What to expect

This tour is a great opportunity to explore the city with a an expert guide. Your first stop is one of the oldest churches in the world, where it all began: the Church of the Nativity, the birthplace of Jesus. A huge church with a long history, where you will be able to see the various chapels of the Catholic, Armenian and Greek Orthodox Christians. Afterwards, you will visit the Franciscan Grotto of the Lady Mary and learn how the 'Milk Grotto' got its name. A large underground cave with a Franciscan chapel built directly on top; this is the site where it is believed that Mary and Joseph took Jesus for refuge from King Herod, before fleeing across the holy land to Egypt. The final stop for the day is at the Shepherd's fields on the outskirts of the city. Believed to be the location where the Shepherds sited the Star of Nativity before venturing to visit Jesus, these fields hold a number of stunning shrines and a beautiful chapel, drawing pilgrims from around the world.
