Total Hunt Time
About 3 to 4 hours, depending on options selected
A treasure hunt is often characterized by people “searching for clues through a labyrinth of interesting and historic streets and alleys.” With this definition in mind, consider Jerusalem’s Old City the ultimate treasure hunt location! In many ways, history began here in the Old City. For thirty centuries, a vast array of people has battled for these “holy” grounds, including Hebrews, Persians, Romans, Arabs, Western Crusaders, Ayyubids, Mamluks, and the Ottoman Turks. Events central to the traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are believed to have taken place within these walls-and today it’s still astounding how “close” everything seems; a 10-minutes’ walk literally takes you from the Church of the Holy Sepulchre to the Western Wall to the Dome of the Rock. Your Old City treasure hunt will focus primarily on the Armenian and Jewish Quarters. Expect to see an Old Syrian church, perhaps the first of its kind; musical instruments preserved in tile; a model of the Third Temple; a mosaic of Jerusalem hidden in a tunnel; and wall and column fragments from over 2000 years ago. This treasure hunt truly is a walk through time.
