Can you drive in the mountains in Galilee ?

if so, are you allowed with a hire car or not?

And what are the views like, can you see the sea from below?

No problem driving in the Galilee. The views are fantastic, even the roads going down to the Sea of Galilee. Do a Google search to see what the views are like.

The Galilee is not only near the sea but also the Upper Galilee where Zfat is, the Lower Galilee where Nazareth is, the Hula Valley where the Agamon is and the Kinnarot Valley which is where the lake is located.

Thank you Chana. Want to visit Akko and the Galilee area from Tel Aviv. Is it best to do day trips to each of these or stay overnight somewhere and if so where ?

Not wise to do day trips to Galilee from Tel Aviv. You're best off staying overnight in the region in one of the kibbutz hotels, such as Kfar Blum, Hagoshrim, Nof Ginosar or Lavi.

If you want to visit the Galilee, it would definitely be better to be staying in the area. Tel Aviv and Tiberias are not next door to each other and you would spend a lot of time driving back and forth.From Tel Aviv you could visit Akko on the way to the Galilee . You could rent a car in Tel Aviv for this trip. After visiting Akko, drive through the mountains to the Sea of Galilee. I would suggest staying in one of the more rural settings such as a kibbutz hotel or Tzimmer (B and B). Tiberias isn't the most beautiful place to stay in and there are some stunning locations in the area.
