Jaffa is one of the oldest seaports in existence with a small fortress and gardens. There is a daily flea market where you can find an amazing variety of mostly useless stuff with a few gems in the mix but fun to walk through. Some excellent restaurants (I recommend Old Man And The Sea

A really delightful place to roam around and enjoy the 4000+ years of history. The city has invested a lot to rejuvenate the city and to clean it up. Still got a way to go but is well advanced. Certainly with an afternoon.

The very best way to conclude our trip to Israel. Nico took us down the history and archeology. The little roads and alleys are mesmerising.

This is by far, the coolest part of the city. It's got a great old world feel to it with a modern twist. There are many great restaurants around as well as great views. You gotta see it.

I loved walking in and around JAFFA. The artisan shops were wonderful, the sea is around every corner and the history of the whole place is awe inspiring. It was a treat to be able to spend the day in Jaffa and Tel Aviv.

I will not try to compete with the endless reviews over centuries of this unique place, nor with the beautiful songs written about old Jaffa (yafo). Because I am not so talented and a bit biased. Yafo is living, changing with every hour of the day and season. An inspiring spiritual nest for talented world class artists, wonderful galleries, jewelry... More
