A lot of character - seemed to be a lot going on , with a mix of modern and old styles. Some interesting shops and restaurants and shops and religious buildings , but we did not have much time. A good place to explore.

Jaffa Port is Charming with lots of modern restaurants and good souvenir shopping. The port itself has been cleaned up and is easy and friendly to walk around and take in the sites. There is a whole new section of trendy restaurants, small bars and boutique shopping.
