Country information

Lake Tiberias (also known as the Sea of Galilee) is an area closely associated with the life and times of Jesus, making it a religious center for both Christians and Jews, and the area is full of religious shrines and historical sites of interest.

The city of Tiberias was built in honor of the Roman Emperor. Not only did it serve as an important spiritual center and as the site of the compilation of the Talmud, early pioneers also established some of Israel's first kibbutzim (collective farms) around Tiberias.
Many travelers still visit farms, ranches, and kibbutzim in the area.

Today, Galilee is a popular vacation spot, offering year-round and is also the perfect area to explore if you want to experience some of the biblical landscapes.

The highlight of your classic tour is the Golden city of Jerusalem. Explore the Old City visiting Mount Zion and the tomb of King David, next, walk along an ancient Roman road, the Cardo to see the Jewish Quarter.
