The ancient city of Caesarea, which is located halfway between Haifa and Tel Aviv, was founded in 90 B.C.E. and has a wealth of history and archaeological ruins, most notably those that date from the Roman Empire. The impressive Roman aqueduct, hippodrome and theater were built by Herod the Great around 25 to 13 B.C.E., and they continue to leave visitors in awe 2,000 years later. Other notable ruins include remnants of the walls of a fortress built by an expedition of crusaders that included King Louis IX of France.
