That best describes this magical place, especially in the evening hours when you can look upon the gorgeous sea. Filles with beautiful bistro style restaurants, old world sidewalks, cafe's, ice cream places etc.

The Old City of Jaffa is beautiful, but provided me with little insight other than it being the location of the revelation to St. Peter that he should preach to the pagans. This is the location of Simon the Tanner, which is still located here. Plan no more than 90 minutes in Jaffa.

We had bad weather wished we could have seen the beautiful city in the sun! The market was a little irritating because the vendors were relentless.

There is a song in Hebrew that there is nothing like old Jaffa nights. To me there is also nothing like Old Jaffa at day time: the harbour area, the flee market, restaurants little shops and just strolling around

The oldest part of Tel-Aviv - an ancient town. You will be charmed by its small streets and stone buildings - the light goes through its doors and windows, feels like you're in a movie. Shops and cafes are pretty and with pleasant staff, and the port is a tiny reminder of an ancient cruises.
