Nazareth ©
Known worldwide as the hometown of Jesus Christ, Nazareth draws flocks of pilgrims who come to see the place where Christ grew up, and follow his footsteps along the Jesus Trail.
Appreciate the collections at Beit Hankin and Nurit Gallery. Step out of the city life by going to Bet She'an National Park and Banias Waterfall. Venture out of the city with trips to Sea of Galilee (in Tiberias), Acre (Citadel of Acre & Bahai Gardens and Shrine) and Capernaum (The Beatitude Monastery, Mount of Beatitudes, &more). And it doesn't end there: delve into the distant past at Tel Megiddo National Park, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at International Center Mary of Nazareth, admire the striking features of The Church of the Annunciation, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Franciscan Wedding Church.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Nazareth trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
