Haifa is the northern port of Israel, located 80 km from Tel-Aviv and 145 km from Jerusalem.
Haifa with its picturesque setting covers the slopes and top of Mount Carmel and overlooks a breathtaking harbor with steeply-terraced urban landscapes, nature reserves, and religious sites (including the Bahai Religion’s primary Temple with its gold dome).
Haifa is Israel’s fourth largest city of over 250,000 people. It is the city where a unique model for co-existence thrives, with Jewish, Moslem, Christian, Druze and Bahai communities intermingling and residing side by side in long-term peace.
Transportation from Israel’s National Ben-Gurion Airport near Tel Aviv to Haifa: Train and buses (except on the Sabbath), shared taxi and private taxis. About 1.5 hours.
