Winter

Winter time at the Sea of Galilee is pleasant. Temperatures are not too low, and despite the rainfall it is an ideal season for sports competitions. The annual Tiberias Marathon begins at Tiberias; runners pass through Tzemah, reach Ein Gev, and return to Tiberias. Winter is also a good season to taste the delicacies of the various unique eateries located around the Sea of Galilee. On weekends tourist sites are open all night long, and guided tours for families take place in sites around the Sea of Galilee.
Nazareth is at its festive best at Christmas time. Unique, colorful festivals celebrating Christmas and New Year’s Eve are held over the course of two weeks. The festivities culminate with the Midnight Mass, celebrated at the Basilica of the Annunciation on December 24. On this day the traditional holiday procession is held along the main road leading to the Basilica. This fascinating procession is attended by numerous, elaborately-attired clerics, and draws thousands of pilgrims from across the world. The procession concludes with a breathtaking fireworks show. On December 26 another magnificent procession takes place – that of Christ the Child; beginning at the Mensa Christi Church, it is concluded with a grand service at the Basilica.
  • Every year, in honor of Tu B’shvat the valleys celebrate the Tastes Festival.
    When the valleys all wear white and pink of the trees, and around there are many colors of the blossoming of anemones, groundsels and chiles, restaurants and coffee shops integrate for wonderful meal campaigns accompanied with a wine glass that can wake up the bears from their sleep. The meals’ low rice and the appetizing menus draw many dinners to the Tastes Week in the Valleys celebrations.
    The valleys celebrate in song, playing, arts fair, interesting tours in the dairies, wineries and agricultural farms. A celebration for all the family.
