Jenin & Sebastia Tour

 

Jenin

The city of Jenin, which dates back to 2450 BC, was built by the Canaanites. The city name is derived from the gardens and orchards surrounding it, which is why today Jenin is known as the food basket of Palestine.

Highlights:

  • Sebastia / Samaria the Roman city: About 12 km northeast of Nablus is the small village of Sebastia, pop. 2600. Sebastia’s hilltop acropolis was the home of the biblical King Omri and his ill-fated family members, Ahab and Jezebel. There is evidence of at least six civilizations on the site, including significant Roman ruins.
  • Bala’ama tunnel: Located at the southern entrance of Jenin on the left-hand side, the Bala’ama Tunnel has a long history extending from the Early Bronze Age (3000 BC ) to the Ottoman period. The tunnel was originally built during the Late Bronze – Early Iron Ages and used by city residents as a safe passage to access their water source.
  • Jenin Old City: Tel Jenin, Fatima Khatoon Mosque, Jenin refugee camp and Freedom Theatre.

Meet at Bethlehem checkpoint at 8:00 am

Cost: $75/person 

Tour includes: transportation, a light lunch, and guide. Price is based on 5 participants. If the number of participants is fewer than 5, the cost will be pro-rated to equal the total price for 5 participants.
