Christian Galilee

On this tour you will visit the historic locations and view the scenery of the places where Jesus lived, preached and performed his miracles in the Galilee region.

 

We will start with a drive to Nazareth where we will visit the Basilica of the Annunciation – the biggest church in the Middle East and the place where the Virgin Mary received the Annunciation from the Angel Gabriel, where she conceived and became the mother of Jesus.

Nearby is the Church of St. Joseph and the Holy Family with its archeological remains at the grotto of the Jewish village of Nazareth from 2000 years ago.

 

From Nazareth we will drive via the village of Cana* -- place of the First Miracle, and through the picturesque landscapes of the lower Galilee.

 

Finally we will arrive at the beautiful Sea of Galilee -- Lake Kinneret -- where Jesus found his disciples, walked on the water, and where the home of Maria Magdalena was found. It is the place where Jesus preached and performed miracles.

 

 

At the Sea of Galilee you will have the opportunity to go to the water’s edge and feel the beautiful atmosphere at the site of Peter's Primacy with its small Basalt church and lush gardens surrounded by huge Sycamore trees. This is the place Jesus revealed himself to his Disciples after the resurrection.

Nearby we will visit Tabgha -- the site of the Miracle of Multiplication of Loaves and Fish and the archeological site of Capernaum -- considered the center of Jesus's ministry while he was living in this area.

 

After spending time at the shores of the lake we will enjoy the view overlooking the lake from Mount of Beatitudes where Jesus gave the famous Sermon on the Mount and we will visit the unique octagonal Church of the Beatitudes.

 

Driving along the lake, we will arrive at the origin of the Jordan River -- the Yardenit Baptismal Site. It is a naturally scenic and symbolic setting where pilgrims from around the world come to contemplate and perform baptismal ceremonies.

  

*optional: visit to Cana's Wedding Church to have your marriage vows renewed in a beautiful modest ceremony.

If the city of Haifa is on our way, we will not miss the panoramic view of the famous Baha'I Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
