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.

When we come to this lake, we can imagine the experience of Jesus's Disciples sailed in the lake. In this lake we can see the beauty of birds those flew around the lake. Near this lake, we can eat Peter Fish, this fish very popular and you must eat it. When we sail around the lake with the boat, we... More

Tiberias was a bit too touristy for me -- lots of tour groups. My favorite part of Tiberias was seeing it from across the lake when the sun shone through brightly over the whitewashed city on an otherwise cloudy day.

We set out to hike the Jesus trail, in which case we would not have stayed in this city. After a day of hiking, we caught a bus. Ha. But we also found Tiberias. Within about a 20 minute drive for most biblical sites in the area. Has the feel of a Florida beach town. Plenty of fun activities around.... More

I did a 10 day tour of Israel and spent 1 afternoon/evening in Tiberias. The city is dirty and run down. I was with my family and did not feel 100% safe. Considering that every other city that I visited in Israel was beautiful, I think I would have skipped Tiberias and spent more time somewhere else.

Tiberias is a must go for travelers in Israel. The Kineret (Sea of Galillee) is amazing. I recommend the Gai Beach hotel and the Decks Restaurant.

Great place to visit the graves of great Rabbis, if you are so inclined. My friend and I visited the Rambam, and the grave of the Baal Hanes. Not sure about Kever Rachel with it controversy. From Tveria one can travel all around the Sea of Galilee.
