What a unique little ancient city to explore! It has a ton of character and history. We enjoyed 1 day going through the city, but I wish we had one more day.

We have four days in Acre staying right on the coast. Marvellous atmosphere and ambience. Lots of good eateries, and walking around the old walls. Enjoy the great sunsets.
