#3 of 7 in Wildlife in Galilee
Relax in the steaming hot springs of Hamat Gader Park. Built by the 10th Roman legion, the bathing complex dates back to the second century CE. The park is rich with ancient ruins of the original bathing complex, along with remnants of a 1,500-year-old synagogue and Roman theater. The hot springs themselves have a high concentration of sulphur, believed to provide a therapeutic effect for a variety of ailments and pains. Be sure to walk down to the small zoo area, which features both an alligator farm and petting zoo.

Where to stay in Tiberias

Offering both affordable dorm beds and the most luxurious hotels in northern Israel, the resort town of Tiberias accommodates a wide range of tourists. The lakeshore and the main street are the top location for many inexpensive hotels; come with a reservation, especially during July and August, when domestic tourists take over. A good number of convenient mid-range hotels lie up on the hill on Route 77, providing great views of the Sea of Galilee.
