Much of the confusing, complex tapestry of Christianity in the Holy land will be viewed up close in this amazing site. I recommend some variation of the Abraham Tours but there are many worthy ways to tour it.

Hot, tight, noisy setting with lots of tourists. Glad I saw it, don't need to do it again. Read up on it beforehand. The battles between the different denominations is interesting.
