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. While golfers enjoy lush fairways, horse races are reenacted in the huge hippodrome in the national park.

  • Located about 20 km south of Haifa, the Atlit Refugee Camp served as a detention center for illegal Jewish immigrants seeking refuge in Palestine during the British Mandate. Today the museum is dedicated to the pre-state illegal immigration, telling the story of Jews fleeing Nazi persecution in Europe, finally reaching Palestine, only to be incarcerated in camps similar in appearance to the death camps they have just escaped.

  • The ancient biblical mound of Megiddo in Megiddo National Park, whose universal value has made it a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is on an important ancient and modern crossroad. By the third millennium BCE, Megiddo was a powerfully fortified city; 1,000 years later it became a center of Egyptian rule, and is mentioned frequently in the Bible. Christianity identifies it as the eschatological Armageddon. Highlights include ‘Solomon’s Gate’; panoramas of the pastoral Jezreel Valley and the ninth-century BCE underground water system––testimony to the amazing abilities and initiative of its engineers.

  • Beit Shearim National Park encompasses some of the most dramatic and interesting evidence of the Jewish past in the Galilee and of the Jewish world of Roman times. After the Romans exiled the Jews from Jerusalem in the second century CE, Jewish community life reestablished itself in the Galilee, and Beit Shearim rose to prominence as the headquarters of the Sanhedrin.

  • Beauty, grandeur, and inspired design combined with the painstaking gardening of generations create the unique atmosphere of the Baha’i shrine and gardens in Haifa.This is the site where members of the Baha’ifaith have established their shrine and world center because of its significance to the Baha’i faith.

  • The Reuben and Edith Hecht Museum at the University of Haifa was inaugurated in 1984, and was the initiative of the late Dr. Reuben Hecht. From his youth, Dr. Hecht was interested in the archaeology of the Land of Israel, and for a period of sixty years he assiduously collected archaeological artifacts representing the material culture of the Land of Israel in ancient times. The Museum faithfully highlights Dr. Hecht's vision that archaeology was an important expression of Zionism and that the discovery of ancient artifacts was proof of the link between the Jewish people and the Land of Israel.

  • Visiting Acre is an emotional journey to a glorious past and a one-of-a-kind experience. Join us for an exciting visit to an ancient city with a young soul - a city declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

  • The gleaming white cliffs of Rosh Hanikra and the beautiful stretch of beach below are a magnificent sight to behold. But the real excitement begins when you board the cable-car for your two-minute ride down the 210-foot cliff.

  • The Tefen Industrial Park combines between local industry and local culture and art- as is traditional with the industrialist Stephen Wertheimer. Many museums can be found here, including the Museum of Vintage and Classic Cars and an interesting Art of Industry Museum
