Zippori "Travel back in time" to the Talmudic period as you visit one of the main centers of the Sanhedrin. Rabbi Yehuda "Nassi" lived here, and it was here that he compiled the Mishna, around the year 200 CE. The remains date back to before 100 BCE, through the Roman and Byzantine periods. Walk through the amazing ancient conduit, which brought water to the city. You will be able to see some of Israel's most beautiful mosaic floors, one depicting the "Feast of Dionysos" and another, the "Nile Mosaic" dating back to the Roman period.

Safed - one of the Four Holy Cities according to Jewish tradition. Absorb the mystical atmosphere of this town as you visit some of the ancient and ethnic synagogues found huddled in the winding streets. Afterwards, you may like to stroll through the streets of the flourishing art village and browse through the many modern art galleries and workshops.

Akko (Acre), once the Crusader capital of the North and now a city of mixed Arab and Jewish populations. Walk on the city walls to the harbor, and through the colorful markets, to visit the huge underground Crusader Halls. These Halls were once part of the hostels established by the Crusaders as accommodations for their pilgrims and used as a hospital for their injured warriors.

Situated above these halls is the notorious prison that was built by the Turks and later used by the British, to imprison Jewish underground fighters during their struggle against British rule. Here, Jewish freedom fighters were led to the gallows with Hatikvah, the Israeli National anthem, on their lips. The big escape by the Jewish underground from the Akko Prison was one of the most influential events that changed the British public's opinion and aided to the removal of their military forces from Palestine.
