“Very nice and authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Very nice and authentic, really a must see when in Tel Aviv. You walk up from Tel Aviv up to Jaffa and tour around. Nice restaurants/bars, art galleries and little shops. Beautifully restaurated.

“Place not to be missed in Tel Aviv”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Take an evening stroll along the seaboard to the old Jaffa (or better still, jog :) ). Take a picture with the church and sunset. It's nice.
It is a wonderful place to walk and shop in the old renovated city. At the hilltop, take a picture of the city and sea.

“Old Jaffa Got Renovated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Always fun to stroll around in the old streets of Jaffa:
food, senses, shops
And now that the boardwalk from Tel Aviv is fully connected with Jaffa, the best thing is to rent bike in Tel Aviv and rise all the way to Jaffa (yes, there is a Tel Ofan stop there)

“Step back in time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Had a wonderful breakfast at Mr.Shakshuka's then wandered the neighborhoods and bazaar. Friday morning lots of activity especially the sook! Got some fabulous pastries!
Took lots of photos. A great place to do a self-guided tour.

“Do not miss this the market!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

You could spend your whole visit in old Jaffa. The market is the best, teeming with people, smells, and sounds: a visual delight.
Look for the old twisty Zodiac alleys. Hidden treasure: the Alana Gordon Museum.
