The old city was built by Herod the Great and served as the administrative center of the province of Judea. Highlights include the hippodrome, Roman Theater, water channels and promenade along the ancient port. The difference between old and current Caesarea is fascinating – while ancient Caesarea is bustling with tourists who come to see the wonders of the unique buildings built by King Herod, modern Caesarea’s residents enjoy exclusive and posh livelihood, golf courses and horseback riding.
Visiting the Caesarea National Park takes you back in time thousands years ago as you see the towers, remains of the Caesarea Castle and horse races in the hippodrome. Being a port city, don’t miss walking along the harbor of Caesarea and the beautiful beach, visit the artists’ square and rest in a futuristic café with a great view. If you wish for a Bar Mitzvah tour in Israel or Bat Mitzvah tour in Israel, Caesarea is a popular destination among many Israelis who celebrate their special day.
