Cesarea is where we went after Haifa (Banyas was the next morning).
If you like ruins, Cesarea is the place for you. All the way from the Persian period (568-332 BCE) to the Ottoman Period (1561-1917 CE). I think my photographs are mostly from the Crusader & Roman Periods.
Roman (exterior court for a fancy house) Period. Mediterranean Sea in the distance (not a bad view, huh?).
Mosaic floor in the fancy Roman House.
Marble "quilt block" floor in the outside court of the fancy house.
Irish Chain mosaic floor.
King Herod's Hippodrome.
Also in Cesarea that we missed was an Ampitheater & a Byzantine wall (2 name a few specific things - we only had about 2.5 hours to see a site that could take a day.)
The following all come from the Bird Mosaic Mansion. I was impressed with how life like the birds are... You can tell that a peacock is a peacock.
I still marvel over the fact that I would have missed this if we did not have battery problems.
Our final sight for the day were Roman Aquaducts:
We also only got to see the aquaduct because of the battery problem. They had spotlights, but they never lit while we were sitting in the car...
