This is one of many many tunnels under the city. This one is nice and clean and accessible. Very short, but a cool thing to do. Just be warned; it dumps you out at a different part of the city from where you entered.

Absolutely no reason to visit this site. It's historically important but we only knew that from something we had learned at a different attraction. You pay and walk through a tunnel with no one to guide you and no information posted about the site. Worth skipping unless they update the "attraction". The walk back from where the tunnel ends to...

After the very cool Crusader Fortress, the Templars Tunnel was a big disappointment After a poorly-market path through a residential area (I felt like an Amazing Race contestant), the tunnel is much smaller without any signage in English, only Hebrew I did not understand the historical significance and wiished I had skipped it.

It's the escape tunnel that the Templars used to flee the city. It's nicely done and worth a visit although less of a trill than other places

Historically fascinating but unless you understand its significance it's a wasted few minutes. It is the remnants of the "secret" tunnel from the "Crusader Fortress" further north (well worth the visit - the major underground site of ancient Acre - you should see it first). Must bend down low to enter - not appropriate for seniors - neat for kids.

Although only couple of hundreds of years old in a city of 4,000 years of history, the Templars Tunnels area masterpiece that is well worthy of your time

I was super excited to see this as it involved the Knights Templar and was a secret passage! However, there is a significant lack of information about the tunnel, the audio changes depending on who has selected the language last and the staff unhelpful. Worth it though if included as part of the overall attraction price.

The Templars' Tunnel is an outstanding site in the heart of the old city. The sense of history and mystery as you walk through the dark and damp tunnels under the old town is just amazing as is the story behind it's construction. The carefully constructed walkways make for easy accessibility while the photos on the walls are really informative.... More

We went to visit ancient acre 2 families that include 5 children - ages 3-6 - suddenly you go down below the city, plunged back in time into a mysterious tunnel - dark, moist and wonderful! the children loved it (and the adults as well for that matter :-)
