This is a nice little village by the shores of Lake Galilee. I think this is actually a resort village and closed during the winter, because it was dead when I visited. In truth, I really only came here to stand on the shores of...More

I am reviewing the Ginosar Museum and not the village since the important and most recommended issue is this special museum. The special item is a boat dating from the days Jesus stayed in that area. The boat has been found in the water of...More

This is not a luxury hotel. It is basic, and popular among the locals. Has a very nice breakfast menu, and it is right off of the beach. There is also a very nice museum attached to the property with art and archaeological exhibits, including...More
