DescriptionDuring this tour, you'll visit important holy places for the Christians in the Galilee Mountains where Christ spent most of his life on earth. Drive through the Galilee to visit Nazareth, a relatively small city which is the cradle of Christianity where the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ lived. One of the first stops is the Church of the Annunciation, the traditional site of Mary’s home. Afterwards, head to The St. Joseph Church, built on the location of the carpentry workshop of Joseph, father of Jesus. After leaving Nazareth, make a short stop in Kfar Cana where Jesus performed his first miracle by changing water into wine. Then, continue to the Church at Tabgha, the site of the miracle of the multiplication of loaves and fishes. Take a short walk along the Tabha-Capernaum promenade to 'Mensa Christi', the site of the events described in the Gospels. It was there that Jesus cooked breakfast for the disciples, the miraculous catching of fish took place, and Peter’s reconciliation. Proceed from Tabgha to Capernaum, a remnant of the once-thriving Jewish community from the 2nd century and where Jesus began his ministry. View the ancient Synagogue and the home of St. Peter. Finally, drive through the city of Tiberias to Yardenit and experience the spirituality and pastoral beauty of the waters of the River Jordan, in which Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist.
