Start the day with a visit to the Christian holy sites around the Sea of Galilee, including:
The Mount of Beatitudes: The traditional site of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount with its beautiful view of the lake and its sacred sites.
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.
Bethsaida: Home of Peter, Andrew and Philip and scene of Jesus’ healing of a blind man.
The Yigal Alon Museum at Kibbutz Ginosar: A magnificent display of the wooden Galilee Boat, dating from the time of Jesus, discovered mired in the mud on the shore of the Sea of Galilee.
In the afternoon, drive to scenic Mount Tabor, scene of Deborah and Barak’s battle against Sisera, and of the Transfiguration of Jesus.
Consider an evening boat-ride on the Sea of Galilee.
