    Visit the cave where he meditated the Prophet Elijah was an amazing experience, I'm sure to return soon to meditate there longer!

    Big dissapointment! It's supposed to be an interesting and sacred place for different religiouses. Nothing to show for Islam or Christianity. No english expanations only hebrew.  more »

    Though there are signs to get to the lower cave of Elijah, once you get to the top, we found the directions to be vague. Women need to cover their hair and enter on the left side. Men enter on the right side. The grounds are not well maintained. It is a very a humble experience.

    This is not a cave as much as a building. If youre into that stuff spiritually, by all means, but honestly it's not worth more than a 5 minute stop in. Just remember to wear something somewhat modest, they have head scarves for women if you want though no pressure to take, at least not when I visited but I've heard others have had trouble.

    holy place, so take that into account when visiting. The place may seem a bit neglected sometimes.

Where to stay in Haifa

Look in the German Colony district close to the port to find the main bulk of the accommodations in Haifa. With its proximity to many of the urban attractions, this area has become a modern tourism hot spot. Here, you'll discover a rich mix of luxury hotels and boutiques set in well-maintained old blocks, as well as particularly budget-friendly options such as guesthouses. Alternatively, the coastline provides plenty of upmarket hotels in the more developed neighborhoods, and a scattering of guesthouses and resorts close to the sandy beaches.
