ISRAEL’S COAST – ANCIENT PORTS
Ancient City of Caesarea Ruins. The Caesarea National Park contains the remains of a prestigious city established by King Herod the Great. Prepare to be amazed when you visit the mighty Roman Amphitheatre, the Hippodrome, a 20,000-seat horse racing arena, as well as the impressive Roman aqueducts!
Haifa Bahai Gardens Lookout Haifa is Israel’s main port city, the 3rd largest city in Israel and home to the famous Bahai Gardens. We’ll take a few minutes to enjoy the spectacular views before continuing…
Haifa Naval Museum “Af Al Pi Chen” The ‘Af Al Pi Chen’ Clandestine Immigration & Naval Museum features the story of the famous ship “Af Al Pi Chen,” which brought 434 refugees from Europe to Israel in 1947.
Acco Fortified Walls & Market One of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, Akko dates to the time of the Pharaoh Thutmose III and was a central city of the Ottoman Empire. Stop by the market and stroll along shoreline walls built by the Ottoman governor using old Crusader stones.
Rosh Hanikra Grottos & Cable Car Formed over a period of thousands of years from waves hitting the soft chalk rock on Israel’s coast, the beautiful Grottoes (sea caves) of Rosh Hanikra are truly a wonder of creation. Ride via cable car from the mountain top down to sea level to walk within its gorgeous walls. [Sadly, the cable car wasn't operating.]
