Haifa & Acre: the North Coast of Israel

Israel, Haifa Guide (B): Haifa & Acre: the North Coast of Israel

On the north coast of Israel and approaching the Lebanese border hide two of the most picturesque sights of the Middle East: the city of Haifa with its Bahá'í Gardens, a holy site for the Bahá'í faith; and the city of Acre, a settlement continuously inhabited since the Phoenician period and famous for the incredible remains of the Crusader town, preserved almost intact since the 13th century. Check out how to combine a visit to both cities in a single day! 

Both Haifa and Acre are very well connected by bus or train, so they are the perfect day trip from either Tel Aviv or Nazareth. During my visit to Israel, I decided to travel from Nazareth while I spent a few days there exploring the region of the Galilee.

The first leg of my trip was the bus 331 from Nazareth to Haifa. The trip takes less than one hour. After exploring Haifa, I took one of the frequent trains that cover the route Tel Aviv - Acre and made it there in about 30 minutes. On the way back, I took the bus 353 back to Nazareth. This bus stops in countless little villages on the way, so it can take up to 2h30m to arrive.  ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
