The flea market, the ancient little streets the renews harbor - all amazing. And there are many many little restaurants that become so alive in the evenings! Designer stores, second hand stores, beer flows like water. GREAT area!

Old Jaffa is vibrating with activity and human life, however, also have quiet Public Gardens. So its the perfect trip for a day where you would like to get away from the beaches of Tel Aviv and enjoy some old architecture and take a nap in the shade of a palm three in one of the many Gardens.

Old Jaffa is a nice place, just not particulary special. It is on a hill so could give a couple of good views over the beach and the city itself.

Jaffa Port is one of the oldest ports in the regions and has a couple of archaeological sites. If you decide to head to this picturesque area of Tel Aviv, make sure to visit the Visitor's Center. For very few shekels, you can enjoy a forty minute tour that explains the incredible historical events that took place in this area.... More

I visited Old Jaffe market with a few friends on a week long trip to Israel and loved being able to haggle with the local street vendors. You can find some very interesting souvenirs to take home with you at each of the shops. It is definitely worth visiting! Take the walk back to Tel Aviv along the beach to... More

It was an incredibly pleasant few hours we spent wandering around Old Jaffa. Soaking up the atmosphere and the history was a nice respite from the urban hustle and bustle of Tel Aviv. It's an easy walk from the beaches and hotel strip or you can hire a bicycle for something different.

So much incredible history to take in ......... so much to enjoy from the old to the new. You can feel the presence of Phoenician Traders, Crusaders, etc etc.

The city and the church are good to walk through. The road is paved and uneven. Simon the tanners house is here. The catholic church is beautiful and the arch. There is an excavation going on near by which is great to see.

Just a short distance from downtown Tel Aviv, is Old Jaffa. This small town on a hillock has a great historical past. It was home to Alexander's army and a host of peoples through the ages. Old Jaffa today is a lovely place to walk through with its alleyways, quaint homes and shops and its flea market loaded with bric-a... More
