What To Expect

This tour to Nazareth from Haifa port starts with an hour-long drive through the breathtaking countryside of northern Israel. On route, you’ll get views of Jezreel Valley which is mentioned in the Bible as the site of Armageddon. In Nazareth, Jesus’ hometown, we tour the Church of the Annunciation where the Angel Gabrial appeared to Mary and told her she would bear God’s son. Visit the Church of St. Joseph, and go beneath the church to a 1st-century grotto which may have been the Holy Family’s home and Joseph’s carpentry. Leaving Nazareth we pass Mary’s Well and Kfar Kana, (Cana) where Jesus turned water into wine.

The next stop is at the Mount of Beatitudes overlooking the Sea of Galilee. On this picturesque hill stands an eight-sided church designed by Antonio Barluzzi. It marks the site of the Sermon on the Mount. Next, we travel to the Church of the Multiplication of Loaves and Fish in Tabgha. This is the traditional site where Jesus fed the masses (Mark 6:30-46). The church has a stunning 5th-century floor mosaic. The tour visits Kfar Nachum, the biblical town of Capernaum, where Jesus based himself during his ministry and where he performed several miracles.

We stop for lunch at a local restaurant and then continue to Yardenit. This famous baptismal site on the Jordan River welcomes over half a million tourists each year. Time permitting, you could be baptized here in the Jordan River. As we leave Galilee, we pass the Horns of Hattin, twin peaks famed as the site of an 1187 battle between Saladin and the Crusaders. After a day packed with the most important Christian sites in Galilee, you are returned to your cruise ship in Haifa port.
