- Visit the Holy Land sites of Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee on a day trip from Jerusalem. You'll journey across Israel's coastal plains to explore the city of Nazareth, the setting of many New Testament tales, then travel to the Sea of Galilee, where Jesus performed many miracles. If you're intrigued by the sacred, or simply interested in the fascinating fables of the bible, this tour should be on your must-do list!
Set off from Jerusalem in your air-conditioned coach to the town of Nazareth, where you will visit popular Holy Land sites such as the Church of the Annunciation (where the Angel Gabriel visited the Virgin Mary) and the Church of St Joseph's Carpentry.
Continuing north through the small village of Kafer Kana, your Holy Land day trip passes the Church of the Multiplication by the Sea of Galilee, where Jesus' miracle of the loaves and fishes and the feeding of the 5,000 took place.
Stop on the shores of the Sea of Galilee to explore the ancient fishing village of Capernaum, and discover the ruins of the celebrated great Synagogue where Jesus first taught his followers.
Finally, travel via the coastal city of Tiberias to reach Yardenit – a sacred site at the southern end of the Sea of Galilee where the River Jordan flows down to meet the Dead Sea. Many Christian visitors to the region feel a deep connection to the River Jordan; as such it is possible to be baptized here, as part of the tour. Passing the stunning Mt. Tabor, your tour returns to Tel Aviv.
Whatever your religion, no trip to Israel is complete without seeing these Holy Land places of such historical and cultural importance!
