During your private tour to Jewish Galilee you will have the opportunity to visit many sites of interest. Start your private tour at the Kinneret, or the Sea of Galilee, and its nearby city Tiberias. Originally this was a first century pagan city which was built by Herod Antipas alongside the Jewish city of Hamat. Today, Tiberias is a small city, but remaining excavations can be viewed in the archaeological park. In Hamat, a well-preserved mosaic is housed in a fifth/sixth century synagogue inside a national park. Tiberias is also home to the tombs and graves of many famous Rabbi’s including the twelfth century Jewish philosopher, Maimonides as well as Rabbi Meir Ba’al HaNes. Have your personal guide explain the importance of the Capernaum and Bethsaida to both Jewish and Christian heritage.
Continue you on your private tour to Kibbutz Ginossar, home to the Yigal Alon Museum where the exterior of a restored boat sits on display on the shores of the Kinneret. Tour the exhibition telling the story of the early twentieth century pioneers who came and established the first kibbutzim in the area. Next on your tour, stop at the Kinneret cemetery, where famous poet Rachel and songwriter Naomi Shemer are buried. Take a short drive to the excavations at Zippori. This was a prominent city in 1 BCE, which is remarkable as it has no natural springs or water source. The population did not participate in the Jewish revolt of 67 CE and so was spared destruction. As such, some magnificent mosaics and structures have been maintained. The mosaic floor in the villa, the floor of the synagogue and inside an unidentified complex of rooms depict unusual images in over 20 colors. A fabulous way to finish your private tour and a sight not to be missed.
