The Port of Haifa is the largest of Israel’s three major international seaports, which include the Port of Ashdod, and the Port of Eilat. It has a natural deep water harbour which operates all year long, and serves both passenger and cargo ships. It is one of the largest ports in the eastern Mediterranean in terms of freight volume and handles over 22 million tons of goods each year. The port employs over 1,000 people, with the number rising to 5,000 when cruise ships dock in Haifa. The Port of Haifa lies to the north of Haifa’s Downtown quarter at the Mediterranean, and stretches to some 3 kilometers along the city’s central shore with activities ranging from military, industrial and commercial next to a nowadays-small passenger cruising facility.

When you look at the gardens, remember they were built through voluntary contributions from members of the faith; giving whatever they could for the glory of God. Most people working there are volunteers, demonstrating their love for the prophet of this age, Baha’u'allah, and his teachings of unity, equality of man and woman, respect for the environment and so much more. Pilgrimage there is a sacred duty, performed at least once in a Baha’is life wherever possible. Being there is a delight, though pray for good weather as now if the rains fall heavily visitor safety means the gardens will be shut. Go too to Acre (or Acca) nearby and see the ancient walled city that was a prison in the time of the Ottoman Empire and where the Bahai leader, family and followers were held for many years yet rose above the squalor that their oppressors thought would wipe out their faith.
This is a very Arabic area, with mosques and bazaars. Not a good place to be after sunset but good to walk the main streets and by the harbour, enter the tunnels built by crusaders and the citadel where the Baha’is were first imprisoned and in the 20th century where Israeli freedom fighters were kept during the British mandate. This is a fascinating, deeply historical area of Israel.

Abboud Tours was started nearly five years ago on the promise that nothing beats personalized service, experience, and attention to detail. While many Internet sites promise special deals, travellers are often unaware of restrictions, exceptions and fine print. Making the right choices based on price alone is not always the best course of action for travellers. We hear too many regrets from travellers that they didn’t call us first.
Abboud recognized the need for experienced agents in the Internet age. While many agents succumb to the pressure of bargain Internet sites, Abboud recognized the niche for knowledgeable and experienced travel professionals. Many clients learned that they actually saved money by seeking the help of Abboud Tours

During the Crusader occupation, troops of pious hermits started to live in the caves in imitation of Elijah the Prophet in the 12th century and within a few hundred years, they were organized into the Carmelite order. Construction of the Stella Maris Lighthouse, Church and Carmelite Monastery was started in 1836.
At the beginning, there was a monastery complex which was a hospital for Napoleon’s soldiers during his unsuccessful blockade of Akko in 1799. Structured in dazzling Italian marbles, the Stella Maris Church looks outstanding. Here on the dome you will see the colourful paintings which illustrate the episodes from the Old Testament, by Brother Luigi Poggi. The statue of Virgin Mary, carved from cedar of Lebanon, is also noteworthy.
Just in the right of the entryway, there you will see a museum with artifacts from the Byzantine church and a small souvenir shop. The scenic beauty is outstanding!
