Caesarea is located halfway between Tel Aviv and Haifa.

Map of the area:

Note: you can click on the map to enlarge it.

As you can see, there are two entrances, and next to each, you can find free parking.

  • The Northern entrance, Crusader Gate entry, is marked as number #1. It leads to Caesarea port.
  • The southern entrance, the Roman theater entry, is marked as number #35. It lead to the other part of Caesarea’s old city, Caesarea Maritima.

And you can go from one part of the old city to another using the gate at #23 (you need to have a valid ticket on you).

Caesarea Maritima is a national park, and it can be visited only during the mentioned opening hours. If you are coming within those hours, you need to buy an entrance ticket to see the port and the Maritima. And in case you are visiting after opening hours, then the entrance to Caesarea harbor will be free (and Caesarea Maritima is closed).


The easiest way to get to this national park is by car. Just enter “Caesarea National Park” into the navigation app, and it will get you there. Moreover, there are many free parking spaces on site.

Reaching this national park by public transport is inconvenient. You can take the bus (for example, Egged line #910 from Tel Aviv to Haifa) to Or Akiva interchange. And from there walk for 2.5 km, or take a taxi. Another option would be to take the train to Caesarea station. But the train station is even further away (than the bus stop), and you need to choose either a bus or a taxi.

Here is a link to Moovit, where Caesarea National Park is already set as the destination. Change the origin from Jerusalem to your location, and you will get the updated directions.

The Modern City of Caesarea

Caesarea is a town in Israel located on the Mediterranean coast. And it is famous for the ancient city that became Caesarea National Park. But, there are other touristic attractions as well – for example, the Ralli Museum and Aqueduct Beach. You can find additional information about the city at Caesarea.

Caesarea Maritima

As I mentioned before, you can visit this area only during the opening hours of Caesarea National Park. And I took the following sunset photo from the harbor while the National Park was already closed.

The multiple rooms and the Hippodrome (closest to the sea) are used during events and festivals. You will see more of them at Sukkot Celebrations (further ahead).

And now, let’s begin exploring Caesarea Maritima.

Time Trek Displays

If this is your first visit to Caesarea, I suggest starting at the Roman theater entry (#35). Near the southern entrance, you can find the “Caesarea Experience” display (#32). It is a 10 min movie that gives you a historical background. There is also a similar display at the port. They are called “Time Trek Displays” on the map, and the one in the harbor is marked #18.

The movie is available in Hebrew, English, Arabic, Spanish, Russian, German, and French. Here we are watching in Hebrew with subtitles in Russian.

After the movie ended, we headed to the most impressive building on-site – the theater.

The Roman Theater

The Roman Theater – the theater structure, an impressive and powerful building, stands at the southern edge of the national park. People from the highest and lowest walks of life came here to enjoy dramas and comedies. The classic model of Roman theaters influenced the shape of the theater: a semi-circle, in which were built blocks of cavea (seats) separated by vomitoria (entrances and exits). The arena – an area at the foot of the seats, was often used for the performances. The orchestra (stage area) which in Caesarea had a high and impressive scaenae frons (stage backdrop) and also underground rooms – dressing compartments for the actors.

The well-known term “bread and amusement” originates from the tradition established by Augustus Caesar. And Caesarea is named after him. Being a port city, which hosted sailors and seamen, the leaders of Caesarea needed to keep the visitors occupied, to provide them with places of entertainment, and to amuse them to encourage them to return to the city and enrich its coffers. The theater was one of those means, and it serves in this capacity to this day. In essence, its stage is used for performances by the most significant artists in the country.

The theater was built by Emperor Vespasian, using Roman arch-based technology. At a later stage, King Herod added a few more blocks of seats and enlarged them.

Note: unless stated otherwise, all quotes were taken from the official site.

By the way, Herod the Great was called “the greatest builder in Jewish history.” He is known for his colossal building projects throughout Judea. Including the expansion of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, Caesarea Maritima, Masada, and Herodium.

Many people confuse between a theater and an amphitheater. Do you know what the difference between the Roman Theater and Amphitheater is? For a full explanation, check out Is Caesarea Amphitheater really an amphitheater?

And this is how the theater might look back at the day.

Caesarea National Park in Central Israel

At the time of construction, there were about 4,000 places in the theater. Today the theater is active, and it is considered a status symbol. Only the top performers perform here. Probably because selling thus many tickets can be done only by most famous artists.

Note: the theater is marked as #34 on the site map.

The acoustics of the theater is excellent. No matter where you stand, even at the highest point, when somebody sings on the stage, you can hear them. Here we tested just that.

The Stone Garden

Behind the theater’s stage, you can find a collection of architectural artifacts discovered during the excavations. Here is, for example, a gable. Gable is a corner frieze.

As you can see, the signs all over the park are both in Hebrew and English.

You can also find other architectural elements, like the Doric capital and even Sarcophagus.

The wealth of Roman Caesarea is reflected through the wide range of stones. They were brought from all over the Mediterranean and Eastern coasts.

The Reef Palace

Behind the Roman Theater, closest to the waterline, you can find the Reef Palace (also known as The Coral Palace – #31).

The Reef Palace is also called The Promontory Palace, and it consists of two central units. The lower palace was the private wing, and the upper mansion housed the public side.

In the following photo, you can see the lower palace. It had a swimming pool, and in the eastern complex, a central hall and two small rooms (all richly decorated) were found. The complex had bathing and heating facilities. And in the North-Eastern corner, there were stairs to the upper level. Mikveh and a bathhouse were located nearby.

As you can see, not much is left of the palace. But here is a possible reconstruction.

Caesarea National Park in Central Israel

History Of The Reef Palace

The Reef Palace – when leaving the theater in the direction of the promenade, you pass through a large courtyard in the western part of which pillars are facing the sea.

That was the inner courtyard of the guest wing of Herod’s magnificent palace. The palace consisted of two stories for guests and residents. Another part of the mansion was built at the western end of the courtyard, on the marine reef – a peninsula protruding out to sea. Standing at the edge of the yard, looking westward, one can see some of the remains of the palace, parts of which are submerged in the sea, and one can imagine the glory and elegance of the place.

Who Built The Reef Palace?

Although Herod was never in Caesarea, some researchers attribute the palace to him, and they assume that it was one more of his beautiful buildings. Others argue that the mansion may even not have been built in Herod’s day, since it is too close to the large public buildings in the city (the theater and the Hippodrome), and Herod, who was naturally suspicious, would not have built a private palace in such proximity to public buildings. It is possible that governors who came to the city after the time of Herod’s reign lived in the mansion because they preferred the vibrant life in Caesarea over the monotony (in their opinion) of Jerusalem.

The palace fell into ruin over the years, and very little is left of it. On the reef, you can see a swimming pool remains that had been excavated in the Kurkar rock in the sea, and a layer of hydraulic plaster tells us that the pool contained freshwater. The pool was apparently in use in periods when aqueducts were bringing water to the city. The pool is one more proof of the insatiable hedonism of the aristocrats. A mosaic floor was also found alongside the pool, as well as a ritual bath (Mikveh) from the late Roman period.

Note: you can find additional information about the water supply at Taninim Stream Nature Reserve.

Pontius Pilate Inscription

Pontius Pilate was the fifth prefect of the Roman province of Judaea, serving under Emperor Tiberius from 26/27 to 36/37 AD. He was the judge on the trial and crucifixion of Jesus (Gospel of Matthew chapter 27).

During excavations of the theater, a dedication inscription was found. The replica is located in the palace, and the original is at Israel Museum in Jerusalem.

Pontius Pilate Inscription - Caesarea National Park in Central Israel
Pontius Pilate Inscription

This inscription says:

(Po)ntius Pilatus, the prefect of Judaea, (erected) a (building dedicated) to (the emperor) Tiberius.

The inscription content and the use of Latin language hint at the level of Romanization throughout the province, and in Caesarea, at the beginning of the first century AD.


From the palace, we continued to the Hippodrome (#28).

The Hippodrome was an ancient Grecian stadium for horse racing and chariot racing. The name is derived from the Greek words hippos (ἵππος; “horse”) and dromos (δρόμος; “course”). The term is used in the modern French language and some others, with the meaning of “horse racecourse”.

Hippodrome in Caesarea National Park
Hippodrome in Caesarea National Park

This edifice, whose location matches Josephus Flavius’s description, was built for the city’s inaugurations in 10/9 BC. The Hippodrome was the venue for the Actian Games instituted by King Herod in honor of the Roman emperor Agustus. The games were held every four years and included horse and chariot races, athletics, gladiator combats, and hunting.

And from the Hippodrome, we continued to the bathhouse.

Public Bathhouse

Public Bathhouse (#30) has two areas: northern and southern. The northern area was used for pre and post bathing procedures – for example, exercise, shaving, haircuts, and massages. And the southern area had cold and hot baths. Here is a scheme for the southern area.

This complex has a bright protective roof and can be easily spotted from a distance.

And our next stop on the way to the port is the Tax Archive.

Here you can see the Tax Archive with the Public Bathhouse roofed area in the back.

Tax Archive

Today we know that was a Tax Archive by one of three inscriptions found on site.

Caesarea National Park in Central Israel

That inscription identified this building as Byzantine government offices where clerks recorded tax revenues. And the other two inscriptions are quotations from the New Testament, parsing obedience to the authorities.

And now we will skip to the Crusader Gate at Caesarea Port.

Caesarea Port (Harbor)

The Crusader Gate

The Crusader gate – the north-eastern entrance into Caesarea is through a reconstructed monumental structure – the Crusader gate. This gate is part of an even more powerful system of fortifications built by the ruler Louis IX. The system included a moat and glacis, a high wall, and sophisticated indirect access gates (twists and turns), which prevented direct entry into the city and exposed intruders to potential injury from inside the city. Standing inside the gate and looking upward, one can see a cross-shaped stone at the center of the arch.

Note: the gate is marked #1 on the site map.

Nymphaeum – Roman Fountain

The nymphaeum (#2) was the public fountain that stood at the center of ancient Caesarea. It was situated at the intersection where the city’s main street meets Herodian port.
The nymphaeum had a decorative function, provided drinking water, and was also a place where residents and visitors could congregate.

And since we mentioned water, you probably noticed there is no spring or lake near the city. The water was reaching the city by aqueducts. At the Aqueduct Beach (see below), you can find remains of that system.

The Old City And The Port

When you enter The Crusader Gate, there are remains of the old city to your left. There is a short round route covering this hill. Here are several photos of the old town.

Remaining arches from an ancient street:

The width of the walls is quite impressive. Approximately two meters.

There are several viewpoints (#36) in the old city. Some of them towards the south, showing Caesarea Maritima remains. And other views are towards the port and the sea.

In the distance, you can see the Hedera power station.

In this view from the mount toward the sea, you can see the only remaining mosque, “The Bosnian mosque.” (#15)

Note: this area currently undergoes archeological works and reconstruction. Thus there might be limited access.

And after getting down, this is the view of the hill. We were lucky and had a full moon:

About The Port

At the port, you can find half a dozen restaurants, several jewelry shops and galleries, and an ice cream stand.

The Port – Caesarea began with the special port built by Herod. Until then, the coastal ports relied on natural marinas, but Herod built the first quay-based port of its kind in the Middle East.

The quays were submerged in the sea on wooden rafts, and a lighthouse and a breakwater were also built alongside them. Grain was traded in ships sailing along the east coast of the Mediterranean, which was known for its convenient currents. Vessels departing from Egypt to Rome needed a place for anchorage and rest for re-stocking and repairs, as well as a safe place in stormy weather. The Romans in Caesarea provided these ships with port services and taxed them, which increased their income. The investment in constructing the port was worthwhile, and the activity therein expanded. The port city became a window on distant cultures since goods from the entire Mediterranean basin entered and departed through it.

The port operated for some years but, due to a lack of engineering knowledge, the quays did not last, and, despite rehabilitation efforts, they collapsed towards the end of the Byzantine period, and the port ceased to function.

Roman Concrete And Underwater Construction

At the time of the port’s construction, it was an engineering wonder. The port was among the first ones that were built in the open sea. And to build it, Herod used the latest available innovation – the Roman concrete.

Vitruvius, writing around 25 BC in his Ten Books on Architecture, distinguished types of aggregate appropriate for the preparation of lime mortars. For structural mortars, he recommended pozzolana, the volcanic sand from the beds of Pozzuoli, which are brownish-yellow-gray in color in that area around Naples, and reddish-brown near Rome. Vitruvius specifies a ratio of 1 part lime to 3 parts pozzolana for cement used in buildings and a 1:2 ratio of lime to pozzolana for underwater work, essentially the same ratio mixed today for concrete used in marine locations.

By the middle of the first century, the principles of underwater construction in concrete were well known to Roman builders. The city of Caesarea was the earliest known example to have made use of underwater Roman concrete technology on such a large scale.

Events And Tours at Caesaria National Park

Over the years, we participated in different events at this national park. And in this section, I am going to tell you about several of them.

Light Show at Caesarea National Park

Lantern Tour At Caesarea

Occasionally, Israeli National Parks holds lantern tours at this national park. Of course, these are batteries powered lanterns, but kids love the experience anyway.

Lantern Tour At Caesarea
Lantern Tour At Caesarea

We started at the Caesarea port entrance. And no matter how many times I visit this site, I always learn something new. For example, when entering through those gates (the ones on the right in the photo above), you will notice that one of the corners is rounded. That is because Crusaders rode horses into the city. And gradually, horses shed part of the stone.

Then using the secret passage, we went from the port to Caesarea Maritima.

Lantern Tour At Caesarea

We had about five stops during this tour, and on each one, our guide covered different topics.

Caesarea National Park at night

We did not reach the Roman theater. We headed up to the bathhouses and turned back.

The tour lasted about an hour, which is less than what I had hoped for. Nonetheless, we learned new things, went through one of the secret passages, and overall it was a lovely experience.

Sukkot Celebrations at Caesaria National Park

Sukkot usually falls around October, and this means that it is not too hot outside. Comfortable weather, together with several vacation days, causes many people to look for outdoor activities.

Caesarea National Park belongs to Israel Nature and Parks Authority, and there are two main pluses to this park: it is relatively close to the center, and it is quite significant. Thus, many events take place here.

According to the official site, we were expected to see various performers, shows for children, the Roman market, and much more.

When we entered the park, we saw that one of the shows just started. So we went to see it, and this is what we saw:

Shavuot Celebrations at Caesarea National Park

Either they did not expect so many people, or they did not plan adequately. As you can see, when the actors were climbing up, we could see only their legs. It is good to have shade, but the tent should be higher and much longer.

Shavuot Celebrations at Caesarea National Park

I understood that the planning of the event was lacking (this is an annual event so they should have reasonable estimations of the number of people that are going to come) and thus we stopped watching the performers and went to take places in advance before the next show started.

Shavuot Celebrations at Caesarea National Park

When we entered the park, we received a timetable for Sukkot celebrations and a map telling where each show would be. The problem was that on-site, there were no signs at all. And if you look at the photo above, you will see drums and other musical instruments. And I thought we arrived at the drum’s performance. But after about 15 min when I saw them, I understood that I was wrong.

Instead, we came to the “guards performance.” They were teaching the children different claps, and overall, it was a pleasant 20 min show.

The “Roman market” consisted of several stands.

We found a spot on one of the walls and stayed there.

There was a warrior fight with an unexpected result, and the show was likable, but our viewing angle was not the best.

Sukkot Celebrations – Final Thoughts

If I had to sum up the Sukkot celebrations at Caesarea, I would say there were things that I did not like and others that I did. The organization lacked many aspects (problematic parking, the tent, the lack of signs, unclear map, sitting areas, small Roman market, and quite expensive – 25 NIS for filling a small bottle with sand of different colors). The performers and actors were very patient with kids, and overall, the shows were excellent (of course, aimed at children under ~10). And if I were visiting by myself, then I would pass. But, what matters is that when I asked my daughter whether she liked it, she said: “Yes!”.

One Of The Most Popular National Parks

In recent years, Caesarea National Park was among the top three of Israel’s most visited National Parks. And in 2019, it was in second place both for Israeli and tourists (for additional details, see Israel tourism statistics).

I guess there are several reasons for that. First of all, is the location. Caesarea is halfway between Tel Aviv-Yafo and Haifa. That makes it is close to significant population clusters. Secondly, it is by the sea, and the breeze makes the visit more pleasant. Thirdly, there is ample space for different events (we will return to this subject later). And last but not least, there are significant remains.

What is Caesarea Philippi?

I want to start with a common misconception. Caesarea and Caesarea Philippi are two different places. Philip was Herod’s son, and after Herod’s death, he inherited an area near Banias Springs. In 2 BCE, Philip founded his capital there and called it Caesarea Philippi. Today it is more commonly known as Banias Nature Reserve, and it is located at the Golan Heights. These are two different National Parks with 150 km separating them.

Herod the Great built this city at about 25-13 BCE. And he named it in honor of “Caesar.” And the remains of that old city is today’s Caesarea national park.

Accommodations in the area of Caesarea

The modern city of Caesarea is a suburb of the upper class. And here is a widget by where you can check prices and the availability of properties in this area.

How Much Time a Typical Visit Takes?

How big is this national park? It is pretty big. You can spend anywhere from an hour up to a half-day or even more (especially if there is an event). And a typical visit will be 2 – 4 hours.

Moreover, keep in mind there are free guided tours on Saturdays (for more info, visit the official site). The typical introductory tour lasts an hour. You can join one of those and additionally explore by yourself.

Note: I have visited Caesarea National Park many times, and the photos are from different visits. Thus, you will see that I took some images during the day and others in the evening.


Caesarea moved back and forth between periods of affluence and prosperity, and destruction and ruin. The city’s remains give evidence of days of pomp and glory as well as periods of regression and decline.

Persian Period

The city began life in the Persian period (4th century BCE) when a trading station was established on the Mediterranean seashore, containing a protective fort. This town was part of the line of settlements established by Tyre and Sidon along the coastline, down to Egypt. The name of this small town was “Straton” (in Hebrew – Migdal Sharshon), after the name of the person who founded it – the King of Sidon.

Roman and Byzantine Period

In the Roman period, Herod identified the potential of the place, and in 30 BCE, he commenced building a port city there. He named it Caesarea in honor of Augustus Caesar, who gave the territory to Herod as a gift. Previous port cities at that time were established in the vicinity of natural bays. Still, Herod began building an artificial port, one of the largest in the Middle East and the most sophisticated. The port contributed significantly to the city’s general stability.

Caesarea reached the peak of its prosperity in the Roman-Byzantine period. Its remains from that period show a flourishing city, containing a system for the supply of flowing water, planned streets, cultural and municipal public buildings (from temples to theaters), and more. In the Roman period, Caesarea was the capital of the Province of Judea, the residence of governors, and it also had a sizeable Jewish community. And in the Byzantine period, the city became a vast metropolis and enjoyed a vital status due to the Christian community living there.

In the Roman and Byzantine periods, Caesarea was a major port city and a critical crossroad. Trading ships anchored there for replenishment, rest, and repairs, the port was full of life, and the town was energized by it. The port was a significant source of income for the city’s coffers, and when it ceased operation, the city of Caesarea also underwent a considerable change.

If you are wondering where the water came from, then check out Taninim Stream Nature Reserve.

Muslim Period And Crusaders

In the early Muslim period, Halif Omar conquered it (640 CE), and his followers ruled it for about 500 years. During this period, the city lost its greatness. In 1101 the Crusaders conquered the city. The Crusader city was tiny compared with its dimensions in earlier periods, and the Crusaders built a smaller port on the ruins of the old port that suited the city they had established. However, in 1291 Crusader Caesarea was conquered by the Mameluke Sultan Al-Malik Al-Ashraf in a move known as “scorched earth” – the Mamelukes feared the return of the Crusaders, so they methodically destroyed the coastal cities and ports, and Caesarea was lost under the ruins. In the Ottoman period, the place was deserted, and only at the end of the 19th century, a small town was established by Muslims from Bosnia that survived until 1948.

And now we will answer some common questions.

What is the meaning of Caesarea?

Herod the Great built the city of Caesarea, and he named it in honor of “Caesar.” Today the remains of that old city can be seen in Caesarea National Park.

Is Caesarea open on Shabbat?

Caesarea National Park is open on Saturday. See the full opening hours above.

How much time a typical visit to Caesarea National Park takes?

You can spend anywhere from one hour to a half-day in Caesarea National Park. But most people will probably spend several hours.

Is there an Amphitheater in Caesarea?

No. There is a Roman Theater. You can find an explanation about the difference between a theater and an amphitheater above.

What is the difference between Caesarea and Caesarea Philippi?

Caesarea Philippi is part of Banias Nature Reserve, and it is located at the Golan Heights. These are two different National Parks with 150 km separating them.


If you love archeology, especially Roman remains, then Caesarea National Park, together with Beit Shean National Park, should be on your list! But keep in mind that during most of your visit you will be under the sun. Thus, do not forget water, sunscreen, and a hat. Also, before visiting, check the official site for tours. During many weekends there are free tours, and a tour will upgrade the experience.

Moreover, check out the Caesarea page for additional info about the city.

    1. Hi Brenda,

      I mentioned two museums in this post. “Caesarea Experience” Display is a small museum, and it is part of the National Park. Everything inside Caesarea National Park is included in ticket price. I have also written about the nearby Ralli Museum. Ralli Museum is free. There is plenty of parking near both attractions, and it is also free.

  1. In the part where you talk about the shows, it is written ” Shavuot falls in October”. Chavout (the weeks in Hebrew, falls exactly 50 days after Passover (the feast of the exit from Egypt) so Chavout is usually between late May and mid June.
