Israel Part 4

Northern Israel: Caesarea, Haifa, Rosh HaNikra, and Acre

On my last day in Israel, I took a tour of northern Israel. The tour stopped in Caeserea, Haifa, Rosh HaNikra, and Acre. We drove up the coast from Tel Aviv to Caesarea, the ancient Roman capital and port. I toured the Roman amphitheater, archaeological ruins and excavations. The tour then went on to the Baha'i Gardens at the summit of Mount Carmel where we had a beautiful view of the port and city of Haifa. The tour continued north to Rosh HaNikra and I toured the limestone grottoes and saw the Lebanese border. From there the tour ventured south to Acre where I toured the Crusader City and walked through the Old City market before heading back to Tel Aviv.

Caesarea. Fun fact, Kobi my tour guide mentioned about Caesarea. It is the most expensive area to live in, in Israel. Apparently the Prime Minister (Netanyahu at the time of my visit) has a mansion here.

Did you ride the cable car down to the grottos? That looked like fun. The gardens and views from Mount Carmel were beautiful as was the coastline! What a wonderful trip!

I have to say your photos, even in the different light, are great. Did you use your phone or a separate camera? One reason I am asking is that my sister is going to Israel next spring and is wondering if the camera on her phone will be good enough. Thanks!
