Thus is s larger city on the southern banks of the Sea of Galilee. There are quite a few places along the sea to find lodging, but this city would be recommended due to its larger size, and still in proximity to the religious sites.
While I didn't hate Tiberias, there is little to recommend in the town except one decent hotel and one decent restaurant of which I will leave separate reviews. The only thing that is going for this town is it's location - on the Sea Of...More

We stayed at the Leonardo Plaza. There is no self serve laundry but the hotel has laundry service available. They did a great job and the price was reasonable. You deliver your bag of clothes to the front desk in the morning... More

I have a very reliable resource with a great description of its proximity! If you can walk a mile in ten minutes, then the Horns of Hattin are less than a hour from Tiberias if you were to hike there. I am guess five miles... More

I refer you to p. 180 in "Atlas of the Bible" published by Reader's Digest in 1981. Let me quote the answer in full.
"Jesus also went up from the lakeshore (Sea of Galilee) to the Jewish villages in Lower Galilee. Geography suggests the route that he would have taken. From Capernaum he followed the lakeshore southward through Gennnsaret (10) to Magdala (11), the home of Mary Magdalene. Since the building of Tiberius, Magdala had lost much of its importance, but it still supported a large fishing industry. Westward the path turned up the extraordinary rift leading 860 feet up from the lakeshore to the basalt plateau dominated by the extinct volcano known now as the Horns of Hattin. This rift, called the Valley of Doves, is narrow, steep, and dangerous. Sheer cliffs punctuated by caves tower both sides; the northern wall rises to over 320 feet above seal level while the southern side soars to almost 600 feet above seal level -- or almost 1,300 fee above the surface of the Sea of Galilee." Does that help you? It really does me. I road by this.
