  • An amazing site that needs a good curator. Has too many commercial establishments (mostly restaurants) right on site - bizarre for a national heritage site. To avoid these altogether I recommend entering from the south entrance where the more interesting sites are anyway.
  • Great historic place, there are many good restaurants. This place is a great place to dive! All the ancient attractions are just a few in compare to the underwater history. A must dive in Israel.
  • Amazing piece of preserved history with the opportunity to get up close to the restoration and ongoing excavation. Reasonable entry fee (unless you're a real archaeology fan then the restricted entry ticket is good enough to occupy you for about four hours). Usual tourist shops and cafes but not too overpriced. Afterwards drive into Caesarea and look at the Aqueduct.
  • The ancient site of Caesarea has a lot of beautiful carved artifacts and buildings. The old theater being the most impressive of all. Be sure to check this out when in the vicinity. The area is quite stretched out so be sure you're able to walk some distance.
  • Nice place, a work in progress of the restoration but still nice to see and nice restaurants inside. Helena was delicious!
