WORLD HERITAGE SITES IN ISRAEL.

UNESCO has designated two more World Heritage Sites in Israel: Masada and Acre (Akko). They join the Old City of Jerusalem, already a member of this elite group. Masada is a 90-minute drive from Jerusalem. Acre is a walled port city north of the port city of Haifa. Beneath Acre are almost intact ruins of a Crusader city dating from 1104-1291.
