Full description
Depart from Jerusalem and travel up the Mediterranean coast. On the way, pass Herzilya and Natanya before reaching the first point of interest, the old city of Caesarea.

Discover how this city was constructed under Herod and named after the Roman Emperor, Caesar. 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. Next to the amphitheater, find the remains of the Hippodrome and Roman Temple. Learn about how both buildings stood above the port overlooking the busy commercial ships carrying treasures from the east and the Nabatean caravans which were on route to Rome. Hear stories about how after the Crusade, the city which was was so prosperous sank into oblivion.

Continue driving north passing through Haifa where you will stop to see the breathtaking Baha'i Shrine and gardens. The terraced gardens cascade down the mountain towards the city below, each of the 19 terraces bursts with colorful flowers and landscaped designs. Next stop at 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. Marvel at how 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. Learn about how the mighty walls prevented even Napoleon from conquering the city. Finally visit 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 British law limiting Jewish immigration to Palestine following World War II.
