This could be the place where Jesus pronounced the Beatitudes.The Beatitudes are eight blessings recounted by Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount in the Gospel of Matthew. Each is a proverb-like proclamation. The Mount of Béatitudes is the best viewpoint over the northern part...More

Actual site where our Lord spoke to his followers in the Sermon of the Mount. Great overlook and the peace one finds here can only bring one to relive what Jesus and his followers must have felt.

Mount of Beatitudes - overlooking the Sea of Galilee - believed to be the setting for Jesus' most famous discourse: the Sermon on the Mount - it would be one of the most beautifully serene places if it weren't for the crowds! It wasn't tooooo...More

Very crowded with no place for crowds to go. Church is nothing special. View of lake is decent but nothing amazing. If you decide to go just block off a quick twenty minute visit. Not much more needed.

I was not particularly impressed with the church building because it was built in modern times. This is an area where Jesus is reputed to have given the Sermon on the Mount. The grounds and gardens are nicely maintained. The area was quite crowded so...More

The crowds. That does me in usually. The site is fine but the crowds are tough to love. Further, this is one of several places where the Sermon on the Mount may have happened. This is a guess at best. The entire place is altered...More

They maintain the grounds well and it is beautiful. But it is crowded and very commercial. Your guide will make a huge difference in your experience.

Hi, Israel is usually super-safe. Just consider that January can be cold, especially in the north. The distance you intend to cover is quite short and there are plenty of people doing same. So eventually you do not feel safe... More

Itinerary 15 days in Israel & Petra - first visit (11 Replies)
Hi there, I'm planning a very last minute solo trip to Israel leaving this Saturday, and I wanted to ask for some advice on the itinerary I have in mind. I have to mention that I'm a very hectic traveller, meaning: I don't really need much time to relax and can easily spend 10-12h a day visiting a city. I'm mentioning this because I normally tend to pack as much as possible, but still try to enjoy the places that I visit. As you can see, I'm planning to book a few tours to visit as many...More

A couple of very quick notes: I assume you're planning to take the Abraham Tours Petra trip. If so, don't go back from the North to Jerusalem - they use the northern border crossing by Beit Shean to get to Jordan, so stay in the north and meet them there rather than backtracking on a long bus ride to Jerusalem and back. There is a youth hostel in Beit Shean, convenient for the border - and it has a swimming pool, which you could put to good use during the 4 hours or so you'll save on the bus...More
