The citadel is a worthwhile visit. It is a complex structure that is in very good condition. It gives a real feeling of what it was like to be there 1000 years ago. Audio guides are provided free of charge but you need to purchase...More

Superb audio provided and the self guided tour was most interesting with so much to see and learn about. A must see for anyone visiting Akko.

We were deeply impressed to see this well conserved historic monument in the center of Akko. A worthwhile place to visit.

Amazing place to visit. Beautiful structure with arches and mosaics. Crusaders hall is the one everyone likes the most. Get a guide to walk you through- it is so much better

The website for the castle has the prices. I can't post the website name here (TripAdvisor rules) but search for Akko crusader museum and follow the links. The Okashi museum is essentially an art gallery - well worth it and... More

No. The crusader fortress is in Acre, not Tiberias. Russian: Нет. Крепость темплиеров находится в Акко, а не в Тверии.
