Saw a lot in the final three days. The temperature was 27 degrees and lovely and warm. We went to the River Jordan to see baptisms, visited Mt Tabor and the Basilica of the Transfiguration and Nazareth Village and a reconstruction of 1st Century Galilean...More
I hadn't been to Tiberias for many years, but I always remembered it as a very vibrant place (especially in the promenade area on weekends), full of people and places to go (pubs, restaurants...). What we found here, on a Friday evening, was basically a...More
We spent 6 days in Tiberius and journeyed each day to sights around the Sea of Galilee. The weather was warm so we were grateful for our transport with efficient aircon. I love the history of the area and thoroughly enjoyed walking through so many...More
This is my 5th travel to Israel. I always come to Tveriah. This is my favorite place in Galilee. It is a spiritual and Holy City. Many famous rabbis like rabbi Akiva and rabbi Meir are buried there. The view of Kinneret and the mountains...More
This place is a hard pass. Run down and threadbare.Not sure what the attraction is supposed to be, the waterfront is shabby and almost a caricature of a place that Has seen much better days. Notable exceptions are the accommodations at villa alliance, the beach...More
Stayed in a lovely hotel with great pool, rooms, food and service. Strolled down the promenade and it was dead, dirty and in need of substantial repair. Nothing really to see in the town apart from a lovely old Mosque in need of renovation and...More
We stayed at the Leonardo Plaza. There is no self serve laundry but the hotel has laundry service available. They did a great job and the price was reasonable. You deliver your bag of clothes to the front desk in the morning... More

Get a good Israel Guide Book and wander around yourself. For the past 2 years I travel about Israel for 3 weeks by myself. Interact with the local people, use their bus system, relax and enjoy each day. Use the hostels and grocery stores. The book I use for Galilee area is "The Jesus Trail". Shows where to hike, how long it will take, where to stay. Start in Tiberias and take bus from there. Best place to stay is the Tiberias Casa Nova which is connected to St Peter's Church. Super clean and friendly. Reservations by email or phone.
I have a very reliable resource with a great description of its proximity! If you can walk a mile in ten minutes, then the Horns of Hattin are less than a hour from Tiberias if you were to hike there. I am guess five miles... More

I refer you to p. 180 in "Atlas of the Bible" published by Reader's Digest in 1981. Let me quote the answer in full.
"Jesus also went up from the lakeshore (Sea of Galilee) to the Jewish villages in Lower Galilee. Geography suggests the route that he would have taken. From Capernaum he followed the lakeshore southward through Gennnsaret (10) to Magdala (11), the home of Mary Magdalene. Since the building of Tiberius, Magdala had lost much of its importance, but it still supported a large fishing industry. Westward the path turned up the extraordinary rift leading 860 feet up from the lakeshore to the basalt plateau dominated by the extinct volcano known now as the Horns of Hattin. This rift, called the Valley of Doves, is narrow, steep, and dangerous. Sheer cliffs punctuated by caves tower both sides; the northern wall rises to over 320 feet above seal level while the southern side soars to almost 600 feet above seal level -- or almost 1,300 fee above the surface of the Sea of Galilee." Does that help you? It really does me. I road by this.
