Amazing to stroll the streets of Old Jaffa and have history come alive. My guide, Danny Cohen, was great and pointed out the historical relevance of this area.

Actually this is part of Jaffa city but has been listed as Yefet street here. Yefet (after Biblical Japheth, Noahs son) is Jaffas main street with the famous Clock Tower Square, Abulafia bakery, Flea Market etc. Many restaurants here.From here you can easily walk to port, old City, artists’ Quarter, Gan HaPisgah Gardens etc.

Lots to see here, from the flea market, the port, churches and mosques. Just a cool ancient area. Many good restaurants and a mixture of cultures.

I went Saturday night, and the vendors were closing up. However there is dancing in the middle of the square. I loved to watch people dancing tango. We only stayed there for a short time, but you should put it in your "must do" list!

One of my best place in israel. The atmosphere is great, and the view are really authentic! I advise you to travel at shuk apishpeshim, eat at abu hasan or pundak the lux in the market. If you are not israel, dont go to dr.shakshuka, cause the price to tourists is different. You can also visit the pedestrian

Old Jaffa is a place which enchants you with the first steps there. It is so especially because the entertainments and landmarks there are really various.

Old Jaffa is a must for tourists coming to Israel. It's always been a favorite place of mine since I first came to Israel. It lends a stunning view of the Tel Aviv Coastline. The cobblestone streets of old Jaffa are fun to walk around. The shops have great gifts to bring back home from local artists. The shop owners... More

The Old Jaffa is a nice small place to visit where you can feel the presence of the muslim community, then take a walk along the beach to Yafo...bare feet in the sea...
