Tiberias Tours

The city of Tiberias has a lot of superlatives to its name; it’s the only city on the Sea of Galilee, the lowest city in Israel at 656 feet (200 meters) below sea level and is one of Judaism’s four holy cities. It’s also a sunbaked resort town with hotels, restaurants, discos and a boardwalk along Lake Kineret, where secular tourists often come to party.

Behind this facade lies 2,000 years of history. The ancient city was founded by Herod Antipas in 18 AD and named after the Roman emperor. Plentiful natural hot springs and a warm winter climate quickly established Tiberias as a popular winter resort in ancient times. For modern-day visitors looking to explore the holy sites around the Sea of Galilee Tiberias makes an excellent base.

Practical Info

Due to its below-sea-level position, Tiberias can be extremely hot and unpleasant during July and August.
