Mount of Olives, Jerusalem
(4.7/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
Featuring prominently in the New Testament, Mount of Olives serves as­­ a site of religious pilgrimage for Jews and Christians alike. Jewish scripture identifies the mountain as King David's escape route from Absalom and the site of some of Jesus' prophesies. Much of the mountain serves as a Jewish cemetery for important figures, as many believe Messiah will first return to this spot and resurrects the Jews buried there. Visit the many pilgrimage stops on the mountain, such as the teardrop-shaped modernist Franciscan church. Put Mount of Olives at the forefront of your travel plans using our Jerusalem itinerary maker.
