Three cable cars in Haifa, Israel
Take the cable car up to Mt Carmel (546 metres) and enjoy the magnificent views. Visit the Stella Maris Carmelite Monastery, Latin for 'Star of the Sea'. Admire the church's beautifully painted ceiling and dome. Stretching back to the Crusader era, the monks originally inhabited the mountain caves.
Stroll around the picturesque, restored German Colony at the foot of the Baha'i Gardens. German Templars who came to establish a Christian community here built the houses in the 19th century. Cruise to Israel to admire the pretty stone houses, browse the little shops and meet the locals in the lively cafés.
Fill up for your Haifa adventure with some burekas, a crispy phyllo dough pastry often filled with vegetables, spices and cheese. Enjoy Middle Eastern fare like falafel wraps slathered in tahini sauce or lamb shawarma brightened up with herbaceous parsley in the Wadi Nisnas or Hadar neighbourhoods. For desert, taste sweet baklava, with layers of flaky pastry and pistachio sweetened with honey, or knefah, a light cheesecake soaked in sweet syrup.
Haifa's largest shopping centre is the Grand Canyon and includes over 200 designer and boutique shops. In the Haifa Flea Market, you'll find vintage and second-hand items, including handmade silver and gold jewellery. During your Israel cruise, look for decorative plates and ceramics hand-painted with traditional geometric patterns or Holy Land-themed designs.
