    AKKO

    The story of Akko, like that of most of the cities in the fertile crescent, goes far back in time. The first written evidence     testifying to the existence of the city dates to almost 4,000 years ago, for its name appears in the Tel el Amarna tablets
    dated around the 14th century B.C. Throughout its long history, many conquering peoples have laid claim to this     hospitable port. It thus became Aka of the Greeks, Ptolemais of Ptolemy 11 Philadelphus, Colonia Claudia Felix of     Emperor Claudius, Saint jean d'Acre of the Crusaders and Akka of the Arabs. .
