Without a GPS mapping app on my phone I would have been totally lost walking the narrow streets. Some are picturesque and some of the Souks are interesting, but I would only set aside an hour of your time to wander around.

We are fascinated by the story of the knights and the Crusaders. The Knights Templar story, acted out here in Acre (Acco) is one of legend.
