OUTSIDE OF JERUSALEM: Acre-Acco

OUTSIDE OF JERUSALEM:
Acre-Acco – Underground Crusader City and a UNESCO World Heritage Site

Over much of its long history, the coastal city of Acco served as one of the key ports of the land of Israel. For thousands of years Acco was besieged and conquered by a series of invaders, yet at times its strong fortifications kept it from defeat. Even Napoleon Bonaparte was unable to conquer the city. Yet after trying for decades, the Crusaders finally took Acco in 1104, and it became thriving city of great importance. Indeed, it was declared the capital of the Crusader kingdom in the Holy Land.

Much of the Crusader town has been discovered under present day Acco, and the remains are almost intact! Don’t miss this unparalleled picture of the Crusader capital.

My husband, nine year old daughter and I have just returned from another fabulous journey to Israel, with Shmuel and Aviva, for the second year in a row, as our tour guide and travel planner! This .We had a perfectly planned itinerary, well suited to the needs and interests of the three of us. Traveling around Israel with Shmuel as our guide is really the ideal way to tour. He is energetic, enthusiastic and he knows every inch of the country and therefore navigates the country with complete ease. He is extremely knowledgeable about all the sites, the history, the geography, the culture, etc. Shmuel has become a part of our family! We can’t wait to see you again!
