Visiting Meron and Amuka - is this possible at all

Hi All,

I posted here a few days back about guided tour to Tzfat, however, still struggling to find a suitable option, so here I am with another question

Is this a totally stupid idea to try to get on our own to the grave of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai from Tzfat without driving a car and without a guide? and without speaking any Hebrew? If the answer is still No (means it's feasible with some preparation), then any idea about the route?

And the same about Amuka.

Thanks a lot!

(I'm counting days left till our long awaited trip to Israel and do hope that current events won't destroy it!!!!!!!)

You can take a taxi from Zfat and visit. You could also inquire while in Zfat if there are any organized tours to the graves.

Taking public transportation to RASHBI/Amouka is not an option. You would have to rent a car or participate as part of a group. As shoshi indicated, Zefat is a center departue point for such tours.
