The next spectacular stop was a Roman city built by Herod, Caesarea [by the Sea]. It was built completely of white marble and one can still find huge chunks of marble on the shore. The magnificent Roman theater has been reconstructed and is in use for summer concerts and entertainment. Herod chose Mediterranean Sea as a natural backdrop for his theater.
Understanding Israel requires a basic knowledge of the Jewish history. The Diaspora Museum in Tel Aviv details the past and ongoing story of the Jewish people. Due to time constraints we visited this museum late in our tour. However, I would suggest making the museum one of your first stops in order to gain perspective and understanding for the historical sites you will visit.
