Nazareth and the Galilee region is full with Christian sites of interest. Begin your private tour to the Galilee by visiting Nazareth where there are several biblically historic places to see. Start at the Church of Annunciation, where the angel Gabriel appeared before Mary (Luke 1:26). Close by is the Church of St. Josephs and the carpentry shop. Continue your tour by visiting the Greek Orthodox Church and the adjoining well. Walk through the markets in town, and as a last stop, visit the Greek Catholic Church. A short drive away, is the Mount of Precipitation. It is believed that this was the site of the rejection of Jesus, “they lead him to the brow of the hill … that they might throw him down” (Luke 4:28-30). From here, enjoy panoramic views over the Jezreel valley. Continue on to Cana, where Jesus performed the miracle of turning water to wine.
As you arrive in Tiberias, enjoy a boat ride across the Sea of Galilee, imagining how Jesus walked on these waters. Continuing on your Galilee private, will be a visit to the Capernaum, the home of Peter and the nearby Benedictine Church, where Jesus multiplied the loaves and fish, and then onto Mensa Christi, where Jesus made his final revelation. Continue along the shore to the Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus delivered his Sermon on the Mount (Mat 5), and then on to Yardenit, where you can choose to be baptized in the Jordan River. If there is still time on your Galilee custom tour, then you can ascend Mount Tabor, to the Church of the Transfiguration, the remains at Bethsaida and to Megiddo, where you will see the plain of Armageddon. This is your tailor-made tour so you can decide which of the many places you choose to visit!
