About the tour

Culinary Tour with Nurit

Some say that the best way to connect to where you are is through success. The local flavors, the spices, the smells and the colors, reveal things that have never been said and secrets that pass from word of mouth and from heart to soul.

Nurit offers a culinary tour that stimulates all the senses and leaves a taste of more. A tour of Old Akko in places that will surprise with flavors and most importantly …participants do not stay hungry!

A tasting tour of the market allows you to feel the area, breathe in the smells of local coffee and spices. Stroll through the market alleys and stalls, get to know the fishermen’s stories, get recipes and mingle with veteran stalls owners.

The tour reveals to the participants the authentic Akko consisting of a mosaic of merchants, stalls and restaurants alongside new trends developing in the area.
