      Jerusalem Jan 4, 2017 at 11:55 PM

      We plan to spend 6 days in Jerusalem. On two days we plan to take day tours: one to Masada, Ein Gadi and the Dead Sea; the second to Jerico, Bethlehem and Ramala. The balance of four days we intend spending as under:-
      Day 1. Sandeman’s free walking Tour.
      Day 2, 3 and 4 use the Jerusalem old city audio guide and walk around Jerusalem. Our aim is to experience the rich history of the city. However the challenge is to select such tours which optimize the experience and we get to see the maximum. In view of the time available (3 full days), we could easily take 4 or 5 such tours. Need guidance on which ones to select out of the following:-
      1. Via Dolorosa Tour (5 h 17 mins)
      2. In the footsteps of Christian Sects (5 hours 19 mins)
      3. The Temple Mount Compound (5 hours 19 mins)
      4. From Mount Zion to Jaffa Gate (3hours 10 mins)
      5. The Jewish Quarter (3 hours 12 mins)
      6. Marketplaces in the Old City (3 hours 13 mins)
      7. Ramparts Walk, Northern Section (3 hours 13 mins)
      8. Mount of Olives Tour of Churches (3 hours 12 mins)
      9. Ramparts Walk, Southern Section (3hours 13 mins)
      10. Jerusalem in the First and Second Temple Period (5hours 21 mins)
      11. Tower of David Museum of the History of Jerusalem (2 hours 35 mins).
      12. The King’s Valley (3 hours 11 mins)
      13. The Herodian Quarter (1 hour 12 mins)

    • The International Center of Mary in Nazareth

      by AULIAC Online Now Jul 22, 2013 at 1:54 AM

      Why there is not information about this Beautifull Center in your page.
      The International Center Mary of Nazareth is an attractive oasis of beauty and quiet in the middle of a bustling city
      Some of the features I like most are: the remains of a first-century house near the entrance, the chapel, and the rooftop gardens with spectacular views over the city.
      The center exists to promote a particular (RC) view of Mary, the mother of Jesus. A well-produced multimedia show in four successive theatres presents the biblical and non-biblical traditions relating to Mary.
      For most visitors, a visit to Nazareth includes little more than the Basilica of the Annunciation and a trip to Mt Precipice. Even the Greek Orthodox Church with its ancient well is often omitted.
      The people were wonderful and so giving and generous with their explanations and time. The multi media show is interesting although we are not believers.The building is lovely - dont miss the little capel on the top floor next to the beautifull garden with an amaizing view.

      opening time of The Basilica of the Annunciation on June 27 or 28?

      Hours: Daily 8:00-11:45am and 2-6pm (5pm in winter)
      Sunday and feast days: 2 pm-5:30pm (4:30pm in winter)

      Will it open on June 27? It is Sabbath. If not, will it open in the morning of June 28 (Sunday)?

      I need this information to arrange my trip agenda.

      Thank you in advance!

      by kantaji Online Now Apr 20, 2009 at 11:50 PM

      We are returning to Nazareth and the area near the Basilica of the Anunciation. Can someone remind me the address of the terrific Gelato place on the left side of the street as you are approaching the Basilica? It's several blocks away on that main street going to the Church. I would love to have a name, address, and hours...AND any info at all would be an assistance! Best!! kanta P.S. Any suggestions of vegetarian fare in that general area would be terrific as well!
