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.
