Israel & the Palestinian Territories - Lower Galilee & Sea of Galilee (Chapter)
This is the Lower Galilee & Sea of Galilee chapter from Lonely Planet’s Israel guidebook.
Green, lush and chilly in winter and parched in summer (you can beat the heat in the Sea of Galilee), this is where Jesus of Nazareth lived, preached and is believed to have performed some of his most famous miracles. But these days even Nazareth is much more than a place of Christian pilgrimage – it now boasts one of Israel’s most sophisticated dining scenes.
