Akko market is one of the biggest tourist attractions within the Old City. It looks like it kept its traditions and look unchanged for hundreds of years. The walls of the buildings that surround it could tell many stories, if they only could talk. The only things that never changed are smells and colors. Especially I like those herb and spice stalls that the market is most known for. Souvenirs can be purchased here as well, just don't forget to bargain. And this is the best place for sea food lovers. In a country were sea food is not kosher Akko market is among very few places were it can purchased very fresh and at a very reasonable price.
If you start your walk at the Al-Jazzar mosque and walk in a straight line through the market you'll find yourself by the port and the walls of the Old City. And on your way don't forget to stop and try those local foods that taste the best if bought from the simple and even unattractive stands. It's not only the taste of food they offer it's the taste of culture.
