Galilee

The Galilee is one of Israel’s most lush and tropical environments with incredible mountainous scenery and breathtaking views of the famous “Sea of Galilee”.  Most visitors comment that it’s easy to feel as if you are in biblical times when you visit the area where Jesus spent most of his life. 

 

The abundance of water and the fertile soil in the Galilee’s valleys have kept the region consistently populated since ancient times. Today the concentration of biblical sites and the extraordinary natural beauty with scenic landscapes are reasons why Christians from all over the world love to visit the Galilee. Experience the sunset while eating a delicious dinner of St. Peter's fish on the Sea of Galilee along the promenade.

 

In addition to the many Jewish villages, Galilee has the largest variety of ethnic communities in Israel. There are Druze villages and Circassian communities, who preserve their ancient traditions; there are Arab villages with Muslim majorities or Christian majorities, and some live together with an equal balance of communities.
