Akko. Walk through the passages of the old town


Akko is one of the oldest cities in the world. In our century, it will be almost 35 thousand years old. The Phoenicians founded it, and many cultures and empires left their mark on it, from the Mesopotamian rulers of the Middle East to the Greeks and Romans. However, the most significant period in the history of the city is the kingdom of the Crusaders. Medieval knights left behind delightful buildings, which the Arab rulers of Akko buried underground with enviable obstinacy and constancy. This underground city will appear to our eyes, and after getting to know the halls of the crusaders, we will take a walk in Arab Akko - full of oriental quirks and contradictions and finish the walk with a portion hummus. Don't forget to buy tickets to the Crusader Halls complex, including the Turkish Baths and the Templar Tunnel.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?

Citadel Garden, Akko

As if descended to earth from the tales of a thousand and one nights, this beautiful garden looks like that for a reason. Once upon a time, it was part of the palace of the Arab ruler of the city. Today, a tourist center tells about the city's history, and the ticket office offers the entrance to the complex of knightly halls.
