  • The city's name is a tribute to the Roman Emperor Augustus Caesar. In Roman Theatre, built by Herod, there is a stone inscription on Pontius Pilate, the Governor of Judea between 26 and 36 ad, known by the passage in which delegates to the people the ability to save or not Jesus Christ. Also houses the ruins of the Palace of Herod. The theater was restored and still works with shows and on-site parts. Beautiful landscape, in front of the Mediterranean Sea.

  • it is largely restored, and watching a ballet or a show must be amazing. seeing it during the day one sees how much has been restored vs the original status 
  • An unusual combination of ancient and new, antiquity and modern galleries, beautiful seashore on the landscape of the Roman Empire fort. Lots of excellent restaurants and coffee shops and good atmosphere. A great way to spend half a day of easy leisure. Recommended!
  • Ancient Roman city in fault good condition. Official must see in Israel. Loss of tourists - of you prefer quieter with even better preservation head north to beit shean.
  • A very nice historical park with many archeological excavations of ancient port city of Caesarea. It's a very interesting place for history and archeology lovers. It is also a very romantic place, especially in the evening/night time, offering many good restaurants with all kinds of food, but especially sea food.
  • A great archaeological place where you feel set back thousands of years ago. Being at the shore gives the area a special atmosphere.
  • Absolutely breathtaking. Bring water with you. It gets very hot and there is little shade
