  • Caesarea is located on the Mediterranean coast, halfway between Haifa and Tel Aviv., about 45 km from each of them. Caesarea became the capital of the Roman province of Judea, a city built by Herod the Great in the 1st century BC and named after Emperor Caesar Augustus. The city of Caesarea (also known as Caesarea Marítima, Caesarea Palestine or simply, Caesarea), was a notorious port city during the Roman and Byzantine eras And in so much history, it is imposing to walk above the sand of this city. It is worth touring its racecourse or sat and watching the sea in the amphitheatre, probably the best preserved construction and in which even today there are concerts and plays. Following the path you will reach herod's palace, in a privileged location, practically hanging over the Mediterranean. Although what remains of the palace are only a few small vestiges, If you keep walking, suddenly you will have the feeling of teleporting to the Byzantine era just by taking a few steps, when you find the outer walls and access doors that surround the city.

  • Surprisingly very good experience. We came without much expectation and got a very informative tour by Daniel. He explained a lot about the background of the items and local history and was generally very nice and welcoming. The museum has a lot to offer for anyone who is interested in the local history. If you have an hour spare then we would definitely recommend it.
  • Loved it! It's a small museum takes about an hour to get to see everything. Inexpensive (only 18 ₪). The guide was very kind and informative. Great to visit before you go to Caesarea's National Park
