Your packed itinerary starts in Nazareth, the capital of Israel’s north district and reputedly the childhood home of Jesus. Here, you’ll pass St Gabriel Church, which is built on a spring known as Mary’s Well. It’s thought to be the spot where the Virgin Mary was visited by Archangel Gabriel. Next, you’ll check out the Basilica of the Annunciation. A modern Catholic Church, it’s an important stop-off for Holy Land pilgrimages - as is the House of Joseph. Leaving Nazareth behind, you’ll head to village of Kana, the site of the wedding miracle. Departing Kana, you’ll stop for lunch in a restaurant and afterwards we’ll drive to Capernaum on the shores of Galilee. The synagogue and the House of St Peter are both on the sightseeing list here. After that, it’s on to the Mountain of Beatitudes where Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount before heading off to Yardenit on the River Jordan through the city of Tiberias. Once there you can experience the Jordan River Baptismal complex which attracts pilgrims from all around the world.
