Next visit ANU – Museum of the Jewish People is more than a museum. This unique global institution tells the ongoing and extraordinary story of the Jewish People.


Driving north to Caesarea on Israel’s central Mediterranean coast. Caesarea built by King Herod the Great in honor of Augustus Caesar...and was where the first Jewish revolt against the Roman Empire broke out. We will be able to “talk” to some of the personalities connected with Caesarea, sit in the theatre, walk the floor of the great Hippodrome where chariot races were held and get our feet wet in the Mediterranean Sea Caesarea. The city traded hands between Muslims and Crusaders several times; much of what remains dates from the Crusader era.
