A stratigic port on the northen shore of Israel, Akko was continously inhabited since the Canaanite periods.

In part of the Crusaders period (1192-1291) Akko was the capital of the Crusaders, and at Akko Napoleon lost a crucial battle to the Ottomans.

Today most of the old city is Muslim, and its port is used only for local fishing, and tourism. Its main attractions are the knights halls; the Templars Tunnel; the local market; and the port.
