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.

Testimonials
Our two-week trip to Israel was one of the best experiences of our lives. Shmuel knows the country like the back of his hand and takes you not only to everything you want to see but to fascinating places you haven't even heard os! We saw a more complete Israel than any of our friends on regular organized tourist trips. Shmuel taught us a great deal about the geography and history of the places we visited. He also has a great sense of humor, is a lot of fun to be with and picks great places to eat. We could not recommend more highly and more enthusiastically seeing Israel with Shmuel as your guide.
