Old Jaffa is within walking distance of most parts of Tel Aviv. Lots of history mixed with small shops and great restaurants.

Tel Aviv is a pretty modern city, so this is a really nice trip into the past. Old buildings, cobblestone streets. It's a lovely place to walk through both during the day and at night. There are several restaurants in the square near the museum, as well as small shops where you can get snacks and freshly squeezed fruit drinks... More

Really old, beautiful buildings and streets that highlight the history and architecture from long ago. Such an interesting juxtaposition of new and old with Tel Aviv right next door. It's like stepping back in time to visit Jaffa. And if you like art to view or purchase, this is the place!
