From Tel Aviv: Caesarea, Haifa, Acre and Rosh Hanikra Tour

1. From Tel Aviv: Caesarea, Haifa, Acre and Rosh Hanikra Tour

Depart Tel Aviv and travel up the Mediterranean coast, passing by Herzilya and Natanya on the way. Arrive at the first point of interest, the city of Caesarea which was constructed under Herod and named after the Roman Emperor, Caesar. From what remains of the ancient city learn about how it was a prosperous and luxurious city. Among the archaeological excavations, see gateways, a moat, and well-preserved walls and rooms. Visit the perfectly preserved Roman amphitheater which is still used today for performances by Israeli and international artists. Head over to part of what was once a hippodrome and the remains of a Roman Temple which stood above the port.  Continue driving north passing through Haifa where you will stop to see the breathtaking Baha'i Shrine and gardens. Stroll through the terraced gardens which cascade down the mountain towards the city below. See how each of the 19 terraces bursts with colorful flowers and landscaped designs. Next, stop in Rosh HaNikra, the most northerly point along Israel's Mediterranean coast. Descend by cable car into the network of limestone grottoes created by the constant bombardment of waves against the rocks. On the return journey south, stop at Acre (Akko), the largest Crusader city in the country. Admire how the city is extremely well preserved and be impressed by the incredible surviving architecture. Part of the city is alive with markets and people still living in the ancient buildings. See the walls and moat which was reconstructed and repaired by El Jazzar at the end of the 1900s. Find out about how the mighty walls prevented even Napoleon conquering the city. Finally, see the Crusader remains, the prison used under Turkish rule, and the gallows which were used under the British Mandate to hang Jews who broke the law limiting Jewish immigration to Palestine following World War II.

What people are saying about Acre, Israel

An extraordinary experience! Very tight program, wonderful views, a lot of history (great presentation - even young people, like our 13 year old daughter, Amir Call Or, the full name of our guide, was able to inspire). Israel is explained and brought closer to you from a different perspective. Thanks Amir!

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided interesting and helpful information about the places we saw. We did not spend an excess of time in any of the shopping venues, which I appreciated since it gave us more time to spend at Caesarea and Acre.
