“Great for exploring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

I went around on my own and it was great to submerge in all the shops, markets, great restaurants and of course friendly people. Definitely worth a visit! Budget at least half a day though!

“New & Old”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

nothing like walking through 3000 year old streets while multi million dollar houses and sophisticated architecture buildings are nested there two, thats the beauty of Israel, tradition and modern day life combined with lots of street vendors with a cool bazaar to browse through, lots of hidden spots and great food

“History mixed with an artist colony.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

A bit of everything to walk and explore. Took a good 1/2 day to walk through the restored sections and down the hill into the town proper for lunch.

“Wonderful place”

Lovely wonderful place - buildings and promenade built in old style. A nice view to the sea and to Tel Aviv beach. You can enjoy day as well as night walk in every alley in old Jaffa...
