The largest city in northern Israel has an incredible history.
This spectacular city rises dramatically from the Mediterranean on terraced hillsides, which culminate with Mount Carmel. From that viewpoint on a cruise to Haifa, all the world seems to lie at your feet. On a clear day you can see north all the way to the Lebanese border, as well as the snowcapped Mount Hermon to the east. Travel to Galilee—Israel's luscious region and the scene of Christ's youth. Here Jesus was baptized and preached. Or, stand at the banks of the River Jordan, visit where Christ delivered the Sermon on the Mount, get close to the grotto in Nazareth where the Archangel Gabriel appeared to the Virgin Mary — plus take in panoramic views of the Sea of Galilee. Enjoy lunch on a kibbutz or at a restaurant.
