    Great catch! We spent a day in Caesarea and had such a great time. Walking around ruins from Herod’s Castle by the Sea was spectacular. It was a quiet day and we had the place almost to ourselves. We also visited the aqueducts down the shore (drove from place to place). The aqueducts were super cool and we got to get up close to that ancient water delivery system. From a historical standpoint, it’s just fascinating. And architecturally, it’s super cool!

    If you’re even close to Tel Aviv, it’s a MUST see!

      Hi Sheila,
      Thanks for dropping by.
      It is a fascinating place indeed. I’ll have to go back and see the aqueducts; I did not get a chance to do so.

      Kerwin.
