Akko Old Town, Acre

4.4
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.

  • Important city for Israel and the Christianity religion, yet not very impressive if you have been to the old town in Jerusalem and Jaffa in Tel Aviv. Need at least one whole afternoon if you want to f...  more »
  • We took a ticket for the 5 viewings at the visitor centum. The history of the Knights Templar, the corridors, under the city Walk, the museums and the old bathhouse. 1 Museum with modern art could not charm me. Much has been explained about history. Acco is an ancient fascinating city. The old stadAcco is a place to fall in love with and stay. It's my second visit to Acco and every time you discover new things. What worries me is the many litter and everywhere it is.

  • Alleys where to get lost (a way of saying, because it is all perfectly marked) and see bazaars, hammams, cafes, children running around, accompanied by music that comes out of all corners of the city
