The Coastal Magic Tour

 

Starting our journey in Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, whichever you prefer, we'll be driving up along the coastline of Israel visiting Caesarea, Acre, Haifa and eventually coming all the way to Rosh Hanikra, next to Israel’s northern border and where sea, mountain and limestone underwater caves all meet up.

We will be starting the day with a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site at the city of Akko (Acre).

The recently discovered Crusaders Halls await us here, dating back to the second Crusaders Kingdom in the Holy Land. We'll inspect the tunnels, the halls, the headquarters, the ports and much more.

The Ottoman period in the city took place during the 18th and 19th centuries. We will get to know it through the prism of the Turkish Hamam and Napoleon's journey of conquering the land. Following a walk through the underground, 12th century Templers Tunnels, we'll be strolling along the alleys of Akko's Old City, passing by the Oriental Market and the Arab mosque on our way to the old port. If time permits it, we will also stop at the incredible and singular Tunisian Synagogue. we will have our breath taken away as we’ll be leaving Akko on our way to Rosh Hanikra’s incredible limestone grottos, found on the border with Lebanon and at the most northern point in Israel, on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea, where we’ll enjoy the blue waves, the steep mountains and the fascinating underwater world that is created when they collide.  

Our next stop for the day is the third largest city in Israel, Haifa. We will get a stunning panoramic view of the city from the Baha’i shrine and gardens. This site is the second most sacred place in the world for this young religion, trailing only behind their shrine in the vicinity of Akko, where the religion’s founder and prophet is buried) and groomed accordingly it is then no surprise that there are many who would swear the gardens here to be even more beautiful than the Versailles Gardens. To complete this experience of beauty composed of both nature and man made structures, we will head in the direction of the Louis Promenade, where we will get a dazzling bird’s view of the city of Haifa and the bay upon which it was built.           

The next and last stop for the day is the beautiful, 2000 years old city of Caesarea. It was built by none other than the Great Herod himself and soon after it became the ancient Roman capital in the governor's time. Here, we will enjoy the old Roman Theather and the hippodrome, the beautiful palaces, the Roman streets, the Crusaders city 

with the moat and of course, the aquaduct, providing us with an eyeful of these and many other archeological ruins and findings. The day will be made complete with some of the best ice cream in Israel at the Crusaders port.
