Ascend back into the mountains of Upper Galilee and hike the Summit Trail on Mount Meron with its breathtaking panoramas.
Continue along Israel’s northern road all the way to Rosh Hanikra. Here the rocky cliffs descend steeply into the Mediterranean Sea, allowing the waves to carve grottos of a thousand shapes. Take the cable car down to the grottos for a short stroll through the rocky passageways.
In the late afternoon, drive to Acre, a historic walled port-city with continuous settlement beginning in the Phoenician period. The remains of the Crusader town, dating from 1104 to 1291, lie almost intact both above and below today's street level, providing an exceptional picture of the layout and structures of the capital of the medieval Crusader kingdom, along with touches of the Ottoman fortified market town Acre was during the 18th and 19th centuries. Wander through the markets with their spice shops, fresh fruits and vegetables and other treats, walk along the old ramparts by the sea and enjoy sunset over the Mediterranean.
