Tzfat (Safed) – artistic and spiritual, religious and bohemian, busy on weekdays and almost totally shut down on Shabbat.
We only spent a day (and a night) there. It was Friday. When we were leaving in the late afternoon, winding labyrinth of cobbled streets was deserted and all of the myriad shops, galleries and cafes were closed.
Sea of Galilee and resort town of Tiberias met us with amazing pastel colours. Mountains across the lake were pale pink and the water was light blue and wonderfully quiet and flat. It was in striking contrast with our next stop on that day – Nazareth 🙂
