Description

The Galilee is mountain ridge in northern Israel, known to the western mostly as the homeland of Jesus of Nazareth.

Being so, we start by heading towards Nazareth, passing by the ruins of ancient Caesarea, Roman period metropolis, and Megiddo, probable location of “Armageddon” (Apocalypse 16:16), on the way.

At Nazareth  itself we first visit the Catholic Church of Annunciation  (Luke 1), its Archaeological Museum  and its nearby Saint Joseph Church .

Strolling through the Market we visit the Synagogue church (Luke 4), and up to “Mary’s Well”, and Saint Gabriel church .

Nearby we visit “Wedding church” in  Cana, located at the possible location of the “first miracle” performed by Jesus, in turning water into wine (John 2).

We then head towards the Sea of Galilee and possibly stop for lunch in one of the local fish restaurants (“Saint Peter’s fish  any one?..” ), as well as a baptism ceremony at the Jordan river  at  “Yardenit” .

At Tabgha , we can review the Church of the Multiplication of Loaves and fishes  (Luke 9), and the “Church of the Primacy of Peter”  (John 21).

Upon reaching Capernaum, “the town of Jesus“,we will review its archaeological finds, namely the Ancient Synagogue and the church over the house of Peter’s Mother in law.

Heading back, and if time permits, we can stop to view the finds related to Bethsaida  and Chorazin, or appreciate the modern church at the Mount of Beatitudes  and/ or “Domus Galilaeae“ .

We can also stop at the new excavation at Magdala, hometown of Mary Magdalene, where recently a first century Synagogue was discovered (!).

Nearby at Ginosar we can visit the famous 2000 year old  “Sea of Galilee Boat”  is displayed. Nearby we can also go for a Sail on the Sea of Galilee .

We can also visit Ancient Tiberias, regional center since the days of the Emperor Tiberius (hence its name).

If we return to Jerusalem, we could proceed by way of the Jordan valley, passing by BelvoirBeit She’anAenon near SalimJerichoBaptism site (el-Maghtas/ Qasr el-Yahud)Qumran  (site of the find of the Dead Sea Scrolls), and the Good Samaritan Inn  .
