6 AM?

Kibbutz Ayelet Hashachar (upper Galilee). 4 PM?

 

Caesarea’s magnificent 1st century BC Roman amphitheater seated 4000.  Even then, Ticketum­Mastorum charged  maximus shekels or two doves, no bull.  The site still witnesses outdoor concerts.


 

Herodian-era Roman waterworks, which ducted their aqua two millennia ago.

Or here for a look at Haifa.

 

 

Acre (Akko) is on the Mediterranean, ±30 miles due west of the north end of the Sea of Galilee.  It was a Crusader stronghold in the 1100’s.  I suspect Heaven owns 50%…and then there’s Hell’s half Acre.
