Friday

Tel Aviv – Sea of Galilee – Tiberias  

Your tour guide will pick you up from your hotel.

Drive for a visit to Jaffa’s port city (Joppa), where we will take a short walking tour in the picturesque alleys of the old, fortified town. We will pass by the house of Simon the Tanner and marvel at the views from the hilltop.

We drive north along the coastal road – Via Maris, to the archaeological ruins of Caesarea, built by Herod the Great in honor of Augustus Caesar.

From here, we go on to visit Megiddo, where the book of Revelations mentions a great battle at the place called “Armageddon,” an ancient city inhabited continuously for more than five millennia (6000-500 B.C.).

After exploring the ancient ruins, we drive toward the Sea of Galilee, stopping at Cana to visit the Wedding Church where Jesus performed his first miracle, turning water into wine.

Arrive at Tiberias and check in to your hotel.  

Monastery of Saint Gerasimos

Saturday

Sea of Galilee 

Visit the sites on the north shore of the Sea of Galilee, the stage for many of the events in Jesus’ life. 

 

Drive along the shore of the sea to Capernaum – known as “His Town,” the center of Jesus’ ministry where he spent much time healing the sick and performing miracles

 

On to Tabgha, the site of Christ’s miracle of feeding the 5,000, visiting the Church of Multiplication, where the mosaic floor depicts a basket with loaves and two fishes, and the Church of the Primacy of St Peter, commemorating Jesus’ reinstatement of Peter as chief among the Apostles. Continue to the Mount of Beatitudes overlooking the sea, where Jesus preached the “Sermon on the Mount,” and it is believed that he picked his 12 apostles. Ascend to the Golan Heights to view the panoramic view of the peaks of Mt. Hermon and the rugged Golan plateau.  Visit Banias (Caesarea Philippi), one of the sources of the River Jordan, where Jesus took his disciples, revealing His purpose and His Church before his last trip to Jerusalem, and where Simon identified Jesus as the messiah.  Drive to the southern part of the Sea of Galilee to visit the Yardenit Baptismal Site. Return to Tiberias for another night in town.

Sail on a boat on the Sea of Galilee to experience the tranquility and scenery; little changed during the past 2000 years (subject to conditions and fees).

Dead Sea & Masada 

Through the remarkable scenery of the Dead Sea, we travel to Masada, which is situated on an isolated cliff in the Judean Desert. The site was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001.  

 

Ascend by cable car to the fortress, which was the last stronghold of the Jewish Zealots in their war against the Romans. Visit the excavations, King Herod’s palace, the synagogue, bathhouse, and much more. Enjoy the breathtaking view of the Roman camps and the Dead Sea below. 

 

Visit the site of the Qumran Caves, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. 

 

Nearly 1,300 feet below sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on the earth’s surface. Bring your swimsuit as if weather permits; it’s possible to “float” on the salty, mineral-rich water. 

 

Return to Jerusalem for overnight.

Monastery of Saint Gerasimos

Tuesday

Jerusalem

Start the day at the Israel Museum’s Shrine of the Book with the famous Dead Sea scrolls, then a visit to the beautifully renovated Model of the Herodian city of Jerusalem, dating back to the time of the Second Temple.  

 

Enjoy Ein Karem, a picturesque village on the southwestern outskirts of Jerusalem. This small village has great significance in Christian traditions since this is where according to tradition, John the Baptist was born. 

 

Visit Yad Vashem, the official memorial to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust, established in 1953, located at the foot of Mt. Hertzl.
