Before the ceremony, see spectacular views of the Judean desert and the Jordan Valley and stop at the Chapel of Bethpage, built on the site where Jesus sent his disciples to find a donkey to ride into Jerusalem.
Journey to the Chapel of the Ascension at the Mount of Olives, joining the pilgrims at the outset of their descent to the Dominus Flevit Church. Proceed down to the Kidron Valley via the Garden of Gethsemane. Enter the Old City by the Lions' Gate.
