  • Maybe other points that lead back to the life of Jesus, Capernaum is what most seems to give precise references to places and people in the Bible. The synagogue still standing in some of its walls and columns, it retains an old world charm and Peter's House is just as interesting if it weren't for the eco-Monster costruitovi above. On the Lake you have particular views and it's good to stop for a break sipping a Pomegranate juice.

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.
