This is a must for any visitor to Israel. The Yardenit baptism site to the south where the Jordan leaves the "Kinneret" is evocative and Tiberias itself is a mixture of ancient and modern. There is a variety of choice for hotels and eateries, as well as shops, a fun evening market and a great light show. Moving up the shore, Magdala is worth noting. Then the powerful sites of Mensa Christi, Tabgha and the Mount of Beatitudes bring the bible alive. The ancient fishing boat at Nof Ginosar is worth a look. Capernaum is another special place. A trip on a fishing boat is a "must do" and the stillness on the sea when the boat stops for a time, is powerful. From the lake, the sites of Jesus ministry and the Horns of Hittite where the crusaders lost to Salahadin bring history alive, and make quite an impression. Lunch at Kibbutz Ein Gev often means a battle with the bony St Peter's fish. To the north a rubber boat ride down the rapids, skiing on Mount Hermon or simply viewing the Golan heights, or visiting Banias, the former Caesarea Philippi all make for a marvellous trip.
