Acre, one of the oldest inhabited settlements on earth

Acre, just a 25-minute drive by car or train from Haifa, carries the distinction of being among the oldest continuously-inhabited settlements on earth, dating back to the Middle Bronze Age (2000-1550 BC). Today’s population consists of Jewish people, Muslims, Christians, Druze and Baháʼís, making for a fascinating mix of cultures to explore in this ancient port city.

Today, you can still see fishermen casting their nets and enjoy some of their catches in the many specialty fish restaurants along the quay, which boasts a Mediterranean ambiance and unobstructed views of the sea. Remains of the 800-year old Crusader port are still visible.
