It's strange to enjoy a cemetery, but it's a calm and charming place. The names on the graves are the names on the city map - all the important people of Tel Aviv are there.

This is such a lovely, historical, romantic place, filled with stories and histories or tragedy and peace. My family;s grandparents are there, and the most important writers and poets and songwriters.

As I came to the cemetery a small group had arrived to see Arik Einstein's grave. I don't know who he was, but they were excited about looking for it. To find it turn left just inside the main gate and follow the path down. It is nearly at the end, but you can't miss it as it is covered... More

During the tour you can view the tombstones of Moshe Sharett, who was the second Prime Minister of Israel. Meir and Dizengoff, the first mayor of... More

I visited the Yargon Cemetery. It must be the "Old Cemetery" because I had never been to a cemetery this big with so many graves, and everything was clean and respectful.

Trumpeldor Cemetery was not a place that I expected to visit; sure, it was on the list, but it was all right with me if I had just skipped it. However, one day on my way back to my hotel, I veered off Ben Yehuda Street, and I took the minimal detour down Trumpeldor; it was here I saw a... More

I have walked by this cemetary on many occasions but on my last visit to Israel I finally went inside in search of Arik Einstein's grave. It was a very hot sunny day in Tel Aviv and it took me over a hour to find his grave but I wanted to pay my respects to this amazing artist!

One of my favorite places to visit in Tel Aviv: the founders, poets, artists, builders, planners of Tel Aviv from decades ago and just last year. This time I went specifically to find Arik Einstein's grave - one of Israel's most beloved singers who died a year ago. The title of my review says it all - so much of... More

Read as much as you can before you go or, even better, try to find a local for a tour. There is so much history here and so many great stories to be told but if you don't read and understand Hebrew, it is just a pretty place to walk around. Reminds me of Trinity Church cemetery in NYC.
