One of the most important cities for Christians, Jews, and Muslims, Jerusalem is an enchanting and spiritual city that encourages keeping an open mind. Each year, Christian tourists, including Egyptian Copt, Armenian, and Syrian visitors, make a pilgrimage to the city to walk in the final footsteps of Jesus. The most famous procession, on Good Friday, follows the fateful path along the Via Dolorosa through the Old City—the Way of the Cross. As part of your trip, make sure to visit the city of Bethlehem, where Jesus was born.
