Wadi Nisnas is nothing but a little market, less interesting than most. Surprisingly the public toilets are very clean, or where so when I was desperate enough to try them. But come the Christmas season, it is joined with other religions and the wadi is...More

An authentic Arab area in the middle of Haifa. Nice. Not always clean. Local Arab food places and falafel.

It's very interesting and a nice easy walk around. Wear good walking shoes and take some water. Nice shopping and good places to eat after the tour.

Should you wish to visit an Oriental colourful market (Bazar) ? Come to Wadi Nisnas and enjoy the many little shops, the great Falafel stands, the fisherman place and especially the atmosphere.

Wadi Nisnas has white cobblestone streets and I enjoyed spotting the public art projects along the streets. Young guys might tell you outrageous stories about a piece if you stop long to look at one. Adds to the fun. Bakeries are everywhere and tempting. People...More

If you aren't going to any other towns in Israel, then this market would be ok. Other than that it is mainly just small store fronts. Might be pretty if you go during Christmas when decorations are up. Save yourself for better markets.

Hi, as others have said there is little point going down there on Sundays, as being a predominantly Christian area the shops will be closed. I visited it in midweek but I expect Friday-Saturday should also be good. I am not... More
