Acre

 
Acre Acre, also known as Acco or Akko (or Ptolemais by the Greeks), is located on the northern end of Haifa Bay in northern Israel. This port city has a long history behind it. In the 13th century, the Crusaders made it the centerpiece of their efforts in the Holy Land and one of the most important commercial centers with as many as 40,000 residents. At one time or another, the city has been in Italian, Arab, British, and now (2005), Israeli hands. Acre is sometimes mistaken for another city mentioned in the bible, but is a different place. Yet, some amazing things happened here, most notably the defeat of an attack by Napoleon in 1799. There are remnants of outer walls and within the city is a walled old city -- a...
 

Beit Shean

 
Beit Shean This park is one of the largest and unique ancient sites in Israel. It includes the mound of the city which stood here as early as the 5th millennium BCE, and the Roman-Byzantine and Arab lower city, with its impressive remains. Biblical Bet She'an is mentioned in connection with King Saul's famous battle on Mount Gilboa. The Philistines, who controlled the region in the 10th century BCE and defeated the Israelites in that battle, displayed the bodies of Saul and his sons on its walls. Since the Hellenistic period the city was called Scythopolis or Nisa-scythopolis, after the nursemaid of Dionysus (the wine god) traditionally believed to have been buried here. In the Roman period, Scythopolis was one of the Decapoli...

Eilat

 
Eilat Eilat is a place to come to swim, sun, and tan - if you have lots of money to throw around. The once-upon-a-time, excellent beaches have become somewhat degraded with use and abuse - and many have been hijacked by the big seafront hotels. Away from the hotel area much of the rest of the town is unbelievably squalid. The formerly attractive seafront is filled by casual traders operating from shanty-like premises - great if you enjoy buying tat at inflated prices. You can sit on a camel, snorkel etc, but this is better and cheaper across the south-western border in Egypt. For a cultural holiday you need to go north to Jerusalem or Acre. At night there are quite a few things going on in Eilat. The nightlife is l...
