Caesarea National Park is a park where visitors can see the ruins of a city that was built by King Herod. The park is located between Tel Aviv and Haifa, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.

When purchasing tickets, visitors can request a small information pamphlet which gives some history about the site, and also includes a small map. The map lists the different "sites" you can visit during your trip. Each site is a different set of ruins. (For example, site number 4 is a "Network of Streets", and site number 5 is the "Bathhouse Complex"). The pamphlet is available in a variety of languages, including English.

Most of the ancient city has a nice view of the Mediterranean Sea. It is quite nice to walk along the beach there. Some of the sites I found most interesting were the Herodian Theatre, the Circus ("Hippodrome"), and the Bathhouse. They were the only structures that I could tell what they were used for. In fact, the theatre is still used today! (As you can see from the plastic seats in the bottom row).

There is a visitors area that had a couple stores and vendors selling products (and ice cream). Otherwise, the historical site itself is fairly undeveloped. There are very few informational displays, although there is the pamphlet for visitors that gives them a bit of history about the area.


Adults pay 23 NIS per person for just the park entrance, or 40 NIS to additionally see the interactive shows exhibit. Children pay 12 NIS to just walk around the park, or 33 NIS to also see the interactive shows.

Cameras and video cameras are permitted.

Estimated Visiting Time

If you're just planning on walking around the park, 1-2 hours is sufficient. If you plan to see the interactive shows, you will probably want a little bit more time.
