If you are interested in history, like old towns with narrow alleys and picturesque houses, delicious romantic places to dine and walk by the see - you should visit there. It is not as authentic as it was two decades ago, but much cleaner and hospitable.

Prepare your legs well, you need around 2 hours to explore the area from the Old Jaffa to the Old Port (excluding the shopping and museum visit time)
