Our day will start with a drive to the north, and a stop at the great city of Akko.
For those coming on cruise excursions, make sure to stop by the port of Akko to save unnecessary travel and make the most out of your day!
Here we shall pay a visit to the Knight Halls, known also as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
By descending one floor of steps, we will meet the 900-year-old Crusader Halls’ remains the tunnels, the halls, the quarter and much more.
The contemporary, so-called: “Old city” was constructed about 250 years ago.
Strolling the Oriental market, observing the domes of the mosque, and heading to the Old Port will give you some of the Turkish/Arabic insight of this city.
If time permits, we will visit in the incredible Tunisian Synagogue, a certain one-of-a-kind in the world.
Following this, we will visit Rosh Hanikra. Here, we encounter the breathtaking limestone grottos, on the border with Lebanon, and along the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea.
Our next stop is the beautiful city Haifa. Haifa has one of the most breathtaking views in Israel, and the marvelous Bahai Gardens are gorgeous, to say the least. Here you will listen to an explanation of this special religion, about the city, and its many cultural points.
For those interested in other venues, instead of Rosh Hanikra, you may choose to visit Caesarea. This city, built by Herod the Great 2,000 years ago, provided its citizens with a formidable port, and innovations such as flowing tap water to houses.
It features a spectacular Roman Theater, ruins of the ancient port, and rich history of both, Jewish and Christian events.
It can be seen from the wondrous, impressive ruins of the place.
Finally, the visit includes the romantic aqueduct that leads water in ancient times to Caesarea.
An alternative option is available for more adventurous travelers to have an archaeological dive in Caesarea.
