At Tsippori National Park, in the central Galilee Mountains, Roman and Jewish civilizations come together in this 2000 year old city containing the most beautiful mosaics in Israel.
After your visit, continue to the northwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee with its many landmarks, including:
Capernaum - Known as "Jesus' Town" in the New Testament, Capernaum on the Sea of Galilee is home to one of the earliest churches in the world as well as a monumental ancient synagogue. This was also Peter's home town where Jesus performed many miracles.
Tabha- Jesus' miracle of the Multiplication of the Fish and Loaves is illustrated beautifully in an ancient mosaic of the Byzantine church that stood here. Visit the renovated Benedictine church, built in the same style and along the same lines as the original one.
The Yigal Alon Museum at Kibbutz Ginosar - This is a unique institution, focusing on the human experience in the Galilee in the past, present and future. It is also home to changing exhibits showcasing the finest talents of Galilee artists from a variety of faiths and ethnic backgrounds, and the magnificent display of the Galilee Boat, dating from the time of Jesus, discovered mired in the mud on the shore of the Sea of Galilee.
