Spectacular Light Show and Middle Eastern Dinner Join us for an unforgettable night out: hear the story of Jerusalem at a spectacular light show at the Tower of David, followed by a delicious Middle Eastern dinner. The Tower of David is an ancient citadel, near the Jaffa Gate, entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem. Built to strengthen a strategically weak point in the Old City's defenses, during the second century BCE, it was subsequently destroyed and rebuilt by, Christian, Muslim, Mamluk, and Ottoman conquerors of Jerusalem. It contains important archeological finds dating back 2,700 years. When the sun sets and dusk embraces the ancient stones, the walls of the Citadel serve as the backdrop for an evening performance in sight and sound. Amidst the archaeological remains in the Citadel's courtyard and to the sound of original music, the story of Jerusalem unfolds through giant, breathtaking, virtual reality images. The Night Spectacular uses "trompe l'oeil" technology, the stones of the walls and structures fade into the scenes and the screened images envelop the viewers and whisk them off to a one-of-a-kind multi-sensory experience. Finish the evening perfectly with dinner at a Middle Eastern oriented restaurant in the city.

Excursion to Little Petra Enjoy a guided excursion to Little Petra or Al Beidha. Only a few miles from Petra, it was once a commercial area and on the trade route to the north and northwest. After passing the narrow cleft in the rock that forms its entrance too narrow for laden camels to passim opens into three natural courtyards. Admire the fa├žades and cisterns, interspersed with steps, some of which lead to holy places on the summits. One of the rooms is unique for its early 1st-century AD frescoed ceiling.
