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

Extreme heat in summer makes it very uncomfortable to walk around the town. Best to visit during the winter months. Plenty of reasonably priced restaurants in the area. There is a pedestrian walkway along Lake Kinneret, but you can only do this in the late evening without melting away.

tiberias needs a total overhaul,on the journey there was an misleading article from the mayor of tiberias,saying how wonderful histown is.SO UNTRUE.it lacks character,it smells of rubbish as some people are incapable of disposing of their rubbish in the correct way.the promenade is falling apart,the public toilets are disgusting.the music on the promenade loud and horrible.

If you’re looking for something to do that would give you thrills and chills during your vacation in Israel, try zip-lining and snappling( Israeli version of rappelling) at the Omega Park located in the North of Israel, Manara Cliff, Tzuk Manara around Tiberias. A zip line, called “omega” in Hebrew, is created by suspending a pulley on a cable that... More

Tiberius is not a holy site as such for a pilgrim but it is ideally situated for anyone visiting the northern part of the Holy Land. The town itself is steeped in history and many of the old ruins look even older as they are constructed with black rocks. There are many restaurants, hotels, guesthouses and shops. The shore areas...

We had made some bad experience with taxi drivers when we entered Israel at the Jordan River crossing on a Saturday. There was only one driver and he overcharged us for the trip from the border to Tiberias (400 shekel!). The fare should have been around 200 to 250 shekel, but since he was the only driver on a Shabat... More

I enjoyed walking near the sea and the old ruins but walking by the shops was not as pleasant. There are some very modern shops next to trailer shops. On the floor near the trailer shops, there were many cockroaches. It was really dirty and disgusting. I would suggest wearing full running shoes if you decide to walk in this... More

There are a few scattered ruins to see here but we used Tiberias as a base to see Nazareth and the biblical sites near to the Sea of Galilee. Tiberias is a resort town for the Israelis and accommodation and eating out is expensive here.

This was our base, and from here we visited the Sea of Galilee, Capernaum, Tabgha and the Mount of Beatitudes. We ate at St. Peter's restaurant and had St. Peter's fish (tilapia) which was good. We also continued to the Golan Heights and Banias, which was interesting.
