Akko

Tour to AkkoA 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.

Akko walls

Today most of the old city is popluated with Arab Muslims, and its port is used only for local fishing, and tourism.

Near the old city the Akko Mosaics synagogue ; and the Tomb of Baha’u’llah (Bahji)  are also worth a visit.





Acre, Israel

The city occupies an important location, sitting in a natural harbour at the extremity of Haifa Bay on the coast of the Mediterranean’s Levantine Sea. Aside from coastal trading, it was also an important waypoint on the region’s coastal road and the road cutting inland along the Jezreel Valley.
