Israel tour guide > Galilee

The Galilee

Galilee is the northern most part of the modern day state of Israel. It is commonly divided into Upper Galilee in the north where the dominating mountain ranges border with Lebanon and Syria, and Lower Galilee in the south. This lush and mountainous region stretches from the Sea of Galilee and the Hula Valley in the east to the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean in the west. Galilee offers Israel's most fertile farmland. The rich soil, springs, waterfalls and mineral baths promote a much-admired diversity of flora and fauna protected by numerous National Parks and nature reserves.

The region is steeped in ancient history and it is no surprise that the country's most extensive archaeological site is to be found here. Beit She'an holds the secrets of past civilisations. A preserved Roman Amphitheatre and Byzantine baths stand in the midst of other splendid finds. For the Christian pilgrim or tourist this is the land where Jesus grew up and did most of his ministry.

However, Galilee also revels in the modern world. The mineral baths of Tiberius and other spa towns are a splendid way to relieve the stresses of the modern world. The snow capped Mount Hermon, in the very north of the country, offers the only skiing, while Caesaria Philipi is home to the only 18-hole golf course in the country.
SEA OF GALILEE

The Sea of Galilee or Lake Kinnerot as it is known in Hebrew is the main source of water for Israel. Its sparkling blue waters have often been likened to an earthly Garden of Eden, and on its beautiful banks visitors can explore a fascinating array of historical sites, religious shrines, or follow exquisite nature trails on foot or horseback. And afterwards, what better way to relax and relieve the stresses of the world than bathing in one of the many hot springs?
