A picturesque city in the north of the country, Haifa combines history and appearances to create an interesting and relaxing destination.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Nachlat Binyamin Pedestrian Mall and Crusader Fortress. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to International Center Mary of Nazareth and Dado Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Haifa: Tayelet (in Tel Aviv), Jaffa Old City (in Jaffa) and Cana (in Nazareth). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Magdala, steep yourself in history at Mount of Beatitudes, take in the spiritual surroundings of Bahai Gardens and Shrine, and pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Mount of Beatitudes.
