Tiberias

THE RON BEACH HOTEL

Website: http://ronbeachhotel.com/

Description: This is, by far, my favorite hotel in Israel. This family run hotel is managed by two of the grandsons of the original owner. While many hotels in Tiberias are a couple of blocks from the shore of the Sea of Galilee, this hotel sits directly on the shore. We will spend three nights here and I assure you that you will not want to leave. While we are there, the sun will not set until after 7:30. This will give you plenty of time to eat dinner and then grab a chair and relax as darkness falls across the lake. No need to request a special room since every room in the hotel faces the Sea of Galilee. 

We will eat breakfast and dinner every day while we stay there. The food at the Ron Beach is some of the best you will eat while we are in Israel. 

I could go on and on about this hotel, but I won't. Seriously, I love staying at this hotel. When I travel with the Appian Media team to Israel, we always stay here. In fact, a number of the introduction scenes and interviews were filmed at the Ron Beach.

Resources

2018 Tour Book - This 27-page document consists of a number of sections and contains information about all aspects of the tour. I highly encourage you to read this document now and then reread portions of it in the final weeks leading up to the tour. In the final month before a tour, I typically receive a number of questions from travelers. Most of those questions are already answered in this tour book. I am happy to answer any questions that you may have. But, you might be able to save yourself some time by consulting this tour book first. 


Interesting Links

Western Wall Live Webcam - During the first century BC, King Herod greatly enlarged the Temple Mount and rebuilt the temple. The Western Wall is the holiest site in Judaism as it is the closest that the Jewish people can get to the original site of the temple. This camera will be pointed at the Western Wall 24 hours a day, except on the Shabbat. 

Zefat Live Webcam - The city of Zefat (Sefad) is about 5 miles north of the Sea of Galilee. Most of the modern population of Zefat is Jewish. This camera is pointed southwest toward the hills of Lower Galilee. When it is clear, you can see the northwestern corner of the Sea of Galilee on the left hand side of the screen. The lights going up the hill from the sea is the modern city of Tiberias. 

Mount Bental Live Webcam - Mount Bental is located in the Golan Heights about 3 miles west of the border with Syria. This camera is facing northwest. When it is clear, you can see Mount Hermon on the right hand side of the screen. Mount Hermon rises over 9,000 feet in elevation and sits on the border of Israel, Syria, and Lebanon. The Biblical cities of Dan and Caesarea Philippi sit toward the base of Mount Hermon.
