    The beauty of the Roman ruins and the sea
    The Caesarea site, a real gem of the Mediterranean coast, offers phenomenal vistas of the sea and atmospheric Roman ruins. King Herod received this beautiful city and port from the Romans and, in his usual lavish style, he built luxurious palace for himself, the remnants of which you can see today. Back in the days of Ancient Rome Caesarea had pretty sophisticated water system and the port was an important trading place on the coast. The restored Roman Amphitheater faces the sea and is a popular place for concerts now. The beauty of the sea and the Roman ruins is hard to describe… my pictures might tell the story a little better.

    Caesarea Maritime - a beautiful place on the Mediterranean coast
    Caesarea Maritime is an ancient port fortified by the famous King Herod over two thousand years ago. The city was a very important and key place in ancient history until it disappeared and turned into ruins. But archaeologists came here and found many interesting artifacts. This is primarily a Roman theater, elements of the ruins of palaces, mosaics, Roman baths, water supply systems, hippodrome, port and much more. This is a very interesting place to visit.

    Where ancient traders bought and sold
    Caesarea is an ancient port city. Ancient seafarers plied heir trade here. Traders from all over the Mediterranean Sea gathered here to buy and sell. Caesarea is right before the ancient ocean. The Mediterranean Sea was "the center of the world" in ancient times. The Roman Ampitheater is also interesting. Caesaria is worth a detour.

    Amphitheater is a large venue
    The National Park section of the ancient Roman city of Caesarea is popular with travelers and locals. The name "Caesarea" is derived from the title for the Roman ruler, which is quite common name in the empire of Rome. There are a number of things to see in the Caesarea National Park, including the harbor. In times gone by, Caesarea was important Mediterranean port. The Roman amphitheater will hold 6,000 spectators; it is one of the largest venues in modern-day Israel.

If you love history, you're gonna love this archeological park! The Roman amphitheater, the Hippodrome, the Aqueduc and the ruins of Herode's Palace, built for Roman Emperor Augustus, are really something to see. You can even see Cleopatra's Pool ;-)

If you have no other experience of a Roman City outside of Italy, Caesarea makes a passable stop, but if you have seen other examples, this one was for us not worth taking time away from the many, many phenomenal older and more recent non-Roman sites -- and even less-restored Roman sites -- in Israel and Jordan.

Worth visiting. It is one hour drive from Tel Aviv in Haifa district. During opening hours there is free but after that it is free to visit harbor many part of the remains but Caesaria Martima is close
Caesarea National Park was once a port city, and was rebuilt and expanded upon under the Roman Empire’s King Herod in the year 10 BCE. After that, it operated as a navy base, and became the capital of the Roman province of Judea, where it took on a central role in Christianity. Because of this Caesarea is referenced several times in the New Testament.

Such a historical place with every step being something to behold. This place is around from about 4th Centry BCE and you can see stuff relevant to all the various civilisations that existing in Israel.

An archeological site with a sea view...the ruins of the palace pools go out into the water. Perhaps my favorite ruins in Israel. So amazing. The hippodrome is fantastically well preserved. I guess everything was covered in sand that preserved it all and they have only excavated like 10 percent of the whole complex so far...what else will they find?
