A high view of the Sea is wonderful. A boat ride is awe inspiring. The expanse is impressive. To be on the actual Sea where the New Testament describes many of His works is indescribable.

Sermon on the Mount, miracle of the loaves and fishes, it's all here, with churches and interesting sights. The scenery is magnificent. Well worth the trip up from the south.

I have almost been to 4 countries this year and Israel (especially Sea of Galilee) has by far been the most favourite. There is something so peaceful and serene about staying where Jesus performed one of his many miracles. If you wish to stay at...More
