Well presented unearthed fortress from Crusader period. Many parts of the fortress have been unearthed, repaired, and are accessible. Very interesting tour and location.

Incredibly unearthed Medieval fortress. Give yourselves a lot of time here. There isn’t so much to see and experience - I think you need at least two hours.

Very impressive. They are rebuilding a lot of excavated areas. The walk through the fortress, halls and tunnels is a fantastic experience of walking down history. Having a food guide or doing through a tour would help.

If in Acre, do the Crusader Fortress, with the Audiobook, but don't bother with the package that includes the Hammam, the wall treasures and the Templer tunnel. You can skip these three, they are a total waste of time. Better use your time for some...More

Wandering through the Fortress was so informative. The 3-D Virtual mini movie experience of the City in the Crusader era was incredible to watch. Great for kids with a fascination in knights and swords.

This is a very interesting place to visit! You'll be walking around with audioguide and through some sort of wifi connection, the guide will start talking and you don't have to do anything. If you are in a group, you may experience that the guide...More

One ticket is all you need. Follow arrows on the floor. You should allow two hours, but it could also get to be twice the time if you really get into it.

Strongly suggest a carrier if you plan on touring the Templar tunnels and walking the fortress walls. There are numerous steps and uneven walkways, some from cobblestone so pushing a stroller would be problematic. Enjoy

The prior two answers are sound. The cheapest option is the train; taking an express bus /shared ride to Tel Aviv and then catching the train to Acre is probably fastest/cheapest without a rental car. (We took a shuttle to... More
