Nicely reconstructed, so it seems artificial. Worth to plan to see the sunset from the steps near mosque. A couple of nice galleries with nice artistic jewellery

It's with a visit, but if there are too many bus tours that descend on it at once, it can be noisy and annoying. Maybe it's because we ran into just that situation with a couple of weddings added on while we were there. I'd recommend the freshly squeezed fruit juice stand in front of St Peter's Church.

Lovely place full of character and the artisans shops in the old town are lovely! The young designers stores on the main roads are nice and full of unique dresses and jewellery. There are some banged up shops selling cheap junk too and I loved the Palestinian bakeries selling fresh zaatar flat bread 😋

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.
