Nazareth – Tour and Dinner

Our tour will depart from Haifa for a short drive to Nazareth, the place where the angel Gabriel told Mary she will become a mother, and today the largest Arab city in Israel.

A visit to Nazareth is an unforgettable experience. It combines a rich history, fascinating archeology, modern culture, and Middle Eastern charm. We will explore the old city's narrow passageways and its historical and religious sites. Our first stop will be the Catholic Church, where we can view the beautiful mosaics of Mary from all over the world. Next we will visit the Church of St. Joseph, which, according to tradition was built on top of Joseph's carpentry shop. We will also go to the Synagogue Church, where Jesus preached to the young people of Nazareth.

During our visit we will walk through the marketplace and take in the wonderful scents of different spices, taste the local speciality foods, and enjoy the sights and sounds.

Our trip will include a short ride to Mount Precipice to see the breathtaking view of the Jezreel Valley.

We will conclude our day with a unique and delicious dinner.
