Nazareth and Galilee

Travel to Galilee - Israel's luscious region and the scene of Christ's youth. Here Jesus was baptized, preached and performed many of His miracles. Visit these sacred sites.

Visit the bank revered by the faithful as the spot where John the Baptist immersed Jesus in the waters of the Jordan. Then, continue to the Mount of Beatitudes - Christ delivered the Sermon on the Mount from this hill. In 2000, Pope John-Paul II celebrated the Eucharist on its slope. From the terrace of the domed Catholic Church, founded in 1937, there are splendid views of the Sea of Galilee. Then visit Tabgha - The Church of the Multiplication is believed to occupy the site where Christ performed His miracle with two fish and five loaves. Consecrated in 1981, the current shrine protects a beautiful 5th century Byzantine mosaic floor depicting the miracle.

Your tour continues to Capernaum - The "centre" of Jesus ministry in the Galilee. A guided walking tour visits the ruined synagogue where Christ preached.

Nestled in a circle of cypress studded hills, Nazareth is the scene of Jesus' youth. Visit the Basilica of the Annunciation, consecrated in 1969, the largest Christian Church in the Middle East is said to mark the grotto where the Archangel Gabriel appeared to the Virgin. After a sightseeing of the area and a photo opportunity of the Sea of Galilee, your tour will return to the ship.
