Akko

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 popluated with Arab Muslims, and its port is used only for local fishing, and tourism.

.

Akko’s main attractions are Hospitallers Citadel / “The Knights Halls” ; Al-Jazzar Mosque ; the local Bazaar; and the Templars Tunnel . In the local port one can go for a Akko Boat ride  in a regular or speed boat.

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