The lowest – "Down Town" (In Hebrew: "HaIr HaTachtit" - "העיר התחתית") is the center of commerce and industry including the Port area.
The middle level is on the slopes of Mount Carmel and consists of older residential neighborhoods;
The upper level consists of modern neighborhoods looking over the lower tiers. The Carmel Centre where the venue is located is on this level. From here there are views across the Galilee Hills region of Israel towards Rosh HaNikra and the Lebanese border.
Haifa has a large number of beaches on the coast.
The Carmel Mountain on which Haifa is built have several valleys, called wadi(s) or vadi(s) (ואדי / وادي) in Hebrew and Arabic. The three main ones are: wadi Lotem, wadi Amik and wadi Si'ach. For the most part these valleys are undeveloped natural corridors that run up through the city from the coast to the top of the mountain.
Marked hiking paths traverse these areas and they provide habitat for wildlife including Wild Boar, Golden Jackals, Egyptian Mongoose, Chameleons and much more.
Thus Haifa, though a relatively large city, often has wild boar passing through resident’s gardens while the cry of jackals is almost a nightly serenade through much of the city.
