On the Mediterranean shore between Tel Aviv and Haifa, this upscale suburb offers a mix of ancient archeology and modern leisure culture.
Caesarea is one of the most significant and impressive cities in Israel, says Vered Cohen, director of Educational Content for the Caesarea Development Company, the private entity that governs this unusual municipality between Haifa and Tel Aviv, known for its 18-hole golf course and luxurious gardens. “It’s a beautiful place that offers a rare combination of history and antiquities, lifestyle and seashore.”
If you visit, don’t miss “Time Trek,” a multimedia exhibit that puts perspective on Caesarea’s timeline, which began more than two millennia ago. And if you time it right, you can take advantage of Caesarea’s many live cultural events and performances including yearly jazz and opera festivals.
