Tiberias and the Sea of Galilee

Tiberias, built in about 20 AD by Herod Antipas , the son of Herod the Great , is an Israeli city rich in history and points of interest. It is also one of the most popular holiday resorts in Israel 's North.

Tiberias and the area surrounding it offer a wonderful blend of nature, history and contemporary attractions. Foremost among them is the Sea of Galilee – actually a small lake - upon whose shores the city is situated and which is also the location of many sites associated with Jesus' ministry, such as the Mt. of the Beatitudes, Tabgha, Capernaum and the River Jordan.
