Spend time in the room of the Last Supper where you can pray and imagine the Passover meal that the disciples took part in. Then enter the Old City and continue through the newly rebuilt Jewish Quarter and the 1st Century Roman Cardo to visit the Western Wall (Wailing Wall) – the holiest place for the Jews.

    Walk along the Stations of the Cross (via Dolorosa), begin at the Antonia Fortress, believed to be the spot where Jesus was condemned to death by Pontius Pilate (John 18:28-19:16).
