Galilee to Jerusalem

by agneszh Online Now Jun 19, 2009 at 5:01 AM


We will go to Sea of Galilee form Tel Aviv and back to Jerusalem. We plan to rent a car, is it possible to go back to Jerusalem from Galilee within one day? the tour line is Sea of Galilee - Nazareth - Yardenit - Jordan Vally(did not find it in map) - Beit Shean - Gideo Spring - Jerusalem?

Where is Church Nain? Is it far from Nazareth?

How much time people need to visit Nazareth? 2 hours or more?

todah! thank you!

    What you are planning is unrealistic for one day. You either need to spend a night in the North or eliminate lots of sites. I assume you want to actually visit and enjoy your list of locations. To do it in one day would mean a drive past and wave out the car window--maybe stopping and running through one or two palces.

    From Jerusalem to Nazareth is about a 2 - 2 1/2 hour drive. You probably want to see the Church of the Annunciation there -- an hour?

    From Nazareth to Tiberias (and the Sea of Galilee) is about another 1/2 hour - 45 minute drive from Nazareth.

    The Jordan River flows into and out of the Sea of Galilee, and you can see it at a number of spots nearby. The Jordan Valley is the area south of Tiberias, which you can drive through on your way back to Jerusalem (the road goes directly from The Sea of Galilee to Jerusalem through the Jordan Valley). It passes right next to Beit Shean.
