The two churches in this town will move anybody, regardless of their religious beliefs. The architecture is stunning and give the whole place an atmosphere to remember.

It is a replica of a Nazarene town. While clearly touristy, it works quite well and gives you a very good insight into the life style 2000 years ago. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

We really enjoyed the Nazareth Village experience. It takes you back in time -using real remains that they have found, excavated and use. The tour guide was really great -knew her stuff and was engaging with the group. If you have traveled to Nazareth and are curious to see what it looked like in "Jesus' Time" then this is the... More

In the middle of the city, a sense of what Nazareth was like 2000 years ago. A good "living museum."

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.
