"Tiberias is popular for various reasons, but in particular for it's stunning views of the infamous Sea of Galilee, where Jesus performed one of his many miracles..."
Despite Galilee being a relatively small region in the north of Israel, it offers great natural beauty including the Sea of Galilee, Jordan River, a stunning mountain range and the lush green Biriya Forest. Galilee also has deep Biblical roots and many sites of Biblical importance, with the region being Jesus’ home for much of his life with many of Jesus’ miracles said to have been performed there, including the Feeding of the 5,000, Walking on Water and Curing a Blind Man. Galilee therefore attracts visitors who appreciate stunning nature as well as those with a historical and religious interest. A very popular form of accommodation for tourists in Galilee are Kibbutz, where there is a focus on communal living and nature preservation. Tiberias is a small city located west of the Sea of Galilee, and is popular with tourists and offers a good selection luxury hotels.
