King Herod Antipas built the city of Tiberias on the Sea of Galilee to win favor from the Roman Emperor Tiberias. It was a splendid resort city for the Romans as a place where they could enjoy "Roman life" without offending the local Jews. Today it is a modern city and is still a resort stop on the way through Israel.
