We drive along the coastal highway to Caesarea, city where past and the future come together. While new Caesarea is graced with magnificent modern homes, ancient Caesarea offers tourists the ruins of unique, impressive buildings. A tour of the national park is like walking through a story, and wandering between the ancient buildings one can both sense how people lived here thousands of years ago and enjoy modern, contemporary experiences, such as the enthralling musical performances held in the beautiful Roman Theater.
Next we proceed to Haifa, the pearl of this tour. Third largest city in Israel and one of its prettiest; Haifa has a lot to offer visitors. It has the Israels largest port, a particularly active beach and is the home of the World Center of the BahaiFaith. The Bahais originated in the Bab sect which separated from Irans Shiite Islam in 1844. TheBahaiWorld Center, an expansive and well-designed complex on the slope of the Carmel, is famous for its magnificent gardens. It includes the exquisitely landscaped Hanging Gardens which run about a kilometer along the Louis Promenade until Hagefen Street. At the center is the impressive, gold-domed Shrine of the Bab, the burial place of the Bab, the founder of the faith. One can enjoy some enchanting spots while strolling through the beautiful gardens by day, but with the special lighting, an evening visit provides equal pleasure and a peaceful, romantic atmosphere.
Continue to Rosh Hanikra.As you walk through the artificial tunnels and view caverns carved out by the pounding waves of the Mediterranean, youll enjoy the myriad shades of the water and the dramatic play of light and shadow it casts. The strange sounds the waves make as they rush in and out of the caves make it easy to believe the old legend that a pair of star-crossed lovers used to meet here, and the voice of the would-be bride can still be heard.
