Visit Acre: "the crusaders' hip and happening capital"

Looking for the perfect summer vacation? Why not plan a truly period trip to the City of Acre. Robyn Young and Tom Hall of BBC History offer travel trips.

"The Christians may have lost Jerusalem back in 1244, but Acre has become the crusaders' hip and happening capital," write Young and Hall about this dream trip, which includes taking "the overland route across Christendom," and "Templars, Hospitallers and Teutonics will be able to stay in their own preceptories."
