Haifa Shore Excursion: Nazareth and Galilee Day Trip

66 reviews
The city of Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee are must-sees for anyone who wishes to visit Christianity’s holiest sites. While in port in Haifa, travel by minivan with a driver-guide to show you each location. Roam the Capernaum ruins; visit the Basilica of the Annunciation and Mount of Beatitudes; and stop at Capernaum, the home of St. Peter.

my friends and I visited this place on a Shabbath day during the covid time. There are so many amazing artworks there from the local artists and they all have the numbers on the map, so it makes our visit very easy. My favorite spot is an old second-hand book shop even it doesn't have so many English books but I found a good one there. Highly recommended!

As you can see by reading the reviews and the commenst from lea, you must pre coordinate your trip to Ein Hod. We did andhad a lovely experience. We had a tour of the artists village and then met with a few artists before having our own workshop with Lea - one of the artists. We did screen printing which was loads of fun. Only one of the four of us was an artist but the rest of us were still able to enjoy the art project. It was a highlight of the trip. A very interesting and unique community of 150 families in Ein Hod that are all artists. It would be hard to experience the village without having a tour guide. Many of the galleries are in peoples homes so not always open of accessible for those that just drop in. Definitey a lovely off the beaten path kind of experience. I would highly recommend.

Ein Hod is high above the sea between Zichron Yaakov and Haifa, so it's not a bad launching point for northern coast attractions, and a rental in the village is what brought us there. Since this review is on the town as a tourist destination, not on our rental (which was lovely), this review is geared to the day tripper. Full disclosure: extreme heat and humidity did make us grumpy while exploring, so factor that into the review. What is interesting about Ein Hod is that the village was established by a community of like-minded artists who had a vision of living and working together and cross-fertilizing their creative efforts. Many years later, the original generation of artists are elderly, their students are middle-aged, and if there is a new generation of artists and creation going on, we missed it. If you plan to visit, you should book a tour to gain some perspective on the village, and even plan a workshop with one of the few remaining folks who offers an artistic experience. Most of the place was a tired mix of some very unique (and expensive looking) villas and some very plain houses surrounded by lots of debris (one would assume these are the artists' homes??). One small square contains the accessible galleries or stores where art can be enjoyed and purchased. Many other small signs throughout the village indicate other home galleries, but whoever we called was away, although one kind person offered us to go into her studio and call her, and then pay her over the phone with a credit card, which was cute. But for us, the Dada museum and it's ten foot high "F-k Off" sculpture of bones that greets you at the entrance was off-putting. I thought I was familiar with Dada, but their explanations were even darker and more nihilistic than I'd ever seen before. Dada is a highly specific strain of art, and since this is the most accessible and happening thing in the village, that was a disappointment. It's hard to explain, but they had a "NOT-ART" exhibition, which basically blasts all other forms of art -- the whole angry attitude and vibe was pretty much of a turn off for us. If that is Ein Hod's best foot forward, I could see why the crowds were not packing the place. It's a pity because I think Ein Hod has potential, but to bring in a newer generation, it would probably need to create a school or large area with resident artists coming for stays of a few months, something to bring some liveliness back.

You need a car to get here but once you find it you will love it. About two dozen artisans work and sell their wares here - art, jewelry, clothing, pottery. Beautifully laid out "village" with interesting architecture and statues.
