Nazareth: One Day in the Capital of the Galilee

Israel, Nazareth Guide (B): Nazareth: One Day in the Capital of the Galilee

Everybody has heard of Nazareth before. Famous for being the hometown of Jesus, this Arab city located in the northern district of Israel has nothing to do with the small provincial town described in the scriptures. Today, Nazareth is bustling with tourists and pilgrims travelling from the seven corners of the world to visit its main attraction: the Church of the Annunciation. During my trip to the Holy Land, I spent a full day exploring the capital of the Galilee. Check out what I found during my visit!

Nazareth is one of the main cities in the Galilee region in northern Israel, so it is quite easy to get there from most of the country. I was travelling from Tel Aviv, so I took the 826 Egged bus from Tel Aviv Central Station and got there in about 2h30m. Buses run quite frequently, but it's always worth to check the schedule in advance on bus.co.il, the official website of Israel's Public Transportation Centre. 

If you're based on the north coast of Israel, there are also frequent routes from Haifa and Akko (buses 331 and 962 respectively). Surprisingly, there's only two afternoon buses per day from Jerusalem, so I'd highly recommend to organise your visit from a different city, where you'll be able to find much better connections and the travelling time is also shorter. ......
