As you proceed around the old city walls of the fortress city of Acco, there are many parts that have sunken partly into the ocean, this is just one of many sections you can see.
It is so totally different touring the walls in calm weather or during a heavy sea storm, you can feel the waves hitting the walls and almost imagine them crumbling before the onslaught of the sea. But be careful that you are not "caught" by a wave that crests OVER those stone ramparts, it may be very wet and cold in winter.

There are several restaurants located along the fortress walls, which provide a nice place to sit, but the prices are generally very high and the food is not worth the price.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
