    Nice place and very easy to see and get a feel for it in 2-3 hours. No need to burn out or over do it. A bit commercial but easy enough to see past all the retail and resturants  more »

    Walk around Caesarea National Park is impressive! As the ancient Caesarea, a city with a history in the 21 century, a significant part of the preserved ancient buildings which is connected with the name of King of Judea Herod the great. In the National Park, and perhaps it should be not less than one day, so much so that you get to the Park from Tel Aviv is not easy. We managed to hold the National Park just a few hours, and to consider, though not in detail, and Herod's Palace and hippodrome and baths, and the Temple of Augustus and Rome, and port, and an aqueduct, and the fortress walls and towers. Even had time to go to the local café, which, unlike other buildings of Caesarea, not able to neither the King nor Pontius Pilate, Herod, neither Apostolou Pavlou, neither Saladin nor Richard the Lionheart, neither Louis Saint who, individually, some time before us also visited Caesarea with tourist and not very tourist objectives.

    I wasn't expecting to discover such places in Israel. A site of Roman ruins in excellent condition, facing the sea and offering an amazing view. Buildings are many (racetrack, theatre, baths, houses...), the visit is very nice, the followers of archaeological sites and Roman will take full eyes. The site has several restaurants and souvenir shops. We have lunch at the restaurant: coffee port, the meal was delicious and very pleasant service. I recommend this site
