As you begin touring the city, you may want to take advantage of the multi-site ticket. This is a self-guided tour includes an audio guide, with recorded information, in English.
Throughout the route, there are numbered signs. When you want to hear a particular explanation, you simply press the appropriate number and listen, which enables you to tour at your own pace.
The multi-site ticket includes:
Hospitaller Castle - the city's main attraction.
Templar Tunnel - and another, smaller tunnel.
Pasha’s Turkish Bath
Okashi Museum -a small art museum.
Tickets may be purchased at the Knights’ Halls entrance (located right across from the Al Jazzar Mosque). Plans are underway to move the main vistor center to another location, so by the time you visit you may have to purchase tickets elsewhere. .
Those interested in venturing beyond Akko to see the grottos at Rosh Hanikra will be interested to know that combo tickets are available for Akko’s main sites and Rosh Hanikra. There are a number of options – so be sure, verify exactly what the ticket does or doesn't include.
