      Thanks Tricia. Acre is indeed a time-machine. Although, most of the the historical Acre lies several meters underground. For example, the huge arched rooms from the Templar knights are 4 meters below ground. To find the paved road Cleopatra walked with her Egyptian flip-flops we need to dig more 😀
