This attaraction should be a world wonder, it is amazing , the tour from the top of the gardens down to the bottom takes a good few hours and involves a lot of steep steps so if you're not good on your feet opt for a guided tour of one or two levels in the middle.
The gardens and the golden dome at the bottom are also worth a tour, we entered without a tour but due to a family member and friends being historically familiar we had a very interesting tour.
its a full day attraction. Wonderful history - beautiful gardens and buildings and not to be missed.
TIP : Park Halfway down - get bus up to the top or a "sherut" then when your within walking distance if you do the bottom and top gardens.
It is very easy to take Egged bus #136 bus from Ben Gurion street (about 5 minutes walk from the port entrance for passengers) to Yaffe Nof street at the top of mount Carmel from where the free tour starts at noon in English
Noon time is the ONLY English tour that happens (except Wednesdays)
