Nazareth

— 2 nights

Arab Capital of Israel

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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation and Mt. of Precipice Lookout Point. Step out of Nazareth to go to Acre and see Ghattas Turkish Bath, which is approximately 50 minutes away. There's still lots to do: do a tasting at Netofa Winery, take a stroll around Liwan Culture Cafe, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Franciscan Wedding Church, and steep yourself in history at Cana.

To find more things to do, reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Nazareth sightseeing site.

Tel Aviv to Nazareth is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. In March in Nazareth, expect temperatures between 24°C during the day and 17°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Wed) so you can drive to Safed.
