A vertical cliff towering magnificently over the Sea of Galilee and looking out towards the Golan Heights and Mt Hermon;
The weather was very nice and we enjoyed hiking the trail to the top. The history of the place is amazing and tragic for the Jewish people trying to escape the Romans. The way they hid in the side of the cliffs and the way the Romans finally killed them was sad. An example of the cages lowered over the edges by the Romans is at the entrance. Well worth the visit!!

We were on a tour and took a ride on the Sea of Galilee. Of all the places we visited, everyone was ‘maybe’ Jesus was here. For a fact we know Jesus was on the Sea of Galilee. It was a great moment for reflection. When we finished, there was a Museum with a 2,000+ year old boat that had been discovered in the seabed during a drought. No claim was made as to owner, etc but archaeologists dated the boat at least 2,000 years old. Beautiful sea (or in Texas a lake). It was amazing to know that on the other side of the Sea were the Golan Heights and on the other side the is a civil war in Syria. Throughly enjoyed the trip.

National park and remains of a fishing village from the time of the Second Temple, on a site that was the focus of Jesus’ Galilee ministry.
We came as a group (non-religious) and visited the Church over Peter's house. The glass allows visitors to see the Octagonal byzantine church beneath from well over 1500 years ago.
The site has numerous excavated buildings, along with a large Synagogue said to be from the 2nd century. Many capitals from the columns are also on display and you will have to find the one that depicts the moving of the Jewish temple.

Beautiful Saturday morning (09:00) , four of us are met by Gil , the smiling friendly student from Brazil , who shows us around this stunning place , patiently answering our questions , explaining the purpose of Domus Galilea . Amazing Panorama of the Kineret lake .
I recommend that if you are travelling by yourselves , (not with an organized tour) - call in advance to reserve the tour of this place .
To add an additional taste to this visit , we continued from here to "Tzel Tamar" restaurant (At Kibutz Ashdot Ya'akov Ichud) for a great relaxed late brakfast (See separate review) .

As a non-religious person, I'm sure my experience of this place is different to those of faith. I rented a bike in Tiberias and cycled south around the Sea of Galilee for the day and this was one of my stops along the way. The gifts and cosmetic shop at the entrance is a bit tacky, making the place feels cheap and nasty (though I'm sure the souvenirs are expensive). I was a little confused by this place as Jordan claims they have access to the baptismal site from their side of the Jordan River much further south. However, I found it amusing to watch those pilgrims dress in flowing white coats, dousing themselves in the river's water, some even swan diving elegantly from the low platforms.

Kibbutz Ginosar has a museum devoted to a small fishermen boat that was found at the bottom of the Sea of Galilee in the 80's. The boat is 2,000 years old and it is beautifully preserved and displayed.
There is a short video about the finding of the boat, the rescue, excavation, preservation and research.
The Kibbutz is not far from Pina Balev in Rosh Pinna (where we stayed - highly recommended!) and a few minutes' drive from the Primacy and the Fish and Bread churches.
Highly recommended, a beautiful piece of ancient history.

Berenice Winery is a boutique winery located in an old Basalt house in the city of Tiberias. The winery offers tastes of the award winning wines of Gidi Badt and a visit to the rare old house. It is possible to arrange accommodation - please notify in advance.
Our visit at Berenice Winery turned out to be much more than wine tasting! The hosts, Estee and Gidi, are so warm, gracious and friendly and they shared their story and their passion for wine. The salads and breads were amazing! This winery is a MUST if you visit Tiberias! Several in our group said that is was like "visiting old friends"....

Stopped there unintentionally when trying to get to Hamat Tiberias and fascinated. Looked derelict from outside but we went in as we were there and found lots of people were praying but there was also a market and people barbecuing all around. Slightly surreal but would recommend it.

I can’t stress how much i disliked this city/town. There is nothing going for it. It’s run down, dirty, full of rude drivers, and absolutely void of anything pretty that might be of interest to tourists. I get the feeling they don’t like or appreciate the money tourism can bring in. It’s just plain awful! Board of tourism do something!!! A very unwelcoming place!

Degania Alef, 'Mother of the Kibbutzim' is the first Kibbutz, established in 1910 on the shores of the Sea of Galilee and Jordan River. A fascinating social experiment in communal living, which has lasted more than a century. History, culture and heritage from pioneer days at the beginning of last century, continued by today's vibrant pioneers in modern Kibbutz living.
