Description of the tour
Tour itinerary: Jerusalem → Tel Aviv-Yafo → Caesarea → Jerusalem
Jaffa is older than Jerusalem - the ruins of countless civilizations that have passed here over the past 4 thousand years have created a hill on which modern Jaffa stands. Narrow cobbled streets, a picturesque port, a flea market, the famous studios of Ilana Gur and Frank Meisler, an orange tree that sways on cables, St. Peter's Church, the house of Simon the tanner and the Bridge of Desires will become the object of our close attention for 2-3 hours.
Having traveled quite a bit, we will take a walk in the Tel Aviv port area - a wide wooden embankment, waves, seagulls and sailboats create a feeling of a constant celebration of life. Then we will move north to the famous Caesarea, the first man-made port in human history, once a flourishing city of the Roman-Byzantine period, the favorite brainchild of King Herod, with baths, hippodromes, amphitheatres, temples, tax offices and public latrines.
We will look at the ancient aqueduct and visit the wonderful Ralli Museum, a generous gift from the Rikonati family to the people of Israel, which displays the works of Dali, european masters of the 16th-19th centuries and an Andalusian-style palace. Not far from Caesarea is Ramat Hanadiv park, which offers a magnificent view of the Sharon Valley, where many exotic and not so exotic flowers and trees grow. In the center of the park, inside the rock, rests Baron Benjamin Yaakov Rothschild himself, whose generosity knew no reasonable limits.
