Meals not included
Leave Haifa port and drive along the coast to Caesarea—the city that Herod the Great dedicated to Caesar Augustus more than 2,000 years ago. The new Visitor Center here offers a multimedia presentation and a chance to meet virtual figures from the past and ask them questions after hearing their stories. A tour of the archaeological excavations includes Herod’s palace, the theater, the hippodrome, the deep harbor, the Byzantine market, streets, baths and the Crusaders’ fortifications and moat. Before leaving Caesarea, see the impressive aqueduct, which supplied plentiful water to ancient Caesarea Maritima. Drive back to Haifa and enjoy a panoramic view of Haifa Bay and the magnificent Baha’i Hanging Gardens from Mt Carmel before returning to your ship.
Modest attire is required; knees, shoulders and midriffs must be covered.
