It is full of nice architecture, vibrant restaurants, and a colourful market. A very nice way to spend an afternoon and the fish restaurants are great.

The jaffa port and the flea market is nice for a small stroll. Theres a nice view of the sea, but not a place to spend a whole day

the almost daily flea market, old buildings, little restaurants (especially the humus places). Old Jaffa is rather small so easy to walk.

Part of it is completely renovated and looks incredibly clean, polished and fancy, the other parts are run down, but interesting and safe nonetheless. See both parts. Avoid restaurants... More

We walked along the promenade from Tel Aviv to Jaffa. Depending on where you are staying it can be a long walk - at least 45 minutes from the more northerly beach hotels - and it is hot in the summer. Jaffa is the old part of Tel Aviv with a flea market (mostly old junk but some things of... More
