From Tel Aviv: Nazareth, Galilee & the Sea of Galilee Tour

3. From Tel Aviv: Nazareth, Galilee & the Sea of Galilee Tour

During this tour, you'll visit important holy places for the Christians in the Galilee Mountains where Christ spent most of his life on earth. Drive through the Galilee to visit Nazareth, a relatively small city which is the cradle of Christianity where the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ lived. One of the first stops is the Church of the Annunciation, the traditional site of Mary’s home. Afterwards, head to The St. Joseph Church, built on the location of the carpentry workshop of Joseph, father of Jesus. After leaving Nazareth, make a short stop in Kfar Cana where Jesus performed his first miracle by changing water into wine. Then, continue to the Church at Tabgha, the site of the miracle of the multiplication of loaves and fishes. Take a short walk along the Tabha-Capernaum promenade to 'Mensa Christi', the site of the events described in the Gospels.  It was there that Jesus cooked breakfast for the disciples, the miraculous catching of fish took place, and Peter’s reconciliation. Proceed from Tabgha to Capernaum, a remnant of the once-thriving Jewish community from the 2nd century and where Jesus began his ministry. View the ancient Synagogue and the home of St. Peter. Finally, drive through the city of Tiberias to Yardenit and experience the spirituality and pastoral beauty of the waters of the River Jordan, in which Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist.

What people are saying about Nazareth

Our Guide to Nazareth and Galilee, Ehud, was Amazing!

Ehud picked us up at a private residence in Natanya for our full day tour of Nazareth and Galilee. He was punctual and had an amazing day planned for us. His car was luxurious, spacious and very well kept. He kept us ahead of the large crowds and made sure we had space to see the sites and hear his knowledgeable and thorough explainations. We had a lovely lunch and were able to try the St Peter fish which was delicious. He surprised us at the end of the tour with a trip to the oldest kibbutz in Israel and then delivered us to our hotel in Jerusalem. An amazing day and an amazing guide! We highly recommend him.
