While enjoying the drive through the Judean desert getting a view for the Good Samaritan Inn, the Mosaic Museum, you will have a short stop at sea level for a panoramic view and then continue towards Jericho. It is the oldest city in the world, in fact, according to the archaeologists, the first settlement dates back to 11,000 years ago. See Zacchaeus' Sycamore tree, the tree that was climbed by Zacchaeus, a tax collector for the Roman Empire thus dislikes from the Jewish, who wanted to see Jesus when he first entered the town.
