Shore Experiences by Seabourn: Nazareth Highlights & the Sea of Galilee, A Mindful Living Tour

Nazareth

Guests depart the Haifa pier for a one-hour drive through the Jezre'el Valley to Nazareth, childhood home of Jesus. The City of the Annunciation, Nazareth is revered as the spot where the angel Gabriel appeared to Mary, telling her that she would bear the Son of God. The visit includes the Church of the Annunciation, built on the site where Mary lived and where she received Gabriel’s message.

Guests will also see the Church of St Joseph, dedicated to the earthly father of Jesus, built where Joseph’s carpentry workshop is believed to have stood. Below ground level, an important Judeo-Christian baptismal basin is preserved.

Drive on via Cana, where Jesus performed his first miracle turning water into wine at a wedding, to the Sea of Galilee, where guests will enjoy lunch.

In the afternoon, we drive to Tabgha to visit the Church of Peter’s Primacy by the lake, and Capernaum, St Peter’s village. Guests will see the ancient synagogue where Jesus taught and St Peter’s house. The tour continues to the Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus gave his Sermon on the Mount, and then to the Yardenit baptismal site on the Jordan River.

After exploring the Galilee region, guests return to the ship.
