A city with so much potential that is lost. On the sea if galilee with historical place, this city could have been a great place to visit BUT the municipality fails to maintain the city in even a reasonable condition. The streets and beaches are filthy. No sufficient parking is available. No reasonable restaurants.

Tiberias is a city that has a lot to offer if you like ancient history and archeology. Roman ,bizanteen and Paleolithic men ruins,also a lot of ancient cristian and jewish remains. Its very hot in the summer but there is A.C in every building in israel.

you see a city from ancient times going more and more modern, its something very interesting, while going modern they still maintain the look and feel of the town it used to be........

Tiberias is a nice place on the shores of The Sea Of Gallilee. The city is very busy and then you have the very peaceful calm of The Kinnaret.

It's one of the most beautiful place to see the overview of the Sea of Galilee. However, the downtown area is pretty run down, very poor maintains on the side street, main road, the beaches are not free to walk in or drive. You have to pay the Parking. But, the richness of the history of the bible time is... More

Overall, the lakeside down town area is in pretty poor shape, like most of the hotels, restaurants, infrastructure tourist facilities (e.g. boat rentals, the worst I have seen anywhere). Some serious upgrading and maintenance are long overdue.... The place has a great potential, but a visionary tourist industry strategy, significant overall change in (service) attitude and committed leadership will be... More

We spent two nights here and toured the area. The people are much friendlier and the city is much cleaner than most other cities we visited in Israel (Jericho,Bethlehem, Nazareth, Ramallah). Be certain to take a hotel room that has a window facing the Sea of Galilee so you can watch the sunrise come up over the sea. An enjoyable... More

My wife, newborn child and I came to Tiberias, excited, having not visited there for a long time. We could not have been more appalled by the town's ghastly state of disrepair. This is tragic given, it is the site of the beautiful lake Kinneret (Sea of Gallilee). Firstly the parking lot would only accept Israeli coins, no notes, no... More

Unfortunately Tiberias is a city that lost completely the sense of cleanness and self respect by letting the local vendors destroy the ancient streets and markets near the Port area and more than that letting the city become so dirty. Those restaurants and vendors make prices according to the tourists faces and this goes against any city willing to live... More
