Haifa in detail

Cruise ships arriving at Israel's largest port offer their passengers the opportunity to visit either nearby Tel-Aviv, or the more popular Jerusalem, which lies just 70km (43 miles) inland from Ashdod.

The port itself has origins dating back nearly 4,000 years, and is the subject of numerous mentions in the Bible. Over the centuries, it has been home to numerous cultures, but the modern city sprang to life in the mid-1950s following the establishment of modern Israel. It's an important industrial centre, but there is some cultural interest in the city itself.

New terminal facilities make arrival here a pleasant experience for cruise passengers.
