Akko (alias Acre) goes all the way back to the Phoenician days, however it claim to glory today is attributed to the Crusader remains, the notorious Templars, and the Ottoman Empire.
Walking through the old city is like going back in time, the old market, the old cobble stones and probably some of the vendors are the same folk from the year 1100.
Watching the Mediterranean sea unceasingly crash into the walls is soothing, looking at the local fisherman is calming. My reason for going back again and again? the local restaurants, where the Middle-eastern food is 'to die for.
Kids would love going around and looking at the old city, history buffs would love the Templars last stand, and if you are a Francophile, you can always stand on top of the hill which Napoleon parked, and see what he saw, just before he left Israel and never returned.
