Dirty, disappointing, and not too much of anything to do. It was like they had never heard of the word "tourist". You could go for a boat ride on the sea from there, but the price was way too much to ride in a dirty boat. Ridiculous roadway traffic as well, if you are there at the wrong time.

Tiberias was once a great and mighty city. Until a few years ago it was one of the tourism centers of Israel. People would come from the four corners of the Earth to stay on the banks of the sea of Gallilee. Oh Yes! The History and Theology will never die but is that truly enough to expect people to...

We were looking forward to strolling along the boardwalk in Tiberias, but found trash, broken windows, dried ice cream and cigarette butts everywhere--the stores had dried dust on the windows. It was such a disappointment. What potential it had. We won't be back.

If you travel in the Galilee region you will for sure go through Tiberias. From my first visit in 1985 I have witnessed many changes over the years some good and some not as good. I believe Tiberias is in the process of making a comeback in their appeal to the traveler.

We spent a night touring the town. It has many shops and restaurants. We walked down to the street near the marina to look at the Sea. No real attractions, but a nice stroll at night.

It could be a marvelous place to stay if just city majors did the needed renovations faster and let the tourists enjoy even their weekend stay ! At the weekends, most of the city attractions are closed due to Saturday which is the holiday of the Jewish religion.
