We visit the Mount of Olives, discover the Old City of Jerusalem and the pilgrimage sites around Bethlehem. You will also encounter the Jordan River Valley, Jerash and Mount Nebo. Visit Petra, one of the 7 New Wonders of the World and sleep at a Bedouin campsite! Then go on a desert safari, visit Jericho, see a real oasis and the Dead Sea.

By their side, the bustling bazaars of Istanbul unfold before your eyes, the battlefields of Gallipoli provide a place for solemn remembrance, and the natural landscapes of Cappadocia are a sight to behold.
