The Galilee - Past and Present
Using the Sea of Galilee (Kinneret) as a starting point we can move off in each cardinal direction discovering a fascinating mix of culture and history. For the traveler that wants to look at things differently. . . . that is willing to meet what's there without rhyme or reason - just the way they developed through history.
This area encompasses 3 thousand years of history and many religions. The rift valley connecting Africa, Asia and Europe, has made this the all time major highway of the world, with the Sea of Galilee right in the middle.
We'll discuss your itinerary, customizing it to your interests in each direction. I hope you'll book three more days and discover what every "Direction" has to offer.
