What To Expect

Driving north from Ashdod port to the shores of Caesarea, we arrive one of Israel’s most impressive ancient monuments. Back in Phoenician times a mere fisherman’s village, it was later conquered by Alexander the Great but only with the advent of King Herod was its potential realised and the village turned into a magnificent and prosperous port and city. Named after Augustus Caesar, you will have time to walk in the national park, tour the hippodrome and Roman amphitheater and gaze at the remains of a mosaic floor in the ruined palace. Wherever you turn, you are confronted with impressive structures including a synagogue, obelisk and bathhouse. We will then continue onto Jaffa, where we will wander in the narrow streets of the charming Artist’s Quarter, take in the beauty of the port and enjoy breathtaking Mediterranean views.Associated with some of the Bible’s most famed stories - notably Jonah and the Whale - Jaffa is not only steeped in history but also breathtakingly beautiful, as we will see when we stand at the top of the hill and admire the Mediterranean and the port below.
For the last part of our day, we journey on to Tel Aviv, where we will explore some of the Tel Aviv’s s most famous landmarks, including Rothschild Boulevard, famed for its Bauhaus style of architecture, the Hall of Independence, where David Ben Gurion proclaimed the establishment of the State of Israel and Rabin Square, where Israel’s Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated in 1995 and where now stands a memorial to him. At the day’s end, either remain in the city and enjoy a drink or even dinner at one of Tel Aviv’s many cafes and bars, or return with our guide to Ashdod.
