Hello from Akko!
The last few days have been a unique and incredible experience for Epic Israel!

A comfortable boutique hotel located in the old town wall of Acre. From the terrace (on top of the wall), one has lovely views of the bay and Haifa (on a clear day). Breakfast was good with a great range of cheeses, shakshuka, mezzes etc.
