    Take a ride on a boat to experience the Sea of Galilee! From the water looking towards the shore you can still SEE what Jesus and His disciples saw.

    Impressive views of the Lake of Galilee, and the cliff is on top of the mount, we were due to go down the trail but due to the fact that it rained a few days earlier the trail was closed, and it is very steep as well.
    Worth visiting on a clear day.

    I loved the simplicity of this church! We arrived at the time when the nuns were ringing the bells for the Angelus!

    We bought bottles and field with water from the Jordan River. We did not get baptised there. There is another area for Baptisms as well up the river. The water looks like a river and the store has nice souviners.

    We took a free tour of this unique church community facing the Galilee. The guide was polite and enthusiastic and the place beautiful.

    Amazing National Park, located in Tiberias, very near to the center of the town, it is the place of the hot springs as well, and the interesting thing is that the hot sources work when the lake is high also there is enough archeology as this is the place where the Romans built the town, parking is only on the street but worth the visit

    We lodged at the Villa Alliance, across from the ancient Fortress to get the feel of old Tiberias. We enjoyed walking both to the Sea of Galilee, as well as into town for meals. If you are traveling with a large church group, you will most likely lodge at the shores of the Sea of Galilee in a modern facility, but then you will find yourself removed from town. The ancient and modern contrast in Tiberias is noticeable, but the Sea of Galilee is beautiful wherever you stay. Tiberias is a convenient place to spend several days as you explore the surrounding Christian sites.

    We went in June to aquakef in Tiberius as a family of 2 adults and three children. Unfortunately the little one couldn’t go due to age so dad stayed off the course. The actual obstacle course is fun and really recommended for most ages. The only criticism I have is that there isn’t any place to sit and lounge in the sun for waiting people or after the course. We sat on the grass which was Ok but the grass area is in need of modernization and a nice seating area with loungers would make all the difference. Otherwise great place and very good fun.

    Nice place, our hotel's pool was always crowded with children and offered no relaxing experience so this park saved the day.
    Pools are clean, mineralized and warm; the view of the lake is a nice addition.

    This is one of the oldest and richest archeology sites in Israel. It really gave me a visual of ancient life in Israel and a desire to open up the Bible in which the city is mentioned many times. Biblically it was one of city's conquered by Joshua and one of the 4 cities fortified by King Solomon.

    Worth spending an hour or two at Kibbutz Degania on the way to or from Tiberias or the Golan Heights. A lot of the history of this pioneering collective community has been preserved here. The small museum has some fascinating photos (even though there are no English captions) and several of the original buildings and courtyard have been restored. Wander around the paths of the kibbutz and chances are a veteran member will ride past and stop to chat. A cafe on the grounds is a pleasant place to get refreshments and take a breather.

    The site is connected to the Christian history, as a site where one of the miracles happened, it is located on the eastern side of the Sea of Galilee, and has a bizantine church and many nice mosaics, worth for a short visit

  • This is the burial spot of the famous Moses Maimonides, known by the acronym Rambam. He lived and died 800 years ago. He was a world famous Jewish sage and scholar and codified and organized and explaining all the ancient Jewish religious and ritual laws. His teachings are actively learned, taught, studied and implemented more than 800 years later. In terms of importance and prominence, this Jewish scholar, teacher and leader is considered second only to the original Moses himself, the liberator of the Israelites from Egypt and the giver of the Torah law.

    No less amazing to me (and maybe even more) is the several adjacent burial plots, especially of Rabbi Yohanan ben Zakkai, who is credited by tradition with single-handedly saving and ensuring the survival and continuity of the Jewish people and its religious and cultural life after the brutal destruction and decimation by the pagan Romans in the year 70- imagine that: a known grave from 1950 years ago. Next to him are buried at least two additional Talmud teachers from the subsequent era, 1500-1800 years ago.

    There is also here the interment site of the scholar from a few hundred years ago, HaShlah, known in English as “The Shlaw.” He is most famous for his prayers for healthy and upstanding children. And sure enough, there were two separate women there at his grave, fervently praying for children (of course I have no photos of them).

    As stated and implied in my title, this place has been renovated and restored. When I first visited in 1978, I was shocked at how run down, neglected and decrepit it was. On a subsequent visit- still a good number of years ago- I found the place in the same disgraceful condition.

    I was so happy to see the nice renovation that was done probably there to five years ago... the only negative is that the ultra religious authorities placed an almost three meter high wooden barrier in the middle of the burial place, including straight down the middle of the cenotaph- a separation between men and women; on the men’s side, a synagogue was establish, which shouldn’t be done in a cemetery- and that is what this is.

    Please see and enjoy my photos from four days ago when “I visited this place.”
