Israel Photo Gallery – Galilee Region
Travelog and interesting stories from Israel published under the Scrolls from the holy land series.
To the north east of Israel and bordering the Golan heights territory next to Syria is the Galilee region – very quiet and tranquil and home to a number of religious sites. The best way to visit the places around the Sea of Galilee is to rent a bike and go on a one-day tour. It was by far the most fun adventure I had in Israel.
Beit She’an and Tsfat are other two places of interest nearby which are conveniently connected to Tiberias by bus. Day trip should be enough I reckon unless you are interested in the mystical aspect of the Kabbalah tradition in Judaism in which case Safed is the place to be.
