Lots of history in this vilage. Althoug is nor easy to find all the historic places. the village is not corretly thought to turism from my point of view. Only with a local guide you could visit the most places because without it you cant find them.

I loved this Nazareth Village. The whole village was beautiful, it helped me see what it would have been like to live at the time of Christ. But more important than the rebuilt city was the information and in site that our tour guide provided. I think often of the things I learned from him. This is a " must... More

This village seeks to reenact life 2000 years ago. Initially you start inside with an explanation of Nazareth's history then you go outside and watch several actors portray different roles. You see shepherds, threshers, kids, carpenters and clothing makers and go through their fully operational and authentic olive oil press. The tour goes for roughly 1 hour and is quite... More

The Village was a great re-enactment of what things could have been like 2000 years ago. The tour guide and the locals that portrayed the earlier villagers were nice and very informative. This a place where visitors should go to be somewhat oriented historically. It was time well spent and something I'd recomment

A very interesting place to visit.a reservation via phone is required in order for the right guide to give you a tour in the desired language. The tour takes about an hour. The place consists in a functional remake of a village from the Jesus period.

Visited here in mid-June 2014 with a group of 11. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the subject matter and did a wonderful job of relating what we were seeing to Biblical history. This is a tour that makes Biblical history come to live before your eyes as the various vignettes help you to envision what life was like in... More

We visited early, before the heat of the day, and it was wonderful. Our guide, Daniel, was very informative and friendly. I will bring a group back there the next time I visit Nazareth. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a place that puts much in perspective regarding the way of life of Jesus/Yeshua of Nazareth.

Our group tour included this stop in Nazareth to replicate Nazareth in the time of Jesus. Costumed staff demonstrated weaving, farming, sheep herding, etc. with a guided tour. This was a nice visual to help get a better live visual of old Nazareth.
