Things to Do in Haifa
Visit Haifa to discover an entertaining place steeped in history. Over the centuries, numerous rulers and forces set their eyes on Haifa due to its powerful port; Crusaders, Napoleon, Ibrahim Pasha, and Britain amid others fought to conquer this multicultural metropolis. On arrival to Haifa, go for a half-day city tour to stroll around museums, Persian gardens, markets, and must-see attractions. Then, we recommend that you spend as much time as possible in Downton Haifa, strolling along Ben-Gurion Street. That’s the old main axis of the German Protestant community which transformed this city. Here you will see vestiges of interesting old houses, excellent restaurants and chic boutiques. After this, take the Haifa cable car to get up the steep hill to the Stella Maris Carmelite Monastery, so you can also enjoy the best views of the city and the sea. Finally, we recommend all windsurfers to go exploring Bat Galim Beach, a favorite with water sports enthusiasts.
