The Acre Port

The Acre Port is located at the south-eastern end of Old Acre, is a harbor for fishing boats and yachts and is built on top of the remains of an ancient port that was active as early as the fourteenth century BCE. The port was developed further in the Roman period and served the Roman army during the Great Revolt. During the time of Crusaders the importance of the port reached a peak but it was destroyed when the Mamluks conquered the city. During the Ottoman rule in the eighteenth century the port once again rose in importance and the remains that can be seen today are mostly from that period. Today, visitors to the Acre Port can walk along the promenade and watch the fishermen at work, sit down and grab a bite in one of the restaurants or go on a lovely cruise and watch the city from the sea.

For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
