Old Jaffa is a perfect morning of exploration. It has everything in a compact location: the port, a flea market, terrific restaurants, and, best of all, the overlook park to view the iconic Tel Aviv beach-line...a must!

Even if this "old city" is not too old, it is absolutely wonderful and charming. Beautiful view of a sea, climatic alleys, tasty and aromatic food. Must try fruitshakes made on your sight, must take a photo with an angel wings and see hanging tree.Must be there!

I always come here for the day if I am staying in Tel Aviv. Even though it's five minutes away from Tel Aviv it's like being in a different world. It's a port so you have the lovely sea view, and there's an old flea market (great of you want tat) and if you go up the hill there is... More

Old Jaffa has a lot to offer to Israeli and foreign tourists alike. Parts of the flea market are rough and other parts are more refined. There are plenty of good restaurants and the tourist traps are well worth a visit.
