Trumpeldor Cemetery was not a place that I expected to visit; sure, it was on the list, but it was all right with me if I had just skipped it. However, one day on my way back to my hotel, I veered off Ben Yehuda Street, and I took the minimal detour down Trumpeldor; it was here I saw a... More

I have walked by this cemetary on many occasions but on my last visit to Israel I finally went inside in search of Arik Einstein's grave. It was a very hot sunny day in Tel Aviv and it took me over a hour to find his grave but I wanted to pay my respects to this amazing artist!

One of my favorite places to visit in Tel Aviv: the founders, poets, artists, builders, planners of Tel Aviv from decades ago and just last year. This time I went specifically to find Arik Einstein's grave - one of Israel's most beloved singers who died a year ago. The title of my review says it all - so much of... More

Read as much as you can before you go or, even better, try to find a local for a tour. There is so much history here and so many great stories to be told but if you don't read and understand Hebrew, it is just a pretty place to walk around. Reminds me of Trinity Church cemetery in NYC.

There's something about cemeteries that draws me in...Old Cementary in Tel Aviv is filled with the history of its people contained in this small, well-maintained place. City streets and homes enclose the cementary on all sides,life and death are side by side. The architecture of these stones are as varied as the people they mark. A experience to remember. I...

Sure a few of us thought about the first foundations of the city of Tel-Aviv and othere known people. If you want to know where they are - go to the Old Cemetery in Tel-Aviv and you will see all the most known names

As somebody said,, all the "streets" of Tel Aviv can be found here, and other famous residents, too. But the most moving part are the graves of all the unknown soldiers who died in local battles in the War of Indpendence. Young boys and girls who went into the army, literally, right off of the ship. There was no system... More
