Old City

Acre-Israel

Drop by this famous old city on the northern coast of the Mediterranean. Surrounded by a wall and a moat, one can listen to tales about the Napoleon army and see historic attractions such as the El-Jazar's Mosque, Pillar's Inn, Crusader's Tunnel etc. Also, experience middle-eastern cultures in the authentic marketplace here. 

DAY 01

The Old City

  • Napoleon Hill: We will start our tour overlooking the old city from the hill on which the Napoleon army once stood and fired at the old city. We will get the big picture of how and when did the city of Acre become so prominent in the history of Israel.

  • Visitor Center - Knight's Halls: Beneath our feet still lies the old Crusader capital of Acre. We will hear about the different orders of the Crusader army, walk through their streets and experience their amazing architecture.

  • Walls of the old city: Do walk on the city walls that will help unfold the story of the great defeat of the Napoleon army in Acre.

  • "El-Jazar's Mosque" and Turkish Bazaar: Jumping to the Ottoman period, we will hear about the ancient relic still lying in the most prominent mosque of Acre. In a walk through the Turkish bazaar, we will see some local artists and bond with the locals.

  • The Marketplace: Amazing colors, scents and tastes will lead us the marketplace. There, we would get to know the way to bargain, trade and look for the best goods. It's also the time for the famous Hummus meal during our lunch break.

  • Pillars' Inn: The Beautiful seamen Inn lies right by the port and holds one of six unique clock towers in Israel. The mark of the Sultan tells the story of the whole Ottoman empire. The amazing granite pillars hold a hidden bond to the Crusaders who once ruled the city.

  • Crusader's Tunnel:  Know about the contingency plan that was formed by the mighty Knights Templars in Acre. They had built a secret underground escape tunnel from the keep to their private port. We will tread in their wake, exploring the secrets of the tunnels.

  • Merchants Inn: We will finish our tour at the beautiful Merchants Inn. Now flourishing with restaurants, in its walls lie the secret plan of the one Jewish advisor who came up with the means to defeat Napoleon's army and change Israel's history forever.
