Safed

— 16 nights
The birthplace of the Kabbalah movement, Safed boasts a mystical and spiritual heritage as one of the country's four holy cities.
Escape the urban bustle at Iyon Stream Nature Reserve and T-Pa Aheret. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Abuhav Synagogue and Yom Tov Art Gallery. Change things up with these side-trips from Safed: Ramot Naftali (3 Vines Winery & Naaman Winery), Tiberias (Tomb of Maimonides, Berenice Winery, &more) and Gadot Lookout (in Gadot). And it doesn't end there: get a taste of the local shopping with Olive Tree Fine Art Gallery, take in the exciting artwork at Sheva Chaya Glassblowing Gallery, learn about winemaking at The Abouhav Winery, and look for all kinds of wild species at Hula Nature Reserve.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Safed vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Tel Aviv to Safed is an approximately 2.5-hour car ride. You can also take a bus; or do a combination of train and bus. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from Tel Aviv in March since evenings lows in Safed dip to 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Wed) so you can drive to Nazareth.

Nazareth

— 14 nights

Arab Capital of Israel

Known worldwide as the hometown of Jesus Christ, Nazareth draws flocks of pilgrims who come to see the place where Christ grew up, and follow his footsteps along the Jesus Trail.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Zippori National Park and Mt. of Precipice Lookout Point. Escape the urban bustle at Nahal Hashofet and Ma'ayan Harod National Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Acre (Hamam El Basha Museum, Ghattas Turkish Bath, &more), The Pioneer Settlement Museum (in Lavi) and Beit She'an (Belvoir National Park & Bet Alfa Synagogue - National Park). There's much more to do: learn about winemaking at Netofa Winery, see the interesting displays at Circassian Museum, identify plant and animal life at The Betekha, Bethsaida, Majrase and Zaki Nature Reserve, and take a stroll around Liwan Culture Cafe.
