And if you stay in a vacation apartment Jerusalem old city in or near the Old City, then you are in walking distance from many popular holy sites (although many vacation apartments Jerusalem rental in this area are very expensive and might be a bit dilapidated – however, you can find really good prices here!). One particularly very popular site for Christians that you find in every single one of the Christian tours of the Holy Land is at the Mount of Olives: Jesus at the Garden of Gethsemane. Gethsemane is a garden at the bottom of the Mount of Olives and is a very holy place in Christianity for many reasons. First, it is where Jesus and his twelve disciples prayed to G-d at night a few hours before his crucifixion. There are, incredibly, olive trees that are growing there that are around 900 to 2000 years old! This estimation is, of course, only an estimate because olive trees do not have rings and therefore it is impossible to know the exact age. However, scholars agree that these olive trees growing on the Mount of Olives are definitely ancient. If the holiness of the Mount of Olives is not tangible enough for you, perhaps seeing these ancient trees will help you connect to a time long ago.
Other holy Christian sites on the Mount of Olives, which can be quite close to a vacation rental Jerusalem Israel rental, are the Dome of the Ascension (which is said to be where Jesus ascended into the heavens; it was conquered by Saladin in 1187 and converted into a mosque, which is what remains in the churches place even today), the Church of Mary Magdalene (built in 1888), and Dominus Flevit Church (the most recent addition to the Mount of Olives, built in 1955 to memorialize when Jesus cried over Jerusalem). When the Dominus Flevit Church was built, they excavated several ossuaries (which are some kind of container for skeletal remains) that were from the time of Jesus!
