We booked our hotel in Tiberias very close to the old city and left over ruins. It is not the prettiest and cleanest town I have ever seen but not the worst either. It has a promenade seemingly dirty and not a lot of people there until the evening. There are different neat restaurants leading up into the city center... More

This a really old city, but it seems like it is stuck in time! Has a huge potential but no one seems to take care of it at Tiberias. A shame... It's a religious city, most of the shops and restaurants are closed during Sabbath and holidays

I didnt really find a great hotel here, but this is where to stay if you want to spend the day at the Sea of Galilee. Nice cafes along the market area for dinner.

If only for the weather, stay away from Tiberias during the summer. Just too damn hot. But they are working so hard to improve the image of the town The hotels are dowdy, but shopping is great...actually nothing I can't find there. Even the shopping mall opened two years ago seems to be thriving. In spite of all predictions that... More

I love Tiberias. It is a town of character and its location is beautiful on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. It is nice to go for a walk in the evenings to observe everything and the ways of the Israelis.

Recently booked a private boat tour with Galilee Sailing in Tiberias. David- excellent english- was informative, funny and played happy music for us (as he is a musician as well). Highly recommend using them either private or with a group. Joey and David - brothers- own company and can be reached at email: joey@galileesailing.com or 972-50-9397000 (Joey's mobile).

Laced with ruins and history, Tiberias draws crowds from various parts of Israel and the world. You will see everything from the conservative orthodox to modern day dress and traditions. Like any resort, it is crowded and noisy, except on the Sabbath which begins just before sunset on Friday until Saturday evening. Don't count on finding many, if any, open... More

The town itself is not much to write about, but the great beaches around the sea, the wonderful food and lovely views of the sea make the stay worthwhile. It has a very nice boardwalk with a audio-visual show which is viewed well especially at evening time with the sea as a backdrop. In addition it is a great launch... More
