Travel from Tel Aviv to Tiberias Via Caesarea, Haifa & Acre
Travel up the scenic coast to Caesarea, ancient capital of the Roman province, to view the remains of Roman and Crusader structures. This 2000 year old city - built to honor Augustus Caesar - was once the capital of the Roman province and was later occupied by the Crusaders.
Continue on to visit the seaport city of Haifa with its beautiful Bahai gardens, before travelling on to Acre, the ancient Phoenician and Crusader seaport, which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Held by the Ottoman Turks in the 18th century, the city successfully repelled an attack by Napoleon, who laid siege on the town for two months without breaching its defenses. Tour the Crusader Knights' Halls and the covered markets.
Built by Herod the Great's son, on top of a Jewish graveyard, Tiberias was constructed as a tribute to the Roman emperor of the same name in the first century AD. Due to its unfortunate location, the town initially struggled to attract residents. Now however, it is one of Judaism's four holy cities and an important place of pilgrimage.
Looking out over the Sea of Galilee, the town is a lively, vibrant place that is slightly at odds with its ultra-orthodox roots. Also famous for its hot springs, these have been known for their curative properties for thousands of years.
