A Taste of AJU’s Global Jewish Life Tours: Caesarea
Thu February 16 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm PST
Built two thousand years ago by Rome’s Judean Governor Herod the Great, Caesarea was one of the largest and most magnificent ports in the Mediterranean during the Roman period. Giant engineered piers designed by Herod stretched out into the sea to accommodate dozens of ships. During the Roman period, Caesarea contained a hippodrome, aqueduct and theater as well as palaces fit for a king. Eventually the Great Jewish Revolt broke out against the Romans and a subsequent second Jewish Revolt led to the execution of the Jewish leadership in the city. A thousand years later the Crusaders arrived and built a giant fortress, and then came the Ottomans, who turned it into a seaside town. Join tour guide Gadi Ben-Dov and explore the Roman theatre, Crusader fortress, and the Ottoman harbor as you take a step back in time to old Caesarea.
