Nice to see

We enjoyed exploring Tiberias and especially liked the restaurant "decks". They have good outlet malls there.

This town on the Lake of Galilee is not so attractive after popular places, but gives a view in Israel's everyday life. By the way, it's one of four holy cities for judaism - has 5-10 tombs of important rabbies, seat of Sanhedrin and Talmud was written here. It's excellent basis for exploaring attractive places in the area: Nazareth, Kapernaum,... More

Without question, Tiberias is one of my favorite cities here in Israel, right after Eilat. The city itself has four great attractions – the Old City, with parts of the ancient walls and turrets still standing; the seaside promenade lined with hotels, restaurants, and nightclubs; the Tiberias Hot Springs (see my review); and finally, on the western part of the...

We had chance only to be in Tiberias at night, since all day long we would be elsewhere.... We walked from our hotel Restal Hotel, and walking along a route where we could see few remains of the old city, and few shopping areas. We had a opportunity to visit a dry fruit shop, where dry dates and figs, and... More

On weekend everything is closed, including restaurants. Good for Christians who wants to see religion-related sites.

We found the city to run down and somewhat depressed from previous visits. Tourist areas were empty and owners were begging us to shop or eat by them.

Tiberias is a very quaint town with many things to see and do. Great shopping and restaurants. The Leonardo Plaza Hotel is an excellent place to stay.

This town was our base for 4 nights as we visited sights around gallilee, it is very convenient for all the sights, we did not need to travel any more than an hour to anywhere. The town itself is pleasant enough, there is a nice boardwalk along the lake side with some nice cafes and shops and a night market... More

This city has so much to offer: religious sites, sea of gallilea with the golan heights in the background, natural hot water spas, beaches, history of over 2000 years, jumping point for great hikes etc, but the town is so neglected, dirty, traffic - such a shame.
