Israel & the Palestinian Territories - Haifa & the North Coast (Chapter)
This is the Haifa & the North Coast chapter from Lonely Planet’s Israel guide-book.

The principal settlement is Haifa, a mixed Jewish-Arab city that often surprises visitors with its openness and tolerance; sprawling across Mt Carmel, it has stun-ning views and a wealth of museums.
