The old city of Akko is a fun one to explore, you've got the ancient crusader fort, the city walls, and a great maze of narrow streets with markets and restaurants to try out.

Akko is another old ancient city in Israel, but there really is not much to see here. The shops were nothing special and the area was a bit seedy.

Beautiful old City nearby Haifa in Israel. We went into the old city and hall of the knights. Pitty that the market was closed due to Christmas evening. Easy to walk, very nice for kids as well.

condensed aroma of history in every corner, from ancient times of the history, you rarely find such a site, where every corner tells you an enchanting story, it is a real fantasy , the tiny alleys, the Bazaar, the port, dive into the magic.
