Informative little adventure. The fortress it's self is beautiful, lots of good historical information posted around the structure. The tunnel is very neat.

It’s a big part of why you come to Akko! Layer upon layer of history beautifully preserved. The automatically advancing audio tour is a little sensitive though.

If you are interested in the history of the area and specifically in the Templar era this is a must see. Part of the fortress has only been found in the 1990s, and everything is well preserved. Best to do it with a guided tour

Built after the conquest of Acre by the Hospitaller and held until the subsequent fall to the Mamluks, This is a large and imposing building, but that's really all it is. There isn't actually that much to see. The overall structure of the fort is...More

The old castle has been renovated beautifully with many instructive tablets on how this world functions. If one considers how many people killed and were killed in brutal ways, one should be modest about mankind.

This is worth a visit, gorgeous architecture, well maintained and impressive. There were also some interesting art exhibits being shown there, in addition to the historical exhibit of the site itself, and we enjoyed both. If you plan on visiting several places in the city,...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
