Tour Itinerary

  • Travelling north along the Mediterranean coast we arrive at ancient Caesarea, built by Herod and dedicated to the Roman Emperor, Caesar.
  • See the remains of this 2000 year old Roman city and port. Built on the edge of the sea this is an expansive archaeological site which reveals mosaics, houses, an aqueduct system as well as the famous Roman Amphitheatre.
  • Continuing north, we pass through Haifa and make a brief stop to admire the gold topped Bahai shrine and gardens and the breathtaking view of the bay and port area.
  • At Israel’s northern border we stop at Rosh Hanikra and take the cable car down to the spectacular grottoes and caverns forged by the pounding waves.
  • Our final stop is at the ancient city of Acre (Acco), the largest of the Crusader cities in Israel, where we see the enormous columns and stroll from chamber to chamber in the Citadel. The walls and the moat of Acre, restored and rebuilt by El Jazzar at the end of the 18th century withstood the attempt of Napoleon Bonaparte to conquer the city. Atop of the Crusader remains is the Turkish prison, with the gallows later used during the British Mandate to hang Palestinian Jews opposed to the British policy limiting Jewish immigration after WWII.
  • Wander through the Great Mosque, the Citadel, finally arriving at the colorful market, where you can browse the market stalls with their wares hanging from every possible place, sample the freshly baked Baklava and bargain for the best deals you can.
