(4.4/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
A World Heritage Site, Akko Old Town pulsates with centuries of history, opening up a window into the period of the Ottoman Empire and the Crusaders. An ancient town nestled around one of few natural harbors in Israel, the settlement has existed in some form for over 4,000 years, making it one go the oldest cities in the world. Discover the ancient mosques, 18th-century city walls, and an Ottoman citadel, built on the fortifications of a Knight Hospitaller underground complex. By the turquoise waters of the Haifa Bay, soak up some local history before stopping for a drink at one of the waterside cafes. Plan your visit to Akko Old Town and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Acre family vacation planner.

  • עכו עברה קפיצת דרך משמעותית בכל הקשור לרמת התיור. ביקרנו בעיר העתיקה והתרשמנו לטובה מרמת הפיתוח הגבוהה. שילוט ברור, אתרים מתוחזקים היטב, נקי מאוד ואוירה מצויינת . מומלץ מאוד.
