My wife and I are on a cruise that docks in Ashdod this October 25th(2012) for a short two day visit and we would like to follow the previous advice on here, catch the shuttle from the ship to the ashdod bus station and then to Jerusalem,city bus or light rail? to the old city, and we hope to see some of the well known christian sites.
The thing is- we would also like to visit Bethlehem for the same
reason. Hopefully on the same day.
What do we need to do? Can we get a taxi from Jerusalem
that will take us there?
