So sorry I didn’t get notified I had a message. We took a bus from the Vatican to Cassia, almost three hrs to get there. When we went to the Holy Land we did a tour which I highly recommend, we used Gate Ine but there are many tour companies that go there. It was an amazing tour plus we went to Petra also organized by Gate 1
Good luck to you both places were worth the visit!
