#11 of 17 in Neighborhoods in Israel
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."

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.
