What people are saying:

Ancient City of Acre English is Akko or Acre, Google translates as Akri, but most translations are Akko. The ancient city of Acre has towering earth walls and deep trenches. Both the church bell tower and the underground passage attract tourists from all over the world. It was included in the World Cultural Heritage List in 2001. Akha is located 23 kilometers north of Haifa. It has been the main port in Palestine from ancient times to the 19th century. After the development of Haifa, it gradually replaced its position. The transportation from Haifa to Acre is very convenient. It takes about half an hour to get there by train. Then use Google app to search for local transportation. There are different routes of buses to reach. It is very convenient if you have a bus card. Pay attention to the different closing times of various attractions in the ancient city, so try not to arrive too late. Akha has a long and complex history. The ancient city once contained the main prison in Palestine. In 1948, Jews easily controlled this place and expelled about three-quarters of the Arabs from Akha. Now Akha is also a mixed religion. About 70% of the residents of the city are Jewish and 30% of the residents are Arabs, but the residents living in the ancient city of Acre are basically Arabs. After arriving at the visitor center, visitors can choose different attractions to buy tickets, and there are also different options for package tickets. Personally, the must-visit attractions are the city wall, the knight's hall and the temple tunnel. Some architects once said that the ancient city of Akha has palace-style mansions, ordinary residential houses, and many public buildings and small workshops. They look crowded together, but they all have detailed planning. Their style and height are unified. Yes, the criss-crossing of alleys has been carefully designed, so you can only feel the excitement of the ancient city of Acre only if your parents and children are here.
