History & Mystery of The Middle East
Experience the Middle East—with its rich history and diverse cultures—and see the remarkable structures and sacred spots where ancient civilizations once thrived. Israel, birthplace of three of the world’s largest religions—Judaism, Islam, and Christianity—has been a pilgrimage center for people throughout the ages and is a treasure trove of biblical sites.
Walk by faith and by sight in the Holy Land of Israel and Jordan. Visit the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth, the Church of the Nativity, and the baptismal site at the River Jordan. See the birthplace of Jesus in Bethlehem, the Mount of Beatitudes, and the Garden of Gethsemane in Jerusalem. Visit Cana, where water turned into wine, and enter the Upper Room where Jesus and his disciples shared the Last Supper.
