Tour Information

Overview       4-6 h

Together with Jerusalem, Hebron and Tiberias, Safed is one of the four holy cities of Israel.  After a visit to this magical city, you'll begin to understand how this magnificent mountaintop setting became the center of Kabbala and Jewish mysticism.

 

Safed is the highest city in Israel and the capital of the Galilee. In modern times, the liberation of Safed by the Palmach was one of the most dramatic chapters of the War of Independence.

Rosh Pina was one of the first Jewish villages in the 19th century Galilee. Visit the old houses in the heart of town which have been beautifully preserved with their cobblestone streets. In the center is the old administrative center built in 1885 when Rosh Pina was supported by Baron Rothschild.
