HAIFA, Isreal

Wednesday 30th October arrive 0700 - Depart 2200

Haifa is built on the slopes of Mount Carmel, overlooking a superb bay. It is Israel’s chief port (naval and merchant shipping), third largest city and a busy centre of commerce and industry. Its economy was developed under the British Mandate. During this period, the harbour was modernised, a refinery built and an oil pipeline laid to Iraq.

For many Jews, Haifa has a special significance. It was the main disembarkation port for immigrants from Europe after the Second World War. The prophet Elijah is believed to have taken refuge in a cave on the slopes of Mount Carmel. The grotto is a holy site for Jews.
