A must while in TLV!

Very nice restoration work of the old city and port. Don't miss the Jaffa History Museum. Excellent views of Tel Aviv from the hill.

An interesting and enjoyable area to walk around with plenty of restaurant choices. The area has lot's of shops too and is close to the beach. Some buildings are undergoing refurbishment, so I think it will be even more interesting to visit in 12 months.

We enjoyed strolling through the narrow walkways. Seeing the typical sights (St. Peter's Church, Simon the Tanner's house, the hang orange tree), but also enjoyed the artists shops along the way. Whether sculpture, jewelry, painting or Judaica, everything was really beautiful although quite pricey.

Amazing shops, restuarnats, cafes, parks, and history. The sunsets from here are breath taking! Be ready to walk and climb though this is an ancient city with "streets" that are staircases.

Check out the flea market, the side streets, I was there alone and felt safe, the Old Port... More

It is new modern and invitiing. There are many shops and restaurants. It is a beautiful setting but I found nothing special outside of the usual food items and "chakas".
