Nazareth, Tiberias, and the Sea of Galilee Day Trip from Tel Aviv

364 reviews
Visit Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee on a full-day trip from Tel Aviv to some of Israel’s most important Christian sites. You’ll follow the path of Jesus and the apostles as you visit places where Jesus is believed to have been born, taught, performed miracles, and been baptized. Since the tour is tailored to New Testament sites, it’s a great way to experience Israel’s Christian heritage with limited time.

This is a must visit especially for believers. This site is believed to be where Jesus preached >2000 years ago and this area is also where he performed some of his miracles. There is also a site here where it is believed Peter's house used to sit.

I could have stayed there the whole day. Unfortunately we were part of a tour group, and the tour guide did not allow much time for this visit. I will go back for sure

This was one of the highlights of the entire trip! Over half of Jesus’ documented miracles happened in this area. It has been really well preserved... especially Peter’s house. It sits right on the edge of the Sea of Galilee and is a beautiful place! We spent about 1.5-2 hours there but I literally could have stayed ALL day!

I loved seeing the remnants of the basalt synagogue, below the more famous one in the photo, because it is very likely the place where Yeshua spent Shabbat when he was in town. I also loved seeing what they think is the home of Peter. When I was there (twice, 1996 and 2000) it was required that women cover shoulders and knees, and no shorts for me, so beware.

We visited Capharnaum on our trip to Israel last summer (and on our previous trip to the holy Land about 5 or 6 years ago) and were very inspired and pleased to be there. The opportunity to walk where Christ walked two thousand years ago is so awe inspiring and unique that it should not be missed. Viewing the remains and ruins of the ancient town gives one a completely different concept of how Our Lord and the people of His time lived. It is much different from the classical pictures and mental images that one might have from grade school Bible History. Even a so-so spiritual person can feel closer, and more understanding of the New Testament and the Life of Christ after walking the lanes of the ruins of Capharnaum. Don't miss it!
