Acre, also known as Akko, lies on the northern edge of the Bay of Acre in northern Israel and receives many Baha'i pilgrims.
On its present site, Akko possesses a long history of various cultures: Israelites, Greeks, Romans, Crusaders and Arabs. Akko is a holy city in the Bahá'í Faith and has been recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as a site of extraordinary significance to the world's cultural heritage.
The Old City is very small, and easily walked across. It is also within walking distance of the train and bus stations.
