Hello everybody, I would really appreciate some help. My wife and I are docking in Haifa next month. MSC Magnifica arrives Friday 1 PM, and leaves Saturday 8 PM.
I have booked a room for that night in a hotel next to the Old City of Jerusalem. Our time in Jerusalem will be the most important part of a two week trip, so I want to make sure we enjoy it as much as possible.
My concerns are basically two..
1) Transportation: My first choice would have been to rent a car in Haifa and return it next day. Since that seems to be impossible, where would you recommend us to get a taxi at Haifa? And most important, how do I get one on Saturday in Jerusalem, to take me back to Haifa port?
2) Currency: Should I change some dollars to NIS in Italy (or on the cruise)? Or can I change at Haifa port just before getting a taxi?
Thank you very much.
