Via Dolorosa – Accessible Audio Walking Tour in the Old City of Jerusalem

A tour along the Via Dolorosa – וִיה דולורוזה in the Old City

Time of tour: 4 to 6 hours

Jesus came to Jerusalem on the eve of Passover, accompanied by his disciples. The events that took place during the week following his arrival in the city until his crucifixion and resurrection have become the foundations of the Christian faith.
After eating with his disciples (“the Last Supper”) Jesus went to Gethsemane. It is here that he was caught, handed over to the Romans and sentenced to die on the cross. The path Jesus walked from the place of his judgment to the site of his crucifixion is sacred in Christianity and is known as the “Via Dolorosa” – the Way of Suffering. Fourteen stations along this path signify events that are mentioned in the New Testament and later Christian tradition, and various Christian sects emphasize certain traditions and stations over others.
The tour starts at the Lion’s gate and ends at the church of the holy sepulcher. Highlights include: St. Anna’s, The Church of St. Alexander Nievski and the church of the holy sepulcher.
