By Olga Traveller August 21, 2017

Hello Everyone! I am planning to fly to Tel Aviv in September and was thinking about visiting Akkon. Does anyone know how to get there from Tel Aviv and how much this costs? And would you recommend staying there for a night or is a day trip enough?

Thanks a lot!

Greeting from Germany,
Olga

Hi Olga,

I would take the train from Tel Aviv. It takes about 90 minutes and it's a pretty comfortable ride with no need to switch trains. It costs 35 NIS one way or 57 NIS there and back. Here is the Israel rail website in ENG http://www1.rail.co.il/en/Pages/Homepage.aspx
Hope you have fun here:)

Hallo
Du kannst einfach mit dem zug fahren nach akkon .
Mit dem zug kostet ca. 45 nis (12 oder 13 euro )
Und beim flughafen gibt es viele taxi aber es ist teuerer als dem zug ,
Wenn sie da übernachten möchten , 1 tag maximal das ist ja genug .
Mach's gut ;)
Tschüss und willkomen in ISRAEL 😍

Hi Olga,
You can take a bus from TLV, but not on friday or saturday .
U can also take a train from Tlv to Akkon and i think it's better.
I think that better not to stay there, because Akkon a small town and 3-4 hours it's anough.

Hi,

public transportation is available every day. that being said: on Friday it ends early afternoon, and re-starts on Saturday evening.

If all you want to visit is the old city - a couple of hours will suffice. That being said, one may find nice boutique hotels there, thus it's worth considering staying there over night as well, and exploring the old city both during the day and in the evening (beautiful sunset and good restaurants + the Templars' museum: http://www.akko.org.il/en/Old-Acre-The-Templars-Tunnel).

Enjoy your stay!

There is an apps for the smartphone called "Moovit". It would provide you with all options for public transportation with time table , stations to go, how long would it take etc. If you have your own rental car then use waze. Recently there is also a trip from Haifa to Akko and back by boat, it shouldbe nice to see the shoreline from the sea. This option is mainly for tourists.
One day should be more than enough.

Hi Olga,
You can get to Akko by train or bus. My personal preference would be by train.
It takes about 1:30 hours. I think a day trip is o.k since only the old city is nice & it's not big. enjoy your trip!

Hiya! :-)

Easily: take the train. Trains Northward to Nahariyya ('Akko is their one-before-last stop, unless it's direct) leave Tel-Aviv frequently, from one of the stations (BEST of which would be Arlozorov/"Savidor", although "haShalom"/"'Azri`eli" Shopping-Mall is also possible), anytime EXCEPT Weekends and Holidays (a religious fundamentalist country, you see).
However, there are, sometimes, construction works, somewhere along the line (for example, this week, now, it is closed), so best to first check their website:
http://www1.rail.co.il/en/Pages/Homepage.aspx

Now, as for the duration: if you're only interested in 'Akko, then a few hours day-tour would do; nonetheless, you may want to visit Haifa, travel through the Galilee etc., in which case, it would be at least three days, probably more.

Well I guess you mean the ancient city Acco (or Acre, Aco, ...)
The easiest way to get there from Tel-Aviv is by train, 2 way ticket is about 60NIS (about 15 Eu), the travel duration is about 90 minutes
If you get to the Acco old city by the morning, I think that one day trip is enough.

Just take into account, that if you're going from Jerusalem to the Dead Sea, you will be traveling through the occupied territories.
Hello Danniel,
what does this mean exactly?
That the route connecting them goes right through the occupied Phalastinian territories ("the west bank"). Simple.
Ah yes okay! But it is possible to travel there safetly? Sorry for all the questions..
If you meant the city of Akko there is a train station there and that's the fastest way...

Hi Olga, I believe you referring to Akko (not Akkon) - best and cheapest way to travel there is using A train from TLV. It takes around 2 hours. There are several stations in TLV - you can google it easily.
Day trip in Akko is enough - recommend traveling the old city quarter - (The beach area is second option) - If you are a Hummus fan, try `Saaid` in the old city - some claims its the best Hummus in Israel
Best of luck.

Hello Olga,
Akkon is a small city but with a lot of history, i think one or two days is perfect to see everything there.
To get there from tel aviv, there is a train or buses, i don't know for the prices but something like 20NIS.
You should download Moovit app for all your trip, it gonna help you with transport.
Have fun in Israel!
