Today we’ll travel along part of the 200km of the famous shore line of Israel.
The Mediterranean seashore is populated since ancient time, with port cities and magnificent beaches. In the shallow sea line one can find remains of historical site and wrecked boats, testimony and an inseparable part of Israel’s marine cultural heritage.
We’ll head north – passing Apollonia, Michmoret, and reaching Caesarea – a natural port city since year 90 BC later built by King Herods as the Roman administrative center in Judea and named after his benefactor Augustus Caesar. The city preserved this status for some centuries, slowly turning from city to a colony and then to a metropolis and important Christian center.
In the 13 century the city was destroyed by the Muslim Mameluke Sultan Baybaras along with other port cities in the Israeli shoreline. We’ll visit the remains of the vast port, Shrine, palace theater and other facilities at the National Park.
Following the seashore road we’ll continue north passing the cities and shore of Dor, Atlit, Shikmona, and we’ll stop for a breathtaking view of the active port of Haifa, the third largest city of Israel, from the heights of the Bahá’í Shrine Gardens, among the most popular sites in the Middle East and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Some nineteen terraces extending all the way up the northern slope of Mount Carmel.
As we’ll continue our journey we’ll reach the oldest port of the area – Akko – also known as Acre. First evidences of sailing in Acre are dated to the Bronze period. The city knew ups and downs and passed from hand to hand many times, and reached its peak when it served as the capital of the Kingdom of Jerusalem in the 13th century and as the capital of Ahmad al-Jazzar at the end of the 18th century.
We’ll visit the buzzy port and the beautiful crusaders citadel, then stop for lunc at Acre bustling port.
Leaving charming Acre behind us we’ll continue to the last Israeli resort on that seashore: Rosh Hanikra – where you’ll see and feel the love story between the sea and the shore as this is the only point in the country where the sea meets the mountains. Rosh Hanikra, means the Top of the Grotto, nestled along the border with Lebanon, and are a must-see. We’ll take the cable car all the way down to see the ravishing natural phenomenon. Get your camera ready!
