Explore Israel's ancient Roman cities and ports on a fascinating day trip from Jerusalem. From the shores of the Mediterranean to the border of Lebanon, you will visit places of significance during the Roman empire, such as Caesarea, Haifa, Rosh Hanikra and the Crusader underground city at Acre.
Head off first to Caesarea, the beautiful fishing port which was transformed into a Roman Capital capital by King Herod. Your visit includes a walking tour of the many archeological ruins, excavations and majestic Roman theater of the city that was named for Augustus Caesar, and is best explored on foot.

Continue to Haifa, Israel’s third city which is set on and around the magnificent Mt. Carmen. The most striking landmark here is the immaculate Bahai Gardens, created as a tranquil memorial to the founders of the Baha’i faith.

From here you will travel up towards the Lebanon border to the rock formations of Rosh Hanikra, where impressive white cliffs meet the Mediterranean Sea. The action of the sea on the soft rocks has created a rich labyrinth of caves and limestone grottos, which you will have the chance to stroll around and explore.  The Rosh Hanikra grottos are part of the Achziv Natural Reserve, and you may be lucky enough to catch sight of loggerhead turtle and bats – two examples of the native wildlife in this place of natural wonders.

Your day trip from Jerusalem concludes with a visit to the city of Acre. The city is often referred to as Akko, which means ‘until here’, illustrating the fact that it was historically the furthest point of in the Israeli Kingdom. Here you will visit the Crusader underground city and crypt, a complex world of underground tunnels and halls which were used by the Knights of St John as their headquarters. Before heading back to Jerusalem, you will walk back through the Old City Market, where can pick up a souvenir of your day of discovery.

    Israel is so rich in history but you only assume it's biblical - this tour offers an insight into other influences - roman, ottoman and the crusaders. The guide was very knowledgeable. The icing on the cake were the rosh hanikra grottos and you don't realise how close you are to the Lebanese border. Early start to the trip but worth it
