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.

Here you'll find the Ralli Museum and the famed Roman aqueduct.
