Our secrets of the Galilee and Nazareth Tour will provide an insider’s view of the green Galilee region, home to ancient traditions, where every hilltop boasts another innovative idea. We’ll start on the beaten track with a tour of the city of Nazareth, the ‘capital of the Galilee’ including the iconic Church of the Annunciation, before delving into the city’s mosaic of rich culinary and craft traditions. Famous for its bakeries and sweets shops, we’ll get a taste of its treasures. The tour includes a visit to an Arab crafts collective featuring a collection of embroideries and traditional objects with an explanation by an expert. Not far away is the ancient city of Sepphoris with its remarkable variety of exquisite Roman and Byzantine mosaics; and inspired by nature, we’ll concoct our own cosmetic creams from organic Galilee grown herbs at the home of an internationally renowned cosmetics company born in the Galilee. Visit a Moshav, the unique community of Nahalal, to learn about anther form of agricultural community in Israel, distinctly different from the famous Kibbutz
