“Fun time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

We had a great time walking through this area. There is so much history here and things to see. The narrow corridors and beautiful garden areas were nice to see. Some of the views were amazing also. Plan to spend a couple hours walking around the entire area. We walked from Tel Aviv but you can take the #10 city bus if you want.

“A Great Day Out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Old City of Jaffa is a sharp contrast to the modernity of Tel Aviv's sky scrapers, the tallest building being the clock tower. From the port, there's a small maze of boutique shops and businesses. Head down to the market where the jewish and muslim cultures melt into a cultural chaos of restaurants, shops and traffic.

“Walking to Old City Jaffa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

We took a walk from Tel Aviv to Jaffa on a Saturday afternoon. It was a very pleasurable walk along the beachfront right into the old city. We walked up through the park and eventually ended up at the waterfront where there are many eateries and shops. We had a nice dinner and walked back enjoying the sunset. It was very beautiful and picturesque. I highly recommend doing this!
