Tiberias is warm and inviting, filled with fascinating vistas, incredibly historic locations, quaint little shops, excellent restaurants and a townsfolk that is as warm and welcoming as the balmy Mediteranean climate is.

When you are up for exploring Galilee and the Golan, in my opinion Tiberias is your best base for doing so. The town itselfs offers a nice beach and good facilities for every kind of traveller.

This place is busy and exciting town, with so much to do and so much to eat. Great time here. Stayed in a hotel right along side the Sea of Galilee. so much to do along the shores of the lake and the markets.

After one has had one's fill of the sights and sounds in 'modern' Tiberias proper, there are things to do and see just outside of town that decent walking shoes will get you there. Heading south on Eliezer Kaplan Avenue past the water park at Gai Beach, you get to the Ben Gurion Promenade. If you keep going in the... More

Decent nightlife, massive variety of places to eat. All activities kind of based in a small radius. Wouldn't necessarily spend a night there though. Another plus is that Galilee is not far.

Take time to look at a map. We walked the once busy wharf area and centre and found it enjoyable and interesting. Once full of hotels and tourists it is a lot quieter now I believe

Tiberias is not a big city and very easy to get around, although traffic can become congested at times as traffic funnels from three main directions to the concentrated downtown near the Sea of Galilee also known as Lake Kinneret. There are lots of hotels and restaurants close to the water and the options for day trips are limitless. Tiberias... More

In the OId Testament or the Tanakh of the Jews, in Joshua 19: 35 we see a list of cities namely: Hammat, Rakkat and Chinneret. It is thought that Tiberias, built in approximately 20 AD, by Herod Antipas, stands on the ruins of ancient Rakkat. Tiberias became the centre of Jewish learning after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD.... More

The Sea of Galilee is beautiful. Walk along the seashore, & take a boat trip. My wife & I had a good view of it from our hotel & we kept looking. I prayed on Friday night & Saturday morning at 1 of the old synagogues in the old section of Tiberias. If you're looking for that - go there.... More
