We are on our way to start our Israel trip. I was in Israel in 2012 but my friend is on her first international trip.. I would appreciate advice on our northern part of our trip . We are renting a car on King David Street a week from Monday (Aug 25th). We will go to Caesarea and possibly Megiddo on our way to spend the night in Haifa. We need dinner suggestions for Haifa,, Akko,, or Mt Carmel…We are meeting a friend who just moved there. The following is our tentative itinerary for each day:
Lodging at Tiberias
Christian Galilee sites
quick trip to the Safed artist quarter
lodging at Tel Hai
Lodging at Masada
Sunrise Masada hike
Dead Sea float / mud - where?
Lodging in Jerusalem
We are Christian and interested in biblical, cultural, historical sites and National parks and hikes. We also wanted to see the Pools of Sachne and Nimrod's Castle, but I don't know which day or in which order.
I would appreciate any help with reordering the trip into more efficient activities each day or transportation directions and timing of each activity. We could possibly add an extra day in the north if we take one from Jerusalem I appreciate any help that you can give us. Thank you
