I'm planning to visit the Nativity Church in Bethlehem around August this year. I've been told that is better to arrive there the aerliest possible in the morning in order to avoid hours of line waiting to enter the church.
How early do you recommend to arrive? and most importantly, at what time can I take the first bus (Bus 21) at the Arab Bus Station in Jerusalem?
Is it possible to be in Bethlehem by 6:30 am?
My visit takes place on Shabat, does that represents a problem with schedules?Edited: 11:21 pm, May 20, 2012
