The Phoenicians discovered it, and the Romans fell in love with it: Caesarea is most famous for its intriguing Roman, Byzantine, and Crusader ruins, but also offers a stroll through artists’ galleries, an underwater archaeological park, and culinary delights. Modern-day Caesarea is a popular tourist center that juxtaposes a vibrant past and bustling present. Near the archaeological site is the well-to-do community of Caesarea, a group of homes on the sea. Here you'll find the Ralli Museum and the famed Roman aqueduct.
