The sites of Caesarea and Nazareth combine two of the most significant sites in northern Israel, and especially for Christian History. Nazareth is where Christianity began, and Caesarea is where it became universal. Strap your self to the seat-belt and let’s embark on a great private guided tour experience of these two sites!
Explore the beauties of Roman Caesarea
Founded some 2,000 years ago as a Roman Metropolis, Caesarea is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Israel. Its rich finds include impressive remains of its ancient Port(and its archaeological Display), a Nymphaeum, a new museum, a Crusaders Gate, the Byzantine Praetorium, a Bathouse, a unique Hippo-Stadium, a Latrine, an Herodian Palace (including possible site of Paul’s Prison), and well consarvated ancient Theatre.
Discover the Legacy of Nazareth
On the way out of Caesarea, we could also stop for a view of the aqueduct, and then heaad to Nazareth. After a possible lunch break we will first visit the Catholic Church of Annunciation (Luke 1), and its nearby Saint Joseph Church. Strolling through the Market we visit the Synagogue church (Luke 4), and up to “Mary’s Well“, and Saint Gabriel church.
We could end the day with a panoramic view of the Jezreel valley from Mount Precipice. Among others, the Biblical site of Megiddo, is visible from Here. Time Permitting, we could also visit the this significant site. By Christian tradition this is Armageddon, the site of the final battle at the end of times (Revelation 16:16).
