Mediterranean Coast, Galilee
After a hearty Israeli breakfast, we travel to the Mediterranean Coast, just as kings did, for Caesarea’s harbor, amphitheater, palaces and hippodrome. At the Caesarea Aqueduct, we will inspect the magnificent waterway and the colorful Roman glass on the shore. Those who wish can wade in the Mediterranean.
On the way to Mount Carmel, we will visit the overlook above the remarkable Baha’i Gardens and Haifa Bay. This World Heritage Site consists of nineteen majestic mountainside terraced gardens.
We will ride to Mount Carmel where Elijah confronted the prophets of Baal. Here, we will focus on Elijah’s message and the upcoming Battle of Armageddon in the Jezreel Valley below. On a clear day, we will see Meggido, Mount Gilboa, Mount Tabor, and Nazareth.
An evening teaching by Valerie Moody will follow dinner.
