From Ramalla --> Caesarea --> Haifa --> Acre
Highlights: Walking on the old walls of Acre. The view from the top of Mt. Carmel in Haifa..
Lowlights: Our service at a restaurant within the walls of Acre.
We stopped at Caesarea on the Mediterranean coast. There were ruins from the Roman times, including a working aqueduct and an amphitheater. We didn't pay to go in so our pictures don't reflect the coolness.
We stopped for a bit in Haifa on top of Mt. Carmel for a view of the city and the surrounding area. Very nice. We also paid 2 shekels to go to the bathroom in a Carmelite church.
Spent the most time in Acre (Akka in Arabic). It's a city that was important during the Crusades -- but was destroyed and never fully recovered. What remains is a city within the walls of the old city. I wish we could have spent more time here exploring and taking pictures, but such is life. Who knows, there may be a next time.
We drove past the Silicon Valley of Israel, just south of Haifa. Microsoft, Sun, SAP, Intel... the whole lot had buildings.
