Where else can you see Phoenician, Roman, jewish, Islamic, Christian and Ottoman ruins in one place? Nicely interpreted with helpful films and brochures. Be sure to visit the small group of shops. One shop sells jewellery made from Roman glass excavated on site and designed by art students. Rebecca, the manager, donates proceeds to care for local abused cats. Totally worth an afternoon. Perhaps a few more toilets...

We started off going to the theater. Along with going into the theater and then the movie, we could get a sense of how extensive and powerful the Romans were about 2000 years ago. While in the theater we saw them setting up the stage for a show, which we wished we had have the time to take in. It is a spectacular setting, right next to the sea. We did have time to explore most of the ruins and go swimming. My grandkids - 5 to 12, loved the beach. It is a wonderful way, with small children to take in the sights and still have a place to go and relax.

I highly recommend to visit Caesarea.
It is a great place to travel with kids or with out .
You can learn about the fascinating roman history by the ruins that are about 2,000 years old!
There is also a roman theatre that is now a concert hall where only the greatest singers in Israel perform.
There is also a great short movie about the place and live holograms of the historical character’s that were in the city, you can talk to the holograms and ask them questions and they will explain the history of the place from there point of view. There are also great restaurants a nice beach and a fantastic view over the ocean.
For a guided tour of the city and other great places in Israel go to www.pilpeltravel.com

We didn't have much time with our tour, but what we saw was quite nice. We didn't get to see the movie, which was disappointing, but we still got to walk around a little. It hurt my soul to see the waves washing over the mosaics on the part of Herod's palace that is being reclaimed by the ocean, but I was happy with it otherwise.

Besides the Biblical significance of Caesarea, where both Paul and Philip spent time, the ruins and the exhibits are quite well done and worth a visit. There are two films to see, be sure to see them both, also a hologram presentation of various historical persons speaking about their part in the history of Caesarea. The Theater is in new condition, they were setting up the stage for a concert when we were there.
