Haifa and northern coast
  • Caesarea is a city of the past and the future, the new opposite the ancient. While new Caesarea is graced with magnificent modern homes, ancient Caesarea offers tourists the ruins of unique, impressive buildings. Caesarea’s antiquities park is one of Israel’s most impressive parks, housing unique buildings from various periods, bearing silent witness to the upheavals that have visited Caesarea over the past 2,300 years. And alongside all the ruins are modern cafes, quaint restaurants, romantic corners and a sandy beach.

  • Megiddo, named in the Book of Revelation as the setting for a future battle between the forces of good and evil, the site of the Armageddon

  • The prophet Elijah’s fire-lighting challenge — one of the Old Testament’s most spectacular contests between Yahweh, the God of the Israelites, and a pagan deity — took place on the south-eastern summit of Mount Carmel.

  • Acre achieved importance from early times due its great natural harbor, but its role as the main stronghold of the Crusaders made the most lasting impression on its long history. They made it their capital and the main link between their Latin kingdom and Europe. They also gave it another name: St Jean d’Acre.
