Haifa, Acre, Zippori Tour

Travel up north and discover the fascinating cities along the Western Galilee and the Mediterranean coast, each with its rich mix of natural beauty, ancient heritage and religious traditions.On our way to the coast, we pass by Mount Precipice, where Jesus survives an attempt to throw him off the cliff. We will stop for a short while to appreciate the view and then continue our tour in Haifa, the capital of the North. Haifa is considered a holy city for the Baha’i faith, who have planted sacred gardens along the hillside leading up to their shrine. You’ll have a great view of the beautiful gardens, as well as the city of Haifa, spread out across the coast below, as you learn about the great Baha’i religion and history. Driving north, we’ll pass through the charming neighborhoods of the German Colony and Wadi Nisnas.

We then continue to the ancient city of Acre, a walled port-city, rich with over 3500 years of history. Each successive ruler left their mark on the city, and we will be given time to explore it from the sea, sailing around the walls of Acre. The old city walls, the crusader fortresses, the lighthouse, and the mosques. Even today, the city is still vibrant and active, and we will visit the bustling marketplace for lunch. There is a wide range of culinary options, however, we recommend the simple but tasty Hummus Saeed, famous throughout the country for its tasty chickpea dip and warm, fresh Arabic bread.

On our way back to Nazareth we will visit an olive press near Tzipori. You will see many beautiful olive groves throughout this region as you are reminded of the fact that you are just a short distance from the Mediterranean sea.

After a full and fruitful day, we will drive back to our starting point, Mary’s Well, ending the tour at approximately 5 pm.
