Tiberias is an ancient city that has ruins and interesting sites arround it - especially Rabbi graves. This is a nice location "on the way". I would not recommend staying a night there unless you want to visit the thermo baths nearby.

Extremely important town for Christians pilgrimage sites, located in the center of many holy places, like Tabgha, Church of the Beatitudes, Church of the Multiplication, Kfar Nahum (Capernaum) National Park and many more attractions. There are few hotels and some very nice flats for rent, I will be more than happy to advise.

Nice town, but a bit tourist resorty. I was there in December 2016 and it was very much like an out of season holiday resort. Glad not to be there in high season. It has a really good tourist office with staff who are very knowledgable about the history and geography of the area and who are able to advise... More

Tiberias is a perfect base from which to explore the Galilee area. Nowhere is far. We found a small apartment and stayed 4 nights which gave us chance to walk around Tiberias, which is just full of historical sites, as well as travel further afield. There is also a little souk to buy fresh fruit and veggies and plenty of... More

I had stayed here for a couple of days on the tour of the holyland. The place seems to be nice. Visited some shops for souverins. But the cost was too much and they demand to be paid in american dollars and the prices were more than like 500 percentage dor tourists.

We disliked this town. It's very run down and traffic can be chaotic. We recommend that you stay elsewhere along the Sea of Galillee shores.
