It is always a sound decision to start with a visit at the nearest Tourist Information Office, and this one is no exception.

These last years we learned to rely more and more on our smartphones and their apps like Maps, Here, Google Maps and many others.
But there is nothing like a person who you can ask and who will answer according to your preferences and center of interest and direct you accordingly.

We were there this last weekend and happened to pass by this information center, , in front of the Bazaar, just before the Old City Arab market
We went in of course.

I must point out that the attendant there was outstanding: she was smiling, polite and really nice.
More important she was quick and understood immediately what was best for us.
She of course gave us maps, drawing on it where we were, where to go, recommending sites.

She also offered combo tickets at attractive prices.
We got there all the explanations we needed and could optimize our visit.

Acre is not big,so walk to the Turkish Bazaar and start your visit at this Tourist office...

This is the place to go for great advice and information before you start your visit to Akko. The great staff can help you (in several languages) to orient yourself in the city and help you map out a great day of touring, eating, and fun. They have a short film, maps, brochures and lots of advice regarding where and when. Follow the signs to Tourist Information when you enter the old part of town on Weizmann st (there is a parking lot right there at 1 Weizmann where you can park for the day if you are coming by car). The signs kind of drop off but you can ask for help at any store or restaurant. You will see a lovely restored stone building with bright blue shutters. Inside is a gorgeous, light-filled space which also includes local artwork for sale and interesting informational exhibits. If you have transportation and a flexible schedule, they can help you extend your visit to the area to include other sites such as local inns, wineries, food or crafts workshops and beautiful parks and natural sites in the western Galilee. We just spent several days doing just that and there is a lot to do and see in the area! Enjoy your visit to historic Akko and the Galilee.

I am not one to spend much time in tourist information offices. However the this JNF Western Galilee Tourist Information Center is a true exception to the rule. First, the space itself is amazing and has been restored to perfection. Second, the people working there really know the area and have great tips on where to go, what to do, and how to spend time not only in Akko but the entire region. Third, the space is used for other things as well. When I was there recently I saw the tail end of an art exhibition featuring artists from the Western Galilee. There will also be a new exhibit opening in early 2019 featuring multicultural women artists from the Western Galilee. Though I was there with my family, I'm also in the Israel tourist industry and I can definitively say that this place is a must stop.

Prior to visiting Northern Israel, stop by JNF Western Galilee Tourist Information Center or go on website. The center introduces to many small unique local businesses to visit from winery, private cooking experiences, restaurants, art galleries, food and beauty product factories in the Western Galilee region.

Aside from this visitor center being very clean, well-maintained, and actually quite pretty, it was stocked with plenty of helpful brochures, maps, and other information about Akko.

If you are not part of a tour group and are trying to do things on your own, I recommend going here to get some valuable information about the sights, sites, and attractions in and around Akko.

This is a beautiful information center but it is so much more. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and there is more information than you could possibly process on things to do and see in what is a small area. From food (think ice cream and cheese), to wine, to cosmetics and tourist attractions, they can help you with it all.
