Description

Caesarea is famous for being one of the most beautiful, photogenic, and important biblical sites in Israel. This ancient city was established from scratch by King Herod the Great, some 2000 years ago, and became one of the most luxurious cities of the Roman world, even serving as the capital of Israel. This tour will take you across this exquisite archaeological site - we will see a Roman amphitheatre, Pontius Pilate Palace, the possible location of St. Paul's prison, remains of the old port, and amazing marine vistas. Find out how its location, the port, and other reasons made Caesarea an alluring destination for settlers and conquerors for nearly a millennia.
