    On Saturday, on shabbat, I went with my spouse to Caesarea from Tel Aviv (less than 1 hour travel time). It is a very nice place, from which we entered we were super well. Tickets allow you to enter various rooms and listen to audio on the history of the port of Caesarea. They have remodeled a Roman Colosseum, which use it to perform concerts. Very nice. On the edge of the harbour there are several restaurants, most are priced high as a good tourist place. There is the option of diving or have fun in the Sea (it is a posa, there are no waves for being lined with stones and rocks) ideal for the little ones of the family. Totally worth visiting it!

    Roman theater in Caesarea National Park "is the oldest of the discovered in Israel. Theatre for 4000 spectators was built during the reign of King Herod and acted in a few hundred years, until the Byzantine period. After the restoration of the theatre is used now as a city scene. Theater, no doubt, looks great! In fact, as is each tourist a great opportunity to touch, literally, to ancient history.

    Having a professional experience of more than 40 years in construction I'm always thrilled when I encounter a Roman Theatre in perfect working order and enviable acoustics even with the available technology of today would be hard to beat ... I don't know who was the architect or Builder but I envy your ability that lasts until today, is the place where your soul be rest in peace-your work is still admired .... Notable
