I heartily agree with member Orenvil's review: Stella Maris is a great place to start your tour of Haifa. You can either drive to the top (plenty of free public parking at the edge of the hill) or take the cable car up from the...More

Besides the history and the significance in region, the monastery is a beautiful place to observe. The lighthouse is a good look out point.
