The Sea of Galilee is one of Israel's most loved landmarks. The turquoise water, surrounded by lovely agricultural settlements, looks like a jewel in the middle of the Israeli landscape—serene, yet majestic. It is also one of the most important sites in the Bible - home to four of the disciples and where Jesus is believed to have performed some of his most famous miracles, including walking on water. The Sea of Galilee is a freshwater lake on the border between Israel and Syria, and is the largest freshwater lake on Earth and the second-lowest lake in the world (after the Dead Sea, a saltwater lake).
This natural phenomenon is a tranquil, beautiful place to stop and unwind on a road trip through Israel. Relax on the shore of the Sea of Galilee or take a ride on a large wooden boat, which you can board to experience an authentic glimpse into biblical times. The journey will pass through Capernaum and Bethsaida, two towns that are mentioned in both the Old and New Testaments.
