Licensed tour guide Adam Budenstein calls Safed (Tzfat) a "beautiful, mystical, magical place. Every stone has a different story to it."

Surrounded by the mountains and forests of the green Upper Galilee, Safed is world-famous for its winding alleyways and old majestic synagogues, its Artists Quarter and its musicians, its history of kabbalah and spirituality.

"But we’re not disconnected from the rest of the world at all," says Budenstein. "This is a place where people actually come to connect and I would invite you to come and connect yourselves."
