Good walking city. Signage is random, so read about sites before you go. Well worth the visit. We found it better to stay at sea level before heading up into the city a little further than the signs would direct you.

If you are in Tel Aviv, it is a Must to visit Jaffa. Especially it's surroundings near the clock tower it is absolutly worth seeing. A very active and great area with little cafes to enjoy. A lot of antic stores, which are fun to explore. Just take your time and enjoy this area to your fullest.

I loved view from the old city to TA, looks really amazing. There's special atmosphere, we saw a lot of small shops and restaurants. Majority of people who live there are Arabs so we eat falafel and shaverma there. Streets are small, old city is really very beautiful, good for wedding pictures.

The food was very good but is way too much. We shared one dish but we pay half of the price for it extra. We never finished the whole meal

Nice wander. We got the number 10 bus from near Gorgon beach then walked back along the beach. Worth a visit. We took advantage of the 'free' tour but there's plenty of placards about, making a tour not completely necessary.

There is so much History and things to see here. You an take a free Tour of Jaffa. Great restaurants, antique shops and neighborhoods to see in Jaffa. Everyone should visit Israel and Jaffa.

A number of years ago, the City made it advantageous for artists to move in here. There's now a great number of artist studios and galleries here. Fun to walk up and down the stone walkways.

Touring Jaffa with the Sandeman's tour guide Stav was one of the highlights of our wonderful visit to Tel Aviv. Jaffa is so well preserved, it reminded me of the Old City of Jerusalem. We also enjoyed a fabulous lunch at Dr. Shakshuka after the tour. And the flea market is interesting.
