Israel - Coastal Israel

The Roman port city combines ancient structures, archaeology and a picture-perfect harbour. Built by Pontius Pilate, two millennia ago, Caesarea was one of the largest and most magnificent ports on the Mediterranean, with massive piers stretching out into the sea to accommodate dozens of ships.

The city of Caesarea once contained a giant hippodrome, an aqueduct and a theatre. Still, then a thousand years later, the Crusaders arrived and erected an enormous fortress, and finally, the Ottomans, turned it into a seaside town.

Today, the ancient Roman theatre is a vibrant venue for concerts, the Crusader fortress is thrilling to visit, and the Ottoman harbour and beach are full of cafes, restaurants and a visitors’ centre.
