Sea of Galilee, Tiberias

4.6
#1 of 70 in Nature in Israel
A large freshwater lake situated on a northern part of the Israeli-Jordanian border, Sea of Galilee offers visitors scenic hiking, swimming, and boating opportunities. Featured prominently in ancient Jewish and Christian scripture, the sea served as the site of much of Jesus Christ's ministry in the Gospels. Today the lake provides a source of fresh water to Israeli homes and attracts flocks of visitors to its shores. Taste fresh fish at restaurants on the lake's edge, walk along the pier in Tiberias, or board a boat for a tour from the water. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Tiberias trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

    He took us to a trip by boat as part of the tour in Israel. The truth is that it was a tawdry and less interesting. The typical dances for tourists with canned music and a failed attempt to catch some fish with the typical local fishing gear

    Interesting to know it, but it's not to go swimming, just walk an hour, it has a restaurant term average, fish of the day and some typical flavors are tasted.

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.
