Getting around hilly Haifa, visiting its attractions, a 10-minute ride on Israel’s only underground railway, the Carmelit, will transport a passenger from Gan Ha’em at Central Carmel down to Paris Square, the downtown terminal.

The Carmelit began running in 1959, the brainchild of the mayor of Haifa, Abba Khoushy, with funding and construction by a French company.
