    The place is great to visit thus in summer sunny days, a big umbrella and water are a must. The area is charged with history and the atmosphere is great !  more »

    Visiting the Citadel is definitely worth the time while in Akko. It's a part of history that makes Akko an important seaport during the Crusades. Very family friendly  more »

    After lunch, it's worth the visit. A lot of history and audio in Portuguese. In the summer it's very hot. Nice people. Attention to closing time

    Fascinating. Well restored and maintained with extensive signage displaying the history. The audio guide really adds to the experience. You have a choice of several combo tickets. I chose one that provided entrance to the main citadel, the Templars' Tunnel, the Okashi Museum and the Treasures in the Wall museum. To be honest, this was a waste of money - the other venues are not particularly close by, and with the possible exception of the Tunnel, they were not worth the effort of visiting.
