the Fortress has been cleaned and prepared to be visited after 800 years that it was impossible to see and understand what the Hospitalers built in the 11th Century, but,still we can criticize a few things of how the fortress or the visit is done....More
It's a very big citadel beneath the streets of the walled city.
There's a very interesting and informative multi-lingual audio tour with many stops around the citadel (the earphones are not too comfortable, but other than that...), even the kids loved it.
There are many...More
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
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.

By public transportation:
You can get to Acre either by bus or by train. If you choose the bus option, you take a bus to Haifa (960 egged, about 2 hour ride) and then a bus to Acre (bus 271 by nativ express company ~30 min). If you choose the train option, you can take the train from Jerusalem (Scenic but very slow), switch trains in Tel Aviv and take a train to Acre. (This will take you about 3.5 hours total). Quicker way is to take a bus to Tel Aviv (480 egged, 1 hour) and take train from there to Acre (Takes about 1.5 hours).
All in all, possible as a day trip with early start, but you will spent at least 5 hours of the day in transit.
(I assume little to moderate traffic with the bus times estimates.)
If you happen to rent a car, the one way will take about 2-2.5 hours.
There might be tours to Acre, but I am no expert on them, and can not give an educated suggestion.
