Friday was a busy adventure filled day! We headed north all the way to border with Lebanon and the grottoes of Rosh Hanikra. We took the world’s shortest cable car ride down to the grottoes, where we walked the narrow slippery passageways decorated by stalagmites and stalactites in a natural maze of rock and water.
From Rosh Hanikra we went on to visit the city of Acre (Akko). The city boasts a history of centuries and there’s a certain magic to knowing you’re treading the same ground as Napoleon did. We learned about the city’s history, walked the narrow alleys and markets and had an amazing time.
On our way back towards Tel Aviv, we stopped at the city of Caesarea. The city had one of the biggest ports in the world 2000 years ago, built by king Herod, who some consider the greatest builder of the land of Israel in history.
Since it was a Friday (a shorter day in Israel) we returned to Tel-Aviv to relax and enjoy the rest of our day by the pool and at the beach and prepare for dinner.
