The old city of Jaffa is quaint and fun and full of life. Recently, Jaffa has become more gentrified with lots of galleries and attractions. It is definitely worth exploring.

Typical old Mediterranean town with old fisherman port. If you plan to visit Jerusalem during your visit in Israel, focus on modern Tel Aviv and leave the old town to Jerusalem.

If you don't mind walking, you can take a taxi one way and walk the other way. There are many interesting restaurants, but we find famous The old Man and The sea worth visiting. They serve plenty (almost too many) appetizers so be prepared... Nice...More

We ended up biking to the tayelet. It was really fun walking around the market. It's very modern and super old worldly at the same time. I would check out which days the Tel aviv craft fair is there, that was lots of fun.

There is a little taste of the old city here. I found it unremarkable however there are several good restaurants in Jaffa.

We took the free Sandemanns tour of Jaffa with Noga. It was fascinating and well worth the two hours. Chock-full of interesting history and sights to see here. Brings context to the area and it's origins. Highly recommend visiting with a tour guide.

After seeing the landmark clock tower, we walked to the old port area which is one of the oldest ports in the world and is mentioned in the Bible's Book of Jonah. Horoscope fans will enjoy the Wishing Bridge where you locate your Zodiac sign...More

You can but just be aware of the cut off time on a Friday which is around 1400. Saturday was not a problem to go visit and see everything.
