Ashdod Cruise

Ashdod Cruise
Gateway to Jerusalem
Disembarking from an MSC cruise ship at Ashdod, a modern Mediterranean port city 70 km from Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, means arriving to a modern city where skyscrapers alternate with low, white housing.

The port and your MSC cruise ship will be guarded by Givat Yonah (Hill of Jonah, 53 m.a.s.l.), which, according to tradition, is the site of the tomb of the prophet Jonah. It is sure to be simply the archaeological remains of a fortified observation point dating to 2500 years ago.

Ashdod
is the ideal stop for exciting excursions to all of Israel, starting with Jerusalem, the only city in the world that is sacred to three religious faiths. In the Old City, surrounded by a wall and divided into four quarters (the Jewish, the Armenian, the Christian, and the Muslim), you will discover the heart of the city.
Here, some of the most important sites for the three Religions of the Book are found: the Western Wall, all that remains of the Second Temple of Jerusalem; the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, sacred to Christians; and the Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount, a Muslim place of worship
