The ancient port town of Caesarea, built by King Herod around 25 BCE, sits along the rich blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Mostly a tourist destination with only 4500 residents, Caesarea interplays its modern style with ancient relics all throughout the city. While walking the ruins from its Hellenistic period (3rd century BCE) through its Crusader period (12th century), you’ll witness toga workshops, cultural festivals, and the famed Roman amphitheater. The 2,000 year old theater still hosts hundreds of concerts and performances each year.
#Protip: Take the stage on the ancient Roman amphitheater and witness one of the best acoustics ever.
