The North of Israel

Haifa, on the Carmel mountain, is the largest city in the north of the country and is cited in many biblical references as far back as Elijah. It also holds the honor of serving as home to the Baha’i Shrine and Gardens. A deep cultural narrative is present in the city that prides itself on coexistence.

Heading north and inland from Haifa, things turn much greener and the area is famous for many important Christian sites spreading from Jardenit on the Jordan River, to Nazareth in Central Galilee and of course all the locations on the Sea of Galilee itself, including Tabgha, Bethsaida, Migdala, the Mt. of the Beatitudes and Capernaum. Safed, where the Kabbalah developed high in the hills and Tiberius, 200 feet below sea level join the breathtaking view from the Roman fortress of Gamla, the fabulous falls at Banias and the amazing grottos of Rosh HaNikra as attractions for every visitor to Israel.

For the antiquity lovers, the synagogue in Katzrin, Bet Shean, Belvoir and Arbel to name just a few, make the north of Israel a place that can’t be beat. A fabulous fish meal at a waterfront restaurant in Acre rounds off a tantalizing menu for every tourist to the north of Israel.
