The lines are always long, but check the times the Church of the Holy Sepulcher is open, go early before breakfast to see the final stations of the cross and visit the tomb itself with the fewest other visitors. If possible view the Nat Geo...More

This was very crowded and difficult to get to all of the stations, but worth the effort. Not sure it is never not crowded.
