HAIFA (Nazareth)
HAIFA (Nazareth)

Israel's easy-breezy Mediterranean city is an effortlessly cool place of beach worship and night-time revelry. Tel Aviv has it all - dynamic culture, characterful food and the trademark sweeps of pristine sand that are perfect for soaking up lashings of ever-present sunshine. Arrive on Israel's shores at Haifa, which sits below Mount Carmel, and is surrounded by elaborate places of worship, as well as the Baha'i Hanging Gardens - a terraced green UNESCO World Heritage Site.

As you reach the bright lights of Tel Aviv, you'll find a relaxed, energetic and youthful city waiting for you. Crowded with afternoon strollers, joggers, and beach revellers, a walk along the Tayelet promenade - from Tel Aviv's skyscrapers to Jaffa's historic charm – is a fantastic introduction to this dynamic city. Jaffa's watchtower is the perfect landmark to orientate around, as the cobbled streets of the old town unravel, and flea markets flog exotic goods. Head to Neve Tzedek, to explore the city's oldest neighbourhood, which has been successfully rejuvenated and re-energised as an artsy warren. Dilapidated old houses have been repurposed into lively galleries and creative spaces. Nearby Carmel Market's stalls overflow with exotic spices, jams and dried fruit. Wade in, but be prepared to strike a hard bargain. The White City, meanwhile, is a 4,000 strong collection of UNESCO protected Bauhaus style buildings, built for German immigrants fleeing persecution in the 1930s, and designed to mirror Europe's cafe culture. New and exciting restaurants open on a nightly basis all over Tel Aviv, and you can enjoy street food and Middle Eastern staples - like fresh Hummus and fluffy pitas stuffed with spiced falafels.

Excursions depuis HAIFA (Nazareth)

Acre & Crusaders’ Kingdom

Explore the fascinating story behind the ancient city of Acre during a scenic, half-day sojourn to this UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Depart the pier for the approximate one-hour drive to Acre, or 'Akko', a spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site situated on the northernmost point of Haifa Bay. This splendid ancient city dates back almost 4,000 years, and once played a pivotal role during the Crusaders' rule in the 11th century.


Knights of St. John

Upon arrival at Acre, a visit is made to the Medieval subterranean headquarters of the Knights of St. John. Part of this underground city was known as the Hospitaller Quarter, because it was here that the knights received their medical care. Your tour takes you through a series of barrel-vaulted rooms, or 'Crusader Halls', leading to the Refectory (dining hall). Also known as the 'Crypt', it is a true representation of Crusader architecture. Nearby is a stairway leading to a long underground passage thought to be an escape tunnel built by the Crusaders in order to reach the port during enemy attacks.


Turkish Bazaar

After returning to the surface, your tour continues with a look at Acre's Ottoman past during a visit to the vibrant, 18th-century Turkish Bazaar, the elegantly-restored Turkish Baths, now a museum, and the lively marketplace offering exotic and intoxicating scents.


Kahn El Umdan

Leaving the market, continue to the enormous Kahn El Umdan, or 'Pillar's Inn', an ancient caravanserai that once served the camel caravans. A stop is then made at the picturesque Pisan Port, which was built by Crusader seamen from Pisa, Italy.


Your tour concludes with a photo opportunity on Mount Carmel, above the Baha'i Gardens. Take in panoramic views of your surroundings before re-boarding your coach for the return drive to the pier.

Best of Jerusalem & Old City Walking Tour

Discover Jerusalem's ancient beauty and some of history's most sacred sites during this scenic, full-day sightseeing tour of Israel's capital city.


Panoramic Drive, Mount Scopus, Garden of Gethsemane

Depart the pier in Haifa for the approximate 150 min drive into the Judean Hills. On the drive to Jerusalem, familiar names will catch your attention all along the way. Begin with a magnificent view over the Golden City from atop the Mount Scopus. Then walk through the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus spent the last moments before his arrest. Early Christians were already holding gatherings here before the first church was built around AD 380. Visit the beautiful church and see some of the oldest olive trees remaining in Jerusalem.


Mt. Zion, Lunch

Next, your drive continues on to Mt. Zion, located south of today's city walls. Upon arrival, a visit is made to the Room of the Last Supper, where Jesus' last meal with his disciples and the descent of the Holy Spirit is thought to have taken place. Located on the ground floor of Mt. Zion is the Tomb of King David, one of the most visited and venerated sites by people of the Jewish faith.


Following your visit, proceed for a buffet lunch served at a local hotel. After lunch, re-board your coach for the drive to the Old City.


Old City, Walking Tour

Enter the Old City via the Zion Gate and walk through the Jewish Quarter and the Roman Cardo to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher on the site of Christ's resurrection. The original vast sanctuary built here by Emperor Constantine was destroyed centuries later, but a replacement was eventually rebuilt by the Crusaders. Inside the church you will see the last five Stations of the Cross. Walk through the colorful bazaar as you continue en route to the Western (Wailing) Wall. This is the last vestige of the ramparts that surrounded the Holy Temple of the Jews, built by Solomon, destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar, rebuilt by Babylonian exiles, and burned down by Titus.


Your scenic tour of Jerusalem concludes with a leisurely drive back to the pier.

Herod’s Dream - Caesarea Maritime

Among the abundance of tourist sites that relate the story of ancient Israel is the magnificent story of Caesarea Maritime.


Depart Haifa Port and ascend Mount Carmel for a breath-taking view of Haifa Bay, the golden dome of Haifa's Baha'i Shrine and Acre in the distance.


Caesarea (Archeological Site)

Drive along Via Maris to Caesarea and visit the ancient port city built by Herod the Great on the ruins of an ancient anchorage known as Stratton's tower. He named it Caesarea in honour of his Roman patron, Augustus Caesar. In 66 C.E., in Caesarea, which was the capital of the country during the Roman period, the Jews of the city raised the revolt against Rome, touching off the Jewish war. Caesarea became an important Christian centre that was alternatively conquered by Moslems and Crusaders until it was destroyed at the end of the thirteenth century. Among the magnificent array of archaeological finds at the site are restored Crusaders fortifications, a Byzantine street and a Roman Theatre.


A walk among the ruins cannot be complete without observing the splendid 'Travel Through Time' displays that combine to recreate a city being reawakened in front of your eyes. Then continue to the Tower of Time, where you can take a virtual tour of the city, enter buildings and visit the streets, even participate in various activities such as horse racing in the Hippodrome, performances in the theatre, roaming around the market booths, and receiving ships arriving at the port, all of which tangibly and powerfully indicate Caesarea's importance throughout the ages.


After your visit, re-board your coach for the return drive to the pier.

Visit the beautifully-landscaped Baron Rothschild's Gardens, where Baron James Rothschild and his wife are interred, then continue to the Amphorae Winery, one of the most beautiful wineries in Israel. Located in the heart of the Western Carmel region, one of world's oldest areas of wine production, the Amphorae winery looks like it was plucked from a Tuscany postcard. Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour of the facilities, then proceed for a wine tasting accompanied by assorted local cheeses.


At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately one-hour drive back to the pier.

After checking in at the hotel, enjoy dinner. An evening drive brings you to Jaffa -- the ancient (and once the only) entry port to the land of Israel. Jaffa is a microcosm encircled by the modern city of Tel Aviv, but its character remains intact and it is perfectly preserved as a result of a massive and detailed restoration project that took place in the 1960s. Jaffa is where the prophet Jonah boarded the ship for Tarshish, St Peter stayed in the house of Simon the Tanner, and Andromeda, the daughter of Jaffa's king, was tied to a rock, awaiting the sea monster. You can see Andromeda's Rock in the distance.

Continue your drive through modern Tel Aviv. Rothschild Boulevard is known for its 1930s Bauhaus buildings and the extraordinary balconies that lend Tel Aviv its White City nickname. Tel Aviv is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

After breakfast, check out of the hotel and begin the drive to Bethlehem -- King David's City. Here, you'll visit the Church of Nativity built above the place where Christ is said to have been born. The actual Cave of the Nativity is a small crypt with a vaulted masonry roof. Poor Bethlehem families used the rocky hollows of the region as stables or dwellings, so the tradition that places the Nativity in a cave is consistent with Biblical lore. This church was first built by Queen Helene in the 4th century and is the only Byzantine church in the Holy Land.


At the conclusion of three exciting days in Israel, your motor coach will bring you to the port at Ashdod, where you will re-board the ship.
