I'll be travelling to Israel this fall and will be in Haifa for 5 days.
I am using it as my home base while we visit the various Christian sites in northern Israel - We will be renting a car and taking a number of day trips from Haifa -
I am not sure where my home base should be - I will be travelling from Jerusalem to Haifa for 5 days - then driving back to Tel Aviv and flying to Eilat.
While in Haifa I do not have a set itinerary but we plan to visit Stella Maris, Bahai, Ein Hod, Hosh Hanikra, Akka, Caesarea, Nazareth, Sea of Gallile, Tiberias, Elijah's cave, see the migrating birds. Clearly I can't do all of these things in 5 days - but definately plan to do the christian sites.
Is Haifa even the best place to make as my home base? Any advice?
If so, would you recommend I stay in Carmel Center or closer to the water?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
