Tour to the Western Galilee of Israel

Written by

The Western Galilee is the true essence of a Galilean landscape: Green mountains covered with beautiful Mediterranean forests extending all the way down into the sea, beautiful beaches, ancient towns, and hidden mountain villages.

Safed is a lovely old Jewish city, with cobblestone streets, old synagogues, interesting alleys and an artists quarter. It is a hilltop town that should be visited while you are in Israel. Safed is where Kabbalah started so you can feel the mysticism when you walk the streets. At 900 meters above sea level, Safed is Israel’s highest altitude city, nestled in the mountains of the Upper Galilee.
