Wadi Nisnas is a maze of alleys, old streets and staircases where green markets, bakeries, restaurants and artisans workshops abound. The majority of inhabitants are arabs, christians mostly who stayed behind in the 1948 war while most of haifa arabs escaped.
The area makes for a very tranquil strolling but really comes alive on fridays and saturdays (sundays are dead) with hundreds of visitors walking around sampling local delicacies and shopping in the many bakeries and delis.
The location is slso great, a few minutes walk from the german colony and the lower bahai gardens on one side and the comercial Hadar neighbourhood on the other.
As there are many cultural and historical aspects to the area, a local guide would definitely enhance the experience.

I had never spent much time in Haifa but a day trip here really made me fall in love with the city. Walking through the shuk was so much fun and each shopkeeper and vendor was so kind and welcoming. They would even take the time to explain how they were making the dishes they were selling (such as stuffed grape leaves and pastries). I typically hate visiting outdoor markets because of the crowds but I just loved exploring here, trying all of the delicious food, and meeting the wonderfully kind locals.

The concept of multiple religions and nationalities living side by side just fascinated me. I walked through on Saturday and it rather calm and peaceful. Also visited the local bakery there and ate some fresh pitas (open on Saturday morning).

Once this was an unpleasant area in Haifa and during the 50th it was a center for riots. Today it remains an authentic Arab neighborhood in the multi-religions town of Haifa. Love walking through the narrow streets with stone houses around as well as the small market. It is a center of attraction during the month of December celebrating the festival of festivals.

My wife grew up in Haifa and she would go here for the bread and meat shops. It's not a tourist destination though as it's not developed but there are two great falafel places here - Ha Ezkenim and Michelle. Look up either on tripadvisor.

Lots of shops and people to see. Plenty of small place to eat or get snacks. You can spend 1+ hours walking around no problem.

Treat yourself to an exciting walk through Wadi Nisnas. The Wadi is decorated for Christmas with numerous artistic display. It is called the walk of freedom. Do not miss it during the month of December. There is excellent falafel, Arab home food, restaurants, stores and fruit and vegetable market.
