Tour detailed itinerary

Christmas in Bethlehem’s Manger Square is one of the most iconic settings in the world for celebrating Christmas Eve. Bethlehem, the Palestinian town in which Jesus was born, is located in the West Bank, just a few minutes south of Jerusalem, and whilst entering the Church of the Nativity is not possible, watching the performances on the large stage in Manger Square, as well as other surrounding activities, complete with soaking in the unique Christmas atmosphere, is a very strong experience. Every Christmas Eve, a number of group tours are available, and joining one of these is recommended to maximize your Bethlehem Christmas Experience.

After picking-up from hotels, stop at Mount Scopus for a magnificent and breathtaking view of the Old and New cities illuminated.

Drive through the New City passing by the Knesset, Israel’s parliament house and the Israel museum.

Enter the Old City through Jaffa Gate and the local bazaar for a brief visit to the Church of Holy Sepulchre.

At around 20:00, proceed to the city of Bethlehem, birthplace of Jesus. Short stop in a souvenir store for tea, coffee and shopping. 

Walk through Manger Square enjoying the festive Christmas decorations Illuminating  the city’s main square and the Church of Nativity.

Stop at a local restaurant specially decorated for the holidays and enjoy a festive Christmas dinner (wine & soft drinks included); Watch the Midnight Mass broadcasted live on TV; If mass is  broadcasted on screens at Manger Square (subject to Palestinian authority’s approval) proceed to the spot.

After Mass return to the meeting point with our representative and drive back to Jerusalem, Tel Aviv or Herzliya. Return transfer to pickup point after the tour.
