Interesting and beautiful section of the city. The market and the overlook(of Mediterranean ) were the highlights. Try falafel or the shawarma sandwiches on fresh pita. The hummus is also divine. A tourist office is conveniently located here as well.

The old city of Jaffa is an intriguing place to visit. Remnants from 3000 years ago onward untill today. A visit thorough history from the time of the Egyptian Pheroes, the Greecks the Romans the Crusaders,Napolleon,the Ottoman empire,the British empire and Israel. That's a lot to see! !
