Revised Itinerary for Israel--Input Needed

Jump to last reply

Since we are flying into Israel on a Friday evening, we decided to taxi from the airport to Jerusalem and start our trip there. Here is a tentative plan:

Friday/Sat Evenings - Jerusalem (possibly Sunday as well)

From that point, we are looking at staying in Safed, Akko, Haifa or Nazareth to visit Galilee sites.. Probably splitting the nights between one or two and then heading to Tel Aviv area for 1 evening. Driving from Tel Aviv to cross the border to Aquaba into Jordan.

My husband would like to stay on the water at some point (it will be hot being September). would you suggest Haifa or Akko as the better waterfront area. Also, we heard Nazareth is a "happening" city for dining/nightlife and we would like to see the biblical sites. Is it worth a stay or would we be happier with Safed or Rosh Pina as a base. And should we stay in Tel Aviv or is there something south that would be of interest?

Thanks again for your help....if you have a favorite restaurant or hotel in any of these areas, we would also like that input.
