  • Each part of ancient Caesarea is top rated and super interesting and so is the theater. It is still in use. You can explore it in detail going up and down the rows of seats and trying the acoustics. T...  more »
  • For lovers of history it is a prerequisite of your trip in Israel. This fortified port directed by Herodes Builder which includes a theatre exceptionally preserved with a racetrack in full restoration. This site gives you what can do the human genius. Can be realized that several builders have succeeded it. St. Louis, King of France, stayed a year in this place to increase defenses. We have thousands of years of civilian and military techniques. C is great to do with children.

  • Our guide wanted to prove the acoustics. He asked a couple young men to climb up to the top of the theater. From the floor he quietly spoke to them, and they heard perfectly.  more »

  • Unpretentiously walked in the park and was surprised by a very beautiful place, full of history and natural beauty from the sea. I recommend the entrance that gives access to the theater/film, because it brings some interesting information and curiosities, actually 2 movies in 2 different places. I visited alone but obviously groups are welcome. I saw at least 3 dining options, plus a few snack bars. The day I visited it was a holiday and the park was full of families and children, strolling and piquenique.
  • Have you ever wanted to wander around a hippodrome, pondering the fact that you're really standing in an ancient Roman ruin? This place is for you. Learn more about the many sieges that befell this town, and it's extensive history as a port. Lots of old ruins. Some in good shape, some not. It's a bit of a drive, but well worth it.
  • Unique place. caesarea port. Beautiful sea view. Restaurants & boutique Shops around Roman-era archaelogical findings.⚘
  • Even not came in due to very high tickets price! How can this be a family go out option?? Why not to make it much cheaper to have a more affordable culture sites??
  • quality sound. A good place for performances you can see the stage from any angle. A good thing even if no ticket left in closer sit .
