Haifa is a major city in Northern Israel located on the slope of Mount Carmel next to the Mediterranean Sea. An Israeli joke goes that "Jerusalem prays, Tel Aviv plays, and Haifa works", highlighting that Jerusalem is the religious center of the country, Tel Aviv is popular for its nightlife, and Haifa is the industrial powerhouse. Haifa tourism primarily includes Mount Carmel, which is a sacred location in Jewish, Christian, and Muslim traditions. Mount Carmel is regarded traditionally as the place where Prophet Elijah lived in a grotto, and the Catholic order of the Carmelites was founded on Mount Carmel in 1209. The world-famous Baha'i Gardens and Bahai World Centre are also located on Mount Carmel.
Haifa has a small airport serving flights to Eilat, to Cyprus, and sometimes to Rhodes and Paphos, a railway and a bus station. You may also get to Haifa by car, taking Highway 2 from Tel Aviv. If you are coming for tourism, we recommend going on one of our Haifa tourism itineraries accompanied by a licensed and professional guide. Haifa is very hilly, so having a transfer will be a huge upside.
