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.

Our walk through the old town of Akko was most enjoyable and gave us a taste of the Old City, the market place and the Templar tunnels.

The old town of Akko (Acre) is one of the most popular tourist attractions of Israel, mainly thanks to the impressive work of conservation and cultivation. The old city, the alleys, the colorful market, the sea and the harbour, the mosques, and of course, the Knights Halls, the Crusader Fortress, the Templars Tunnel - well preserved and maintained.

Fantastic walk on the city walls. It was my first contact with Palestina and I found it extremely interesting for the remains of the past and also for the present situation.

Our tour of Israel and Jordan made a stop in Acre. We had not been familiar with the city before but we were very impressed with the historical significance of the area. There are several interesting areas to visit and we thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent there.
