So much incredible history to take in ......... so much to enjoy from the old to the new.

“The view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

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.

“Quite Fascinating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

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 brac. The lanes adjoining the Clock Tower have many interesting cafe's and traditional bakeries.
Walk between the narrow lanes between the houses, up the wide steps past the Zodiac Fountain to St. Peter's Church, down the hill and along the promenade with great views of the sea. Saunter in the flea market, and to relax, sit in a cafe taking in the atmosphere of the place.

“Some very nice sights to see here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

This city is a short trip from Tel Aviv and is well worth the trip if you are into historic sites to see. There are a multitude of places to see like the Hanging Tree, the Statue of Faith, and many artisans selling their wares in shops. You can also walk down to the pier and have a nice shopping and eating experience while looking out over the water.
