- DejelajaChicago, Illinois36 contributionsA Real Gateway to the Western Galilee and the North of Israel!This is a beautiful space, made even more beautiful in the recent renovations. But its not just about the space. The information provided is fantastic and really geared toward mapping out an amazing stay in the Western Galilee, which not enough people do! The staff is friendly, and the center and its staff have become truly a part of the community in Old Akko!Written February 8, 2022
- Dan MTel Aviv, Israel15,458 contributionsThe right place to start your visit in AcreOf course there are the mobile apps like Here, Maps, Google Maps and many others. But there is nothing like a person who can ask you what your preferences are, what you want to see and direct you accordingly. We were there this last weekend and happened to pass by this information center, just near the Bazaar and before the Old City Arab market. We went in of course. The attendant there was outstanding: she was polite, smiling, 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 and also offering combo attraction tickets at attractive prices. We got all the explanations we needed and could optimize our visit. Since Acre is not big, I warmly recommend you start your visit at this Tourist office..Traveled as a coupleWritten September 24, 2018
