We are fascinated by the story of the knights and the Crusaders. The Knights Templar story, acted out here in Acre (Acco) is one of legend.

The old town of Akko is one of the oldest neighborhoods - it is a city that has been inhabited continuously for centuries. And every country that claimed it as home has left their mark in some way.

Really fun way to spend a few hours. See the archeological sites, walk the walls, and eat amazing food. The shuk is nice, and small enough that you won't get lost. *Warning... have ₪3 for the public toilets!

The town has been excvated and much of it resored. The massive fortifications and dwellings of the crusader knights was an increadible site. It is located by the beautiful waterfront of Akko and quite impressive.

Great humus, fish and seafood in local restaurants. Boat trips. Marine with old walls. Ice-cream and freshly squeezed juices. Good for an easy morning trip.

We did a day trip from Haifa, and it was a good choice to go to Akko or Acre. It is set in a scenic position with some great architecture. We wandered through the old town, the tunnels, the citadel, the market and along the shore. Well worth a visit and spending some time wandering to soak in the atmosphere.

How can so much history, culture and beauty fit in to one small fishing port town ? Akko shows you how. So deserving of its Unesco World Heritage status - simply beautiful !
