Touring Bethlehem

There are many tourist attractions in Bethlehem. Such as Church of the Nativity, St.Catherine's Church, Milk Grotto, Manger Square, Old Bethlehem, Museum, Shepherd’s Field (Beit Sahour), Mar Saba Monastery’s. Theodosius Monastery, Herodium, Solomon’s Pools, Hebron, etc. If you are on an organized tour with a travel guide, you can simply stay on the bus without any check-in general.


What to do in Bethlehem

Bethlehem’s main attraction is the Christian religious sites. While you’re here, you can take advantage of the myriad souvenir shops and restaurants as well. The popular visiting times are during Christmas and Easter times. In addition, there are some specific Orthodox holidays celebrated. Christians celebrate Jesus’ birthday on Christmas -December 25th for Catholics and Protestants; most Orthodox denominations on January 6th; and Armenian Orthodox on January 19th. Many tourists like better to accompany an organized tour to Bethlehem from Jerusalem. If you prefer to travel individually, you can easily get there from Jerusalem via cab or bus. However, if you travel to Bethlehem from Jerusalem, you’ll enjoy the view of the Judean Hills and for a point of discussion along the way; you might catch a glimpse of the graffiti art on the Security Wall.


Shopping & Restaurants

In addition to the religious draw for the town, there are many local shops and restaurants. In fact, shopping and eating are often fused since restaurants and shops have a tendency to share adjoining space. You’ll find several souvenir shops – often the same as you’d find on Ben Yehuda Street in Jerusalem – just cheaper. Most of the restaurants are fully promoting local foods, with new restaurants adding to an already rich dining scene of long-standing local favorite foods.
