Guided tour #1: Jerusalem- Bible in hand

Duration : 1 day
Level : easy Easy
Every Christian in the world has heard of Jerusalem. And in Jerusalem, who hasn’t heard of the Mount of Olives, of the Temple, of the Via Dolorosa, of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and of the Tomb of the Virgin Mary? Don’t all these places echo in your heart like a prayer, like a call to contemplation, a call to learn more? Come and discover these places with me! My tours are designed in the respect of every individual’s personal way, to allow each one to grow in his knowledge of God and in his love for Him. Every Christian pilgrimage is also a Biblical pilgrimage, even more so in Israel. Your tour here is a privileged way towards the source of life (Psalm 41), and is the promise of a unique and unforgettable experience!
I offer to guide you, Bible in hand, in the Holy Land:
- with Emperor Constantine and Saint Helen in Jerusalem: we will learn about the history of the fist Byzantine churches, built more than three hundred years after Jesus: the Church of Eleona on the Mount of Olives , the Byzantine part of the Holy Sepulcher , the Pool of Bethesda built on two large pools, the church at Siloam, and the Nea – the New Church of St. Mary , recently discovered thanks to a 6th century map found in Jordan.
- with the Crusaders in the Holy Land : come and discover Mont Joie, where the Crusaders saw Jerusalem for the first time. Enter Jerusalem through the first breach made by Godfrey of Bouillon. Visit the Holy Sepulcher renovated by Queen Melisande , an extraordinary monarch and a great builder, who ruled over the Kingdom of Jerusalem with an iron fist; discover the Saint Anne Church she built for her sister.

Voyage en Israël dont 2 jours (seulement) à Jérusalem. Cette ville est extraordinaire mais nécessite d'être visitée avec un guide.

Isabelle est super sympa et nous emmène via des passages ou des lieux par lesquels nous n'aurions jamais songé à emprunter.

La visite était agrémenté de commentaires et références historiques et/ou religieuses.
Le rythme était parfaitement dosé. C'était passionn...

All reviewsNous avons passé six heures avec Isabelle dans la vieille ville de Jérusalem et nous le regrettons amèrement. Si nous avions su à quel point cette visite serait passionnante, nul doute que nous l'aurions gardée beaucoup beaucoup plus longtemps.
Culture, gentillesse, compétence, tolérance, Isabelle mérite d'être incontournable.
Si vous voyagez en Israël, ne la ratez sous aucun prétexte et si elle... Read more...
