Israel Culinary Tour - Day 3

Day 3 Visit Tsipori National Park, with its ruins of a Second-Temple era Jewish city, where Judah Hanasi redacted the Mishnah some 1800 years ago. The beautiful villa, the triclinium dining room and the "Mona Lisa of the Galilee" mosaic floor with its banqueting motifs, suggest that food and wine were important then as now. Stop at Moshav Tsipori for a taste of their honey and organic olive oil. Proceed to Acre. The remains of the Crusader town, dating from 1104 to 1291, lie almost intact both above and below today's street level, providing an exceptional picture of the layout and structures of the capital of the medieval Crusader kingdom, along with touches of the Ottoman fortified market town Acre was during the 18th and 19th centuries. Explore the Knights Halls, the Al-Jazaar Mosque, the bathhouse with its multi-media display, and the new ethnic museum, built right into the rooms of the old wall. Stroll through the alleys of the Old City, stop in at its spice shops, and taste the local humus and other Middle Eastern and Mediterranean delicacies. Continue to the Port city of Haifa; visit its picturesque German Templer Colony, the Baha'i Gardens and the Carmel National Park on the outskirts of the city.
