Haifa is Israel’s chief port and home to 400,000 residents. Draped around the slopes of Mount Carmel, this spectacular 100-year-old city’s importance burgeoned in the 1920s and 1930s as Britain followed its League of Nations mandate over Palestine to create a Jewish homeland.

The bustling lower neighbourhood of Carmel is considered the port area, where Haifa’s daily business is overseen. The slopes of central Carmel are residential, and the mountaintop home to museums, many hotels and shops.
