    Nazareth is a popular destination for Christian pilgrims, though if you are interested in viewing famous sights such as Mary's Well, Joseph's workshop, the Basilica of the Annunciation, and many other locations of archaeological and religious importance, you'll enjoy a trip to Nazareth.

    You can easily tour Nazareth on foot, as the Old City is quite compact, and see sights such as the domed Basilica of the Annunciation, which is the largest Christian church in the Middle East.

    Other points of interest include the Greek Orthodox Bishopric located in Bishop's Square and, nearby, an interesting collection of buildings built in the style of Venetian palazzos, a nice contrast to the other restored buildings in the Old Town.
