Begin your journey with a drive up Mount Carmel to view Haifa’s signature landmark, The Baha’i Gardens. These elaborate terraced gardens climb the slopes in stunning fashion on their way up to the golden Shrine of the Bab. The Baha’i Gardens are so spectacular, in fact, they’re commonly called the “eighth wonder of the world.” From here, head to the Stella Maris Monastery, built in the 19th century and offering up sweeping views of the Mediterranean Sea. Leaving Haifa, drive to Acre, the world’s only preserved Crusader city. Venture along the mighty ramparts and witness the city’s imposing examples of medieval architecture. Pay a visit to the grandest of them all, Knight’s Hall, erected in the 12th century by the famed Knights Hospitaller. Wander ghostly passages and grand chambers, while hearing tales of Richard the Lion Heart. Afterwards, a scenic drive leads back to Haifa and your waiting ship.
