Old city of Acre – Israel

Acre (Hebrew: עַכּוֹ, ʻAkko; Arabic: عكّا‎) is a city in the northern coastal plain region of northern Israel at the northern extremity of Haifa Bay. Acre is one of the oldest continuously inhabited sites in the world.

Acre has a 75% Jewish and 25% Arabic population. The Acre’s old city area is very similar to Jerusalem’s old city in many ways but calmer, less busy atmosphere and with a sea port to make it more pleasant. Our visit to this city was brief and swift – here are some photos I captured.
