Things to do
A fortified coastal city on the sunny Mediterranean, Akko - or as it is known internationally, Acre - has tons to offer in terms of tourist sites. With an extraordinarily rich history, the Old City of Acre is a magnet for tourists and locals alike.
A city wrought by conquests over the many long years, Acre's appearance is a result of numerous cultures and religions, each leaving behind an architectural footprint. Such historical significance earned the Old City of Acre a place on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list.
The Acre Guest House can be found just outside the main entrance to the walled Old City. The Old City can be casually explored during the course of one day - however two days might be needed to see everything! The great Hospitaller Fortress, with its great Knight's Hall, dominates a large segment close to the city entrance. Exploration of the numerous chambers, halls and tunnels can be aided via audio devices available in a number of languages.
The Turkish bazaar ("shuk” in Hebrew or "souk" in Arabic) is a popular place for purchases, dining or just plain window-shopping. Nestled within the bazaar is a Turkish bath, an ancient synagogues and innumerable narrow alleys filled with the rustic charm of the Old City.
With a large seawall shielding the city from the sea, Acre's marina is located in the quiet area of the bay. For a very nominal fee, visitors can hop on one of the colorful tour boats and see the ancient city from a totally different perspective. For those looking for thrills, joining the local Arab kids as they jump off the seawalls and into the rocky shoals below - from a distance of about 13 metres - can be quite rewarding.
Outside of the Old City are the Bahai Gardens of Acre and the ornate Tunisian Synagogue, renowned for its mosaics, nearly a lost art in today's world. Outside Acre, but still relatively close, is the Ghetto Fighters' Museum - the first Holocaust museum in the world.
