Galilee lies in northern Israel and is the home of many historical and Biblically significant sites. Common sights to see include the Mount of the Beatitudes, Tabgha, and Capernaum, the gathering areas of the first pupils and disciples of Jesus and home to his ministry. The grounds of Galilee have also been witness to many of Jesus’ miracles, from feeding the 5,000 with loaves and fish, to the glorious transfiguration.
In Galilee, climb Mount Gilboa, and imagine the historic battles of King Saul and the Philistines. Popular towns in Galilee include Acre, Nahariya, Nazareth, Safed, Karmiel, Shaghur, Afula, Tiberias, and the port city of Haifa, which serves as a commercial center for the whole region.
