ISRAEL: A Special Place in Your Heart
By whichever route you approach Jerusalem, you are retracing the steps of pilgrims who have been making this journey for thousands of years..
King David's mountaintop capital is holy to the world's three monotheistic religions: Christianity, Islam and Judaism. In modern-day Jerusalem, the rich historical heritage of the holy city is interwoven with the vibrant tempo of Israel's contemporary capital.
Nowhere are the contrasts in Israel more apparent than in Jerusalem. The walls of the Old City and the malls of the New City. Roman Arches, Byzantine Moats, Crusader Walls and Ottoman Ramparts. Jerusalem is one big colorful mosaic.
It contains shrines that are holy to Christians, Moslems and Jews: the Western Wall, the Via Dolorosa, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the glistening domes of the mosques on the Temple Mount, and the Shrine of the Book that houses the 2,000 year old Dead Sea Scrolls.
The Chagall Windows at the Hadassah Medical Center and the somber Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial. Architectural gems like the Knesset and Supreme Court Building. And even a windmill! Jerusalem has something for everyone.
You can spend days on end just visiting the museums, from the Israel Museum to the Tower of David Museum, from the Biblelands Museum to the Islamic Museum. And the archeological sites will fascinate you as well.
Jerusalem offers year-round cultural festivities - music, drama and art - in the streets, in concert halls and at historical sites. Your friendly, professionally-licensed and well-trained guide from Christian Holyland Tours will make sure you have tickets to the cultural events scheduled during your visit.
Roam through the Jerusalem Forest and the Jerusalem Mountains that surround the city. Stroll along the ramparts of Jerusalem's ancient walls and throughout the scenic Sherover and Haas Promenades. Jerusalem is a dream for people who like to walk and who love seeing new places and making new friends...
ISRAEL: The Extra Dimension
There are many reasons why people are attracted to Israel from a wide variety of countries around the world. For some, it's the sun-drenched climate. For others, it's the rich variety of sites and sights -historical, archeological, religious or just plain beautiful. For still others, it's the fascinating contrast between the ancient and the modern.
But for absolutely everyone, Israel has a special hard-to-define something - an extra dimension that turns every visit into a truly memorable experience. When you visit Israel for the first time, you invariably experience an instant feeling of familiarity.
So many of the names that appear on the road signs-Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Sea of Galilee, Nazareth-have been familiar since childhood. You will also experience the special thrill of walking in the footsteps of history as you retrace the steps of Abraham 4,000 years ago, of King David 3,000 years ago, of Jesus 2,000 years ago, and of the Crusaders 1,000 years ago.
At the same time, Israel is a modern country that combines a rich, illustrious history with a well-developed tourism infrastructure. Glorious beaches, bustling cities, nature reserves, health spas, religious shrines, shopping malls, artists' colonies and concerts in the park all abound.
Located on the eastern Mediterranean, the country is served by dozens of international airlines. And once you've arrived, the compact geography enables you to get from place to place in no time at all - by car, bus, train or plane.
With a tradition of making visitors feel welcome that goes back to Abraham and Biblical times, the friendly people of Israel await you. CHRISTIAN HOLYLAND TOURS will make sure you have a superb visit. Whether you come for the sun, for the sights, for the religious shrines or for one of the hundreds of international conventions held in Israel each year, you will be captivated by this "old-new" country.
Let CHT do the planning and you can count on having a thrilling experience and a memorable trip.
