Israel is such a small country, but has so much to offer. This time we will discover the northern part of the country. The Ancient Caesarea is our first destination. The ancient city was built by Herod the Great during the Period of Roman Empire. In the ancient times Caesarea was the Roman Capital and played significant importance due to its port. We will walk to the Roman Theatre, will explore archaeological ruins of Herod’s palace and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the beach.
Afterwards we will continue to Haifa along the coast. In Haifa we will visit the Baha’i Shrine and gardens; The gardens are down the mountain towards the city, the scenery is amazing. The gardens are full of different sorts of colorful flowers, trees and other plants. We will learn about Bahai religion history and modern activity of the organization. There is an amazing scenery from the mountains of Haifa, you can observe the down town city.
Next we will head to Rosh Hanikra that is the most northern point of Israel’s Mediterranean coast. The place has become famous due to the sea grottoes. We will board the cable-car for the ride down the cliff. Then we walk through the tunnels and ramble through the caverns, which carved out by the Mediterranean Sea waves. The experience is absolutely unforgettable.
