No words to express the feeling, I am not religious but this places has different energy, you feel grateful with the opportunity to be there

Half day tour to Bethlehem from Jerusalem was amazing. Church of the Nativity was an amazing experience and hard to actually put into words especially for Christians. A visit not to be missed. This is the oldest church in the world, that is actually still being used as a church.

We visited in late November and there were queues to see the birthplace of Jesus. The site of the nativity is essentially a crypt of the Church of the Nativity. The problem is that large numbers are funnelled to a single stone staircase which is quite tricky to negotiate. There is also a lot of shoving so be prepared. When you get to the grotto there is a star representing where Jesus was born and you may be able to touch this before you are ushered out. This is the reason so many visit Bethlehem which is perhaps the most important Christian site. Five stars for spirituality - 3 stars for overall experience.
