It would be a mistake to believe that Israel is suitable only for pilgrimage and an excursion-rich holiday. In addition to trips to holy places, in Israel you can have a wonderful rest on the sea coast, enjoy spa treatments at medical resorts and walk around trendy restaurants and bars in the colorful Tel Aviv. In order to diversify your vacation and add new colors to the trip, rent a car and create your ideal Israel route that has so much to offer tourists.
One of the four holy cities for Jews, spread out on the western shore of Lake Tiberias. In addition to the national shrines (the tombs of the Jewish thinker Rambam, Rabbi Johan Ben-Zakai and Rabbi Akiva), there is the medical resort Khamei Tiberias. Massages, dives in pools with hot mineral water, baths using therapeutic mud “Piloma” - this is only a small part of the list of wellness treatments that will increase your vitality and give a feeling of lightness and renewal. The most convenient way to get to Tiberias is with a rented car, which you can park in one of the local parking lots.
