Tiberias Tiberias, Israel
Tiberias is a major tourist destination in Israel. It's positioned on the western side of the Sea of Galilee and is a popular spot for Israeli and international tourists alike.

Many people also use Tiberias as a jumping off point to explore the Golan Heights area.

Tiberias has a population of about 42,000. Most of the population is Jewish, as the majority of the Arab population was evacuated under British military protection in 1948. The city has an elevation of between -200 and 200 meters. The climate is a hot summer, Mediterranean climate combined with a hot semi-arid climate. The summers are very hot with highs climbing to around 97 degrees Fahrenheit and lows only dropping to 70 degrees Fahrenheit. The winters are mild and pleasant with temperatures ranging from 65 degrees Fahrenheit to 46 degrees Fahrenheit.

These include Rambam's Tomb, the Church & Monastery of the Apostles, the tomb of Rabbi Moshe Ben Maimon, St Peter's Church, the Citadel, the Jewish Court, the Berko Park, the Khan, Al-Amari Mosque, the Tomb of Meir Ba'al Hanes, and the Antiquities Museum. Tiberias is also a fascinating place to observe Israelis on vacation. You'll see all types, from Hasidic Jews to Muslims and the nonreligious all intermingling and enjoying a vacation on the lake's shores.
Much of ancient and medieval Tiberias was destroyed by earthquakes and the majority of the construction prior to 1934 was wiped out by a flood. Following the Six-Day War there was wide scale development in the area including the construction of a waterfront promenade, the creation of parkland and shopping streets, and the development of restaurants and modern hotels. The remaining historic buildings, including several churches, two mosques, and several synagogues were preserved. There are also several remaining parts of the ancient wall, the Ottoman-era citadel and several other historic buildings.

One popular activity in Tiberias is to rent a bike and cycle around the lake. The trip is approximately 60 kilometers and takes close to a full day if you stop off at some sights along the way. If the weather is particularly hot, or you're not in the best shape, it is recommended that you get up early to begin your trip before the heat of the day. There are some great swimming beaches on the other side of the lake that can offer you a refreshing place to cool off and rest your legs. Also around the lake are some interesting sights that are of religious significance. These include Capernaum with the House of Peter, Kinnarot Cemetery, and Tabgha, where the Feeding of Multitude occurred.

Other activities around Tiberias include walking along the promenade, visiting the City Spa which has thermal and sulphur pools, and taking a swim in the lake.

Biking Around the Sea of Galilee

By backpackguru
Many people recommend biking around the Sea of Galilee. This is a great way to see all of the sites around the lake, and it gives you an opportunity to take a plunge at one of the beaches on the other side of the lake. This is where most of the best swimming beaches are. You can rent a bike from most of the hotels and hostels around town for a reasonable price. It can be a longer bike ride than you expect. Some guidebooks mistakenly say it's an easy half day ride, while others say it requires to days. The reality is, if you're in descent shape it can be done in a day (but only a half day if you're in excellent shape and don't stop). You do need to get up and leave early to get back before the sunset and have time to linger at the sites. There are a few restaurants where you can grab lunch on the other side of the lake. Definitely take some time to swim, but don't misjudge the amount of time it will take you to get back. It can be a long ride.
