Wadi Nisnas, Haifa
(3.6/5 based on 150 reviews on the web)
Haifa's Arab neighborhood, Wadi Nisnas remains known for its busy marketplace, stone buildings, and charming alleyways. When walking down this district's historical streets and through its market, you may have the feeling that you've left the city and entered an ancient village. Home to 8,000 residents, the area burst onto the world stage when author Sami Michael used it as a setting for his 1987 novel "Trumpet in the Wadi." A visit to Wadi Nisnas represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Haifa vacation builder to plot your vacation.
