Most interesting if somewhat shabby area

Great fun wandering around the old streets and watching life go on round about you as you linger for a coffee or lunch

Nice to walk around, the town of Akko is like many other Israeli towns. The proximity to the sea is its major draw card, and some bustling markets are interesting but not a stand out compared to others.

A walk through the Old Town of Akko still gives a good impression of how this important historic place was at the time of the templars. It is well worth while a visit.

We decided to spend time in the old city and it is lovely. We went with our grandchildren who loved visiting the market, the Turkish Bazar, walking along the walls of the city and enjoying a wonderful warm day in March. Yona s.

One of the must places to visit in Israel. We were there with our 2 teenagers and 4 years old. So much to see, so much to learn. It is better though if you can go there with a guide.

visited only briefly for sunset but it was a beautiful experience walking the old streets, especially with the sounds of the waves crashing behind the walls. I definitely recommend spending at least 24 hours here and experiencing it fully

Akko is on the sea. The walls of old houses are hand-painted and the doors are open, very white walls and blue windows like in Greece. At every step we remained open-mouthed and our faces touched the clothes hanging outside and our noses inhaled the scent of the washing. Outside the old town there are two large stones, which look...

A new, clean, useful place to begin your visit to the Western Galilee. Lots of maps, info sheets, even products. They're happy to book hotels, suggest restaurants, even plot routes. Much more up to date than any tour book. Your visit helps these small businesses in the Western Galilee and your are guaranteed to find something you would have overlooked.... More

We did an organized trip with a local tour guide that took us up the fort wall of the old city. Great history behind the wall and buildings, at some stage went down into the old city streets. The place is beautiful and safe to visit. Would recommend to find a local guide, makes it more whole, and not just... More

Although we enjoyed walking astound the old town of Akko (Acre), it was not a spectacular sight in itself. The warren of little streets are strewn with rubbish, and the sea wall is so high that you cannot actually see the water except through some little holes that once held a wooden walk (five feet up: from that, city defenders...
