By strictly public transportation I would take the train to Tel Aviv and from there a bus. However, you are looking at a journey of almost 3 hours. I would reconsider splurging for a taxi!

You can take the train from the airport directly to Haifa (Lev HaMifratz station) and the bus to Nazareth from there.

mbgg-- I read your post and realize I definitely had brain freeze. How I could write train and bus and NOT write train to Haifa is beyond me.

Innerchi--definitely ignore my instructions and follow mbgg's.

While mbgg's offer would be normally the best way to get from Ben Gurion int'l airport to Nazareth, landing at 19:00 to the airport, taking the 19:56 train to Haifa - will cause you to miss the last bus from Haifa to Nazareth.

Therefore, it's rdglady's suggestion that suits here, since you will get early enough to Tel Aviv not to miss the last bus from there to Nazareth.

Directions: take the train from Ben Gurion int'l airport's station to Tel Aviv central station ("Savidor"), after exiting the Tel Aviv side of the station (the station has a second exit at another city - Ramat Gan), take a right and walk a few minutes past the parking lot till you get to the bus stop strip on the main road. One of the stops (on the right side, northwards) will have signage for bus 826. This bus goes to Nazareth-Ilit but also pass at Nazareth.
