A tiny sleepy little town next to the Sea of Galilee and one can go around this town and enjoy the beautiful sights from different places

Tiberias is a great little town for tourism. We feel at home here. The people are friendly and helpful. We recommend staying here when traveling in the north of Israel.

Let me try to set the visual stage for what one sees upon arrival... if you are from the US imagine one of the older, aging family style resort towns that were built and boomed in the Roaring 50's and into the '60s- and that...More

Not much to say about Tiberias except that it is the big city on the Sea of Galilee. It's a nice spot from which to take day trips into the mountains. Religious sites, ruins and other things of interest abound in the region.

Tiberias is kind of a run down town but there is so much history in the area that we stayed here while in Israel while we were on a side trip up north. Decent tourist shopping and lots of good food.

The harbor area is quite dirty and very quiet during daytime - nothing much to see. There are several cafes at the waterfront with ice cream and coffee... Parking by the big hotels is possible.

If you are looking for rest calmness and unique experiences then I don't think that's the place. The area turned to be very touristic with no authentic culturally related activities maintained.

I have a very reliable resource with a great description of its proximity! If you can walk a mile in ten minutes, then the Horns of Hattin are less than a hour from Tiberias if you were to hike there. I am guess five miles... More
