Exciting and incredibly rich Western Galilee coast tour to Caesarea, Haifa and Acre
The coast of the Mediterranean sea gives us the option to enjoy a lot of fresh air, unlike other crowded places with many people and noise. I will open for you a new Israel on my private Caesarea, Haifa and Acre tour with its cultural heritage from the times of the Roman Empire, the Templars, and the Ancient Greek period, and I also open to you the wonderful world of the youngest Baha'i religion.
Caesarea, Acre, and the northern capital of our country, Haifa, must include three main directions:
- Explore the Roman theatre, the ancient port, roman baths and underwater diving.
- Walking through the fortress and tunnels of the Hospitallers in the ancient city of Akko.
- Visiting the magical Bahai Gardens.
If you want to experience a private Caesarea, Haifa, and Acre tour, you should consider that it is most convenient to move around the region and narrow streets of cities with a tour guide in Israel on a car that has all the permission of the ministry of tourism and transportation. I will provide you with not only a live program but also the closest location to the parking facilities, which a regular car or a taxi cannot offer.
Caesarea national park
Just 40 minutes away from Tel Aviv we will arrive in Caesarea national park, in the ancient maps of northern Israel the city was called Straton tower or Caesarea Maritima. the city was renamed in honour of the Roman emperor, Caesar Augustus
Caesarea was handed to King Herods the great in 29 BCE and ever since the city began to change from a pagan city to a classic roman, the king constructed the main classic buildings such as the Roman amphitheatre for plays and singing, hippodrome for horse racing and gladiator fights, roman baths for relaxing and spa treatments, storerooms, markets, wide roads, temples to Rome and Augustus and on the other side of the port his famous palace.
Caesarea was the ultimate place to host the biggest sports events and gladiator fights in the middle east!
Today we will explore not only the main buildings from the Herodian period but also a very important discovery from the 60', the Pilate Stone, the only archaeological item that mentions the Roman prefect Pontius Pilate, by whose order Jesus was crucified!from here he went to Jerusalem to finish the trial.
People admiring a good piece of art are welcome to visit the Railey museum, this is the right place to enjoy Israeli and international art without driving to the Israeli museum in Jerusalem, for adventurers who look for interesting and unique things to do in Caesarea I offer an exciting 1-hour diving trip to look up for treasures from ancient times in the heart of the harbour of Caesarea.
There is a museum presenting a short movie about the history of the city and the great king Herods and also in the exhibition of different items which were found in Caesarea.
