Everyone in Akko will tell you that you should walk throught the Templar tunnel, take the tour of the Knights' Dining Hall in the old Acre Castle, and look through the parapets of the fortress' sea walls to see the waves crashing up against the rocks. For something more unusual, check out the old castle moat, and you will see basketball courts with double-function soccer/basketball goals/poles. There are three full courts and one half court, so there is always room to play inside the moat of the Crusader castle of Acre. It is a joy to play or to see children playing peaceful games where King Richard I ("The Lion Hearted") grabbed power in 1104, where the Crusader kingdom fell to the Mamluks in 1291, and where Napoleon's first series of campaigns failed in 1799 when he was unable to take this city from the Ottoman Empire.
