Caesarea Maritima (not to be confused with Caesarea Philippi) is located on the Mediterranean coast between Tel Aviv and Haifa in the Sharon Pain. It was originally built by Herod the Great around 25-13 BC and was the main harbour for import and export in Roman times. Caesarea boasts some of the best preserved remains of Roman construction in Israel, including an amphitheatre, an aqueduct, a hippodrome, Herod’s harbour and a stone depicting the name of Pontius Pilate.

The Promontory Palace at Caesarea is traditionally thought to be the place where Paul (Saul), was imprisoned as mentioned in Acts 23.

Visit Caesarea Maritima – definitely a place to include on your tour of the Holy Land. See the history of the Bible come to life and get an insight into the power and riches that King Herod had at his disposal in the time of Jesus.

Take a step back in time.

positive min - Visit Caesarea Maritima - Holy Land Tours  We had an amazing day tour. We accomplished quite a bit in one day - a boat tour on the Sea of Galilee and visits of Capernaum, Tabgha, Mount of Olives, Kibbutz Ginosar, Jericho, Nazareth, and Cana. In addition, we were dropped off at Ben Gurion Int'l Airport after the tour. Yaron, our guide, is very knowledgeable, witty, and accomodating. We highly recommend Elbow and Yaron.

positive min - Visit Caesarea Maritima - Holy Land Tours  We had an amazing tour of Jerusalem with Yaron. He is a very knowledgeable man and easily connects with people. He went out of his way to make sure we can have the most of our time in Jerusalem. He made our Jerusalem experience a very beautiful and memorable one. I wish we did our whole Israel tour with him. We highly recommend this tour.
