NAZARETH, THE SEA OF GALILEE AND THE GOLAN - JESUS DOES LOVE YOU!

With one plastic Jesus on the dashboard, we invite you to explore Israel's wonderful north. Less than two hours away from Tel Aviv, the Hills and sights of the Galilee are a definite ba-gock! Many historic wonders have happened in the green hills of the Galilee, and this fabulous journry might just be another miracle waiting to happen.

 

Your trip begins in Nazareth, where you can visit the Basilica of the Annunciation, where St. Gabriel (Hebrew for "Masculine God") informed Mary that she would be the mother of the Massiah (Luke 1; 30).

 

Take a look at the outstanding mosaics that cover the walls of the cathedral, the impressive cave and the wonderfull decorations, depicting milestones in Jesus' life. Don't miss the Church of St. Joseph, constructed over his ancient carpentry workshop, and a visit Nazareths old bazaar.

 

Drive up to Marys well ("White Stone fountain"), fed to this very day with fresh spring water, and visit Cana, where Jesus allegedly performed his first miracle: turning water into wine.

 

Drive up the magnificent upper Galilee and visit Tabgha and Cpernaum on the sea of Galilee, where Jesus preformed two of his most renowned miracles – multiplying 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread and feeding 5,000 followers.

As you try to walk on water, don't forget to visit the remains of the ancient synagogue and the house of St. Peter, and enjoy a relaxing lunch on the shores of the Sea of Galilee.

 

Enjoy the breathtaking view of the Sea of Galilee and the Jordan Valley from the Shalom vista point, and drive on the scenic road along the borders of Israel, Jordan and Syria, reching the Baptismal site on the Jordan River (Yardenit).
