite monastery Stella Maris and view the Bay of Acco. We will drive to Nazareth to visit Mary’s Well and the Church of St. Joseph. It was at Mary’s Well that the Angel Gabriel asked Mary to be the mother of the Son of God. We will end the day with dinner in Tiberias.

Day 4: Tiberias | Sea of Galilee | Magdala | Capernaum

Jesus Begins His Ministry

Take a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee. Visit the Mount of Beatitudes where Jesus delivered his Sermon on the Mount. Close by is where Jesus fed the 5,000 with five loaves and two fish. Visit Magdala, the birthplace of Mary Magdalene, and then head to Capernaum to see the synagogue where Jesus taught and gave his sermon on the Bread of Life. Enjoy dinner at your hotel.

Day 5: Mount Tabor | Jericho | Jordan River | Jerusalem

The Transfiguration

Celebrate Mass at Mount Tabor (the site of the Transfiguration), and spend time reflecting on this mystery. Then we will drive down the Jordan Valley to Jericho to see the Mount of Temptation. After visiting Jesus’ baptismal site in the Jordan River, we will head to Jerusalem for dinner and overnight.

Day 6: Jerusalem | Ein Karem | Bethlehem

The Visitation & The Nativity

Visit a model of the Second Temple and then take a short drive to Ein Karem, the picturesque village where Mary visited her cousin Elizabeth who was pregnant with John the Baptist. Here we will visit the Church of the Visitation. In the afternoon we will go to Bethlehem to see the caves at Shepherds’ Field and to celebrate Mass in the Church of the Nativity, which marks the spot of Jesus’ birth. Dinner will be at the hotel.

Day 7: Dead Sea | Bethany

Raising Lazarus from the Dead

Take a morning drive down the Jordan Valley to Qumran, the site where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. Take a dip in the Dead Sea before driving through the desert—the same desert where Jesus fasted for forty days. We will end our excursion with Mass in Bethany, the village where Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead. Enjoy dinner at your hotel.

Day 8: Jerusalem

Palm Sunday & The Agony in the Garden

Starting at the Mount of Olives, walk down the path Jesus walked to Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. Along the way, stop at the Church of the Pater Noster. Walk through the Garden of Gethsemane and pray in the Church of All Nations, built over the “Rock of Agony.” Celebrate Mass at the Church of St. Peter Gallicantu, and go up to Mount Zion to see the Upper Room. Dinner will be at the hotel.

Day 9: Jerusalem | Via Dolorosa | Holy Sepulchre

The Way of the Cross

Beginning at the place where Pontius Pilate condemned Jesus to death, follow the Via Dolorosa (“Way of Grief”) to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which marks the site of both the Crucifixion and Jesus’ tomb. After celebrating Mass, visit the Church of St. Anne and the Pool of Bethesda. Explore the Old City of Jerusalem before going back to the hotel for dinner.

Day 10: Depart Tel Aviv

Revel in the Memories

If your flight is in the morning, you will be transported to the airport after breakfast. If your flight is in the late evening, you will have a late checkout from the hotel. Feel free to spend the morning at your own leisure. Meet back at the hotel in the afternoon and wish everyone “shalom” as you are transported to the airport for your flight(s) home.
