Jezreel valley - Southern Carmel mountains - Northern coastal plain.


CAESARIA - Where King Herod worked his architectural magic developing the port/city which he dedicated to the Roman emperor Augustus Ceaser. Later additions were added by the Crusaders. The port/city has an extensive Jewish, Christian & Islamic history.

ZICHRON YAAKOV - Founded by Baron de Rothschild in 1882 & located in the southern Carmel mountains. It rose to prominance during WW1 due to a resident family who spied for the British during the Turkish occupation of the Holyland. Today it is a picturesque village inundated with shops, resturants & coffee bars. A good location to have lunch.

MEGIDDO - Located in the Jezreel valley at a strategic junction on the Via Maris (the main ancient highway between Egypt & Syria). It is therefore a major archaeological site & is according to Protestant belief, the site of the final battle between good & evil, namely Armageddon.
