“Eliezer” his servant will give us food and tea.

Short walk up the paved path of the Citadel (right beside the Ron hotel) - This was the largest Crusader fortress in the middle East. From the top, see one of the most spectacular views in the country (perhaps the world). On a clear day, we will see most of the Golan Heights, Kinneret, and Galil (Galilee).
