Incredibly unearthed Medieval fortress. Give yourselves a lot of time here. There isn’t so much to see and experience - I think you need at least two hours.

Very impressive. They are rebuilding a lot of excavated areas. The walk through the fortress, halls and tunnels is a fantastic experience of walking down history. Having a food guide or doing through a tour would help.

There is no doubt that tremendous efforts were taken to bring this incredible maze of rooms and tunnels to life. It was indeed very impressive to walk through it and learn about crusaders day to day lives. It was so unfortunate that the artist shops...More

If in Acre, do the Crusader Fortress, with the Audiobook, but don't bother with the package that includes the Hammam, the wall treasures and the Templer tunnel. You can skip these three, they are a total waste of time. Better use your time for some...More

Wandering through the Fortress was so informative. The 3-D Virtual mini movie experience of the City in the Crusader era was incredible to watch. Great for kids with a fascination in knights and swords.

Loved this beautiful, historical fortress. We had a tour - which I would recommend as it is a sprawling complex and would be easy to miss things. Loved that it is a living place with hundreds of families living in the walls! It is a...More

Strongly suggest a carrier if you plan on touring the Templar tunnels and walking the fortress walls. There are numerous steps and uneven walkways, some from cobblestone so pushing a stroller would be problematic. Enjoy

The prior two answers are sound. The cheapest option is the train; taking an express bus /shared ride to Tel Aviv and then catching the train to Acre is probably fastest/cheapest without a rental car. (We took a shuttle to... More
