Transport yourself to the age of the Crusades by walking the impressive walls of this ancient town, explore the historic fortress, or find yourself lost in the narrow cobblestone streets and you will feel like you are in the 11th or 12th century. The old town certainly rates its World Heritage Site moniker--definitely worth your time.

I stayed in the old town Acre/Akko for three days and loved wandering the streets. The fish was great down by the harbor/city walls, and the architecture fascinating. Call ahead to view the Greek Orthodox church in the old city, as the Greek priest would not let me in when I just showed up. On the other hand, the Catholic... More

We spent an enjoyable few hours walking round the Old Town of Akko. There is lots to see, and many narrow streets to walk through. I'd recommend getting there early, as it gets very busy, especially in the market, later in the day. There are plenty of things to see as you go around. Overall, well worth the time to... More

We spent a few evenings walking through the old town. It was picturesque and felt safe. We toured the Crusader Citadel which was fantastic, lots of dining options. Can be quite busy with tour buses and bustles with people.

Already proclaimed as a World Heritage site, the Old Town is a memorial to antiquity. It is a proud representation of Akko when it was an important trading post and the setting of numerous historical events, with the Crusaders episodes as one of the highlighted incidents. Starting with the fortress, one can climb up to the ramparts of the ancient... More

Lots to see in this little ancient walled town. Winding streets, beautiful El Jazzar Mosque, views of Mediterranean from some of the walls, Crusader's fortress/ citadel (Knights Hall), Prisoners Museum, souk (outdoor market), a small museum- seems to be a cultural mix. Could be cleaner, but interesting regardless

The walls are still standing as are some old buildings. Lovely port views. Cobblestone streets. Places to eat and the old market.

Without a GPS mapping app on my phone I would have been totally lost walking the narrow streets. Some are picturesque and some of the Souks are interesting, but I would only set aside an hour of your time to wander around.
