Safed

4.2
The birthplace of the Kabbalah movement, Safed boasts a mystical and spiritual heritage as one of the country's four holy cities. Trips to Safed tend to be refreshing and contemplative affairs, with the cool, clean mountain air sweeping through the old cobblestone streets and over vine-covered buildings. Safed has long been known for its art scene, with many studios facing directly out onto the street--even the synagogues here are noted for their highly decorative interiors. Use our Israel holiday maker to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Safed.

Where to stay in Safed

Perhaps the most popular way to experience Safed when visiting for a day or two is to stay in a guesthouse. Small and often run by local families, guesthouses sit in the old town area and the artists' quarter and introduce visitors to the rhythm and traditions of the local life. Larger hotels can be found scattered around town, with some older mansions offering grand rooms and additional facilities, such as onsite restaurants.
