PBT Visits Rosh HaNikra, Ein Hod and Binyamina Winery

On Friday, while some dancers explored Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee, some dancers went to explore some of the northern regions sites for nature and art lovers.  They went to Rosh HaNikra, Ein Hod and Binyamina Winery.

The Rosh HaNikra grottoes is a geologic formation in Israel, located on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, in the Western Galilee. It is a white chalk cliff face which opens up into spectacular grottos. Since it was located somewhat near our hotel in Acre, it was a great day trip.

After visiting Rosh HaNikra, some of the dancers took a trip to Ein Hod.  Ein Hod is an artists’ village, the only one of its kind in Israel and one of the few such villages in the world. Nestled in natural vegetation and bordered by an ancient olive grove, it lies on the western slopes of Mt Carmel, in a breathtaking landscape looking out toward the sea and the Crusader fortress of Atlit.

After Ein Hod, they were able to get a tour of a winery in Israel, Binyamina.
