Very well preserved, these walls are 1600 years old! Extraordinary place, dont miss it while touring Israel. It was part of the program of the group tour we took in May and loved every inch of it !

Despite of the large number of groups / coaches (we were part of one...) it is worth to visit this place. The ruins of buildings from the times Jesus lived there are impressive. Nice view to the Sea of Galilee.

As a place of Christ ministry, it was worth experiencing to walk where Jesus performed most of His miracles. This is an outdoor activity that you will need caps, hats and umbrellas.

This place is better with a guide, but the brochure for sale is very helpful. Make sure you are dressed appropriately. For ladies, no tank tops or shorts. There are great views of the Sea of Galilee. Take time to wander in the ruins!

Awesome to stand and remember how Jesus showed himself to his disciples after his resurrection. Truly breathtaking
