    A great view point of the city and a great experience for the kids are the boat cruises of the bay. Just go to the fishermen's harbour and take one of the boats there.

    The Port

    by jacobzoethout Written Mar 27, 2005

    It's nice to walk around in the port of Akko, watch the fishermen and the ships. From the port, the view over the city with its towers and minarets is very nice.

    Souqs of Akko

    by jacobzoethout Written Mar 7, 2005

    A real Arab soukh in Israel, not a tourist trap. The souqs are being visited both by jewish and Arabs. Being a port town, lots of fish can be found in the markets, next to all the usual things.

    The old city and its wall are the main attraction here, they are not as old as you might think, they build around the 18th. century.
    Take a walk around and on the walls, there is a lot to see.
