On the shores of Galilee itself lies Tabgha - site of the Sermon on the Mount and the feeding of the 5,000 where you can visit the Mount and the Churches of the Multiplication of the Loaves and the Primacy of St Peter and Capernaum, the birthplace of St. Peter and believed to be the site where Jesus started his ministry.
