    There is a Synagogue here, the location is beautiful and the iconic statue of Peter holding the keys to heaven is here

    Too bad it's covered over by a church. Hampers taking in this little village's character.

    Nice preservation at the Capernaum location. A church has been built over it to memorialize the probable house of Peter's mother in law. I liked the quotes in Latin and wood work around the walls of the church. Nice beach front.

    St. Peter's house lays on the ground as archaeological findings and has octagonal shape church. Nice architecture.

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.
