Head up the Mediterranean coast today, stopping first at Caesarea National Park to see the remains of the former Roman capital, including the ancient theater and hippodrome.
Walk the seaside promenade to the renovated port area within the Crusader walls. See the Caesarea Experience, a fascinating computerized presentation of the city's history and best-known historical figures. The beautiful arched remains of the Roman aqueduct are right on the beach, so you can dip your feet in the Mediterranean before leaving the area.
Then, it’s on to Haifa, Israel’s third largest city, to see the magnificent Baha’i Shrine and Gardens, the world center for the Baha’i faith. Enjoy a panoramic view of the city and the bay from the Louis Promenade (a beautiful sunset activity), and head to the renovated old German Colony neighborhood for dinner and a stroll.
In the late afternoon, arrive in Acre, the ancient Phoenician and Crusader seaport (designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site) for a stroll through the covered markets and along the 18th century ramparts, the fishing port, the Khan al-Umdan Caravansary, and more.
Overnight at a hotel in Acre or a bed-and-breakfast in the Galilee mountains.
