Itinerary Nazareth and the Galilee

Start the tour by being collected from your hotel in Jerusalem at 05:50 ( for an extra fee ), or from Tel Aviv at 07:15. Drive past Netanya and Hertzeliya, traveling north and drive through the Armageddon plain. There will be a view of Megiddo, and we will stop at the Mount of Precipitation.

As we continue, view the Golan Heights in the background, and pass Tiberias, the modern city that was built over 2000 years ago and was named after the Roman emperor Tiberuis.
For those who wish there will be a chance to be baptized with the waters of the Jordan River.

On the way back we will pass the site of the Transfiguration, at Mount Tabor.
