Tiberias was founded in 20 CE on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee. Ancient Tiberias was an important regional and Jewish center, especially in Jewish history.
Modern Tiberias is built over its mediavel remains, and combines hotels, restaurants and pedestrian malls amidst synagogues and mosques from the Ottoman times, and tomb marks of various Rabbis, such as the Tomb mark of “Tomb of Rabbi Akiva“ , “Tomb of Rabbi Me’ir Ba’al Hanes” , “Tomb of the Matriarchs” , Rabbi Yochanan ben Zakai, and the Tomb of Maimonides .
