About 5 km north of Tiberias, along Route 90 and near the Arbel Cliffs, sits the ancient fishing town of Magdala. Known as the hometown of Mary Magdalene, Magdala (Migdal in Aramaic) is now the site of a rare historic find: a well-preserved first-century synagogue, one of only seven of that period found in Israel. By and large, Magdala nowadays is an archeological site, revealing ancient buildings with colourful mosaic floors and wall frescoes. There is still so much to be uncovered. (The modern town of Migdal is nearby, offering various accommodations to visitors.)
While Magdala's ancient port is now buried under the beach, this was the site where the now-Galilee Boat (aka Jesus Boat) had been discovered after several droughts lowered the water enough to have exposed the hull. (Btw, the preserved boat is currently housed in the Beit Yigal Allon Museum at the Ginosar kibbutz.)
Magdala is an interesting archeological site, for sure, the likes of Megiddo and Masada but, as a tourist attraction, it is not for everyone. Your call. Grade B.
