A picturesque city in the north of the country, Haifa combines history and appearances to create an interesting and relaxing destination.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Sea of Galilee and Mount of Beatitudes. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Haifa: Nazareth (The Church of the Annunciation & Megiddo National Park), Tiberias (Tiberias & Tabgha) and Magdala (in Migdal). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Baha'i Gardens and Golden Dome, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Mount of Beatitudes, get to know the fascinating history of The German Colony, and contemplate the long history of Beit Shearim.

To plan Haifa vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Lagos, Nigeria to Haifa is an approximately 18.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Lagos to Haifa. Plan for cooler temperatures traveling from Lagos in December, with highs in Haifa at 22°C and lows at 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sun) early enough to travel to Eilat.
