So you toured Caesarea National Park. You had a great time so far but all of a sudden the kids became hungry. And you let’s be honest wouldn’t mind a break from touring. So as you know I am a private tour guide in Israel and one of my favorite places is Helena Restaurant in Caesarea’s ancient harbor. Usually, I stop there after I covered some of the things you can see in Caesarea National Park. I like to start with the Herodian Palace and the remains from the Roman Period like the Circus Maximus and the Herod’s Theatre. But then I take my guests we connect back to the car and enter Caesarea from the crusader gate. There you can find the ancient harbor and there you can find all the good places to eat.
