As you travel from Haifa to Nazareth, you pass farm settlements, the most important of which are Yagur and Allonim. Yagur is one of the country's oldest kibbutzim, founded in 1922. About 30 or 40 minutes out of Haifa, be sure to stop at the observation signpost on your right, after climbing into the foothills of Lower Galilee -- the view of the Yizreel Valley spread out below is one of the loveliest in Israel.
