Capernaum

4.5
A trip to Capernaum takes pilgrims and tourists to the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee, which represents one of the major historical sites to see in Israel. Mentioned in the New Testament on several occasions as the spot in which Jesus set up his public ministry, Capernaum appeals to those interested in the sites related to the Bible, including what is thought to be the home of Saint Peter. Abandoned some time before the Crusades, the ruins offer a window into the changing face of the region during and after the Biblical period. Capernaum is in Galilee.

Where to stay in Capernaum

Capernaum itself offers no accommodations, with the ruins of the village thankfully left undisturbed by modern developments. Visitors usually stay in the large town of Tiberias, itself a fascinating place with Biblical history. Look along the shoreline of Tiberias for some of the more upscale resorts and hotels, with many offering their own tours of the Sea of Galilee and Capernaum. For more budget-friendly options, go farther inland and look along the side streets that run off Highway 77.
