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.

A historical town right on the edge of Sea of Galilee. It has maintained its small town character but modernized.
