Throughout history, many empires have tried to conquer Israel due to its strategic location. We will meet Herod the Great and his magnificent port city of Caesarea, capital of Judea under the Romans. See the excavations of the crusader city and the Roman port, aqueduct and the ancient theater. We continue our drive South along the shore all to way to Jaffa–with its history dating back to early antiquity. We will end the day in Sarona Market, a commercial area in a former 19th Century German colony, which today is a lively gastronomic hotspot.
