Wow. Not enough information.
The best route and time is to use waze or google maps.
To answer the other question, you need to reveal why you chose there & what your interests areEdited: 27 August 2017, 00:35
Tel Aviv to Tiberias is close to a 2 hour drive nonstop but could be longer depending on traffic. I agree to consult with Google maps online to check for best route and driving time. Be sure to check when it is the hour you plan to leave in Israel (i. e. 1a.m.EST for 8 a. m. departure Israel time). There is very little to see/do in Tiberias but lots on the way and nearby. Do you want hikes, religious sites,museums, etc?
I love the experience of the circuit around the lake, which is a full day when you include stops at the interesting sites. But that includes sites of interest primarily to Christians -- is that what you are interested in? Or there are lots of sites of natural interest -- the Arbel cliffs or Tel Dan and Banias to the north. Tell us more and we can more helpfully guide you.
Tiberias isn't an attractive town. There are more beautiful places near the lake where you can base yourselves for touring Christian sites. Vered HaGalil is one. Kibbutz Nof Ginosar is also recommended. You'd be advised to select another base.
Tiberias is a city which missed its heyday. It is a great location for touring the north, has water sports options, some nice places to eat and fantastic views of the Sea of Galilee. If you want to stay in a city, no problem. If you prefer a more rural place you can stay in a Kibbutz guesthouse. If you are using public transportation stay in Tiberias for better transportation accessibility. If you are driving, it is irrelevant where you stay as you have a car. The kibbutz hotels have programs in the evening, like those in Tiberias. It just depends on what you are looking for.
Thanks so much Chana and Jebus. We'll have a car for this portion of our trip. I'll post furthe ron my thread.
The local people never seem to like Tiberias but I have always enjoyed staying there.
The hotels mentioned on this thread are quite a bit more expensive than some that are quite acceptable in Tiberias, so that's another consideration.
Tiberias is a bit of a bottleneck but they had altered the road system there on our last trip and it was much better.
If one has a car so not tied to proximity to public transport what other areas offer good value for money to see Christian relevant sites in the north?
