The hostelier crusaders built this to welcome pilgrims to the holy land. It is large and has excellent images projected on the stone walls and curated exhibits. Well worth the drive from Haifa.

It is an impressive fortress with quite a few new attractions, s bit touristic, but worth a visit. There is also a nice an impressive tunnel leading to the old Port. Worth a visit.

Quite an expenssive price for the 40 minutes show. To violent for young kids. Small bottle of water was 10 ILS and on top of that for every visit to the toilet you have to pay 3 ILS. Better skipping it

The 11th century crusader fortress that is located beneath the old city of Acre is definitely worth a visit, interesting history and well restored.

First time in Acco/Acre and I wanted to see it all. It was hot, so we thought to start with the Templar Tunnels. When we went in, they offered us ticket bundles, so we took the full deal. 62 NIS a person, tickets to 5...More

One ticket is all you need. Follow arrows on the floor. You should allow two hours, but it could also get to be twice the time if you really get into it.

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
