A World Heritage Site, Akko Old Town pulsates with centuries of history, opening up a window into the period of the Ottoman Empire and the Crusaders. An ancient town nestled around one of few natural harbors in Israel, the settlement has existed in some form for over 4,000 years, making it one go the oldest cities in the world. Discover the ancient mosques, 18th-century city walls, and an Ottoman citadel, built on the fortifications of a Knight Hospitaller underground complex. By the turquoise waters of the Haifa Bay, soak up some local history before stopping for a drink at one of the waterside cafes.

  • We stopped here on a tour for lunch. The tour people had us eat at a place they had connections with and then go to a shop where we would get a “discount.” I know that’s more about the tour company but it left a bad taste in my mouth. It was a busy city. It was the day that Ramadan ended. So people seemed very happy to be out eating. When I come back to install, I’m not site I works come back here. It wasn’t bad. Just not spectacular.
  • one of the most beautiful and mysterious cities in the world. touring the city unfolds a 5000 years of history. it is also a city known for it uprising culinary scene with its varied restaurants. a city to spend couple of days in.
