Very interesting to see how new housing is constructed inside or on top of older housing. It's a fascinating place that reflects both ancient times and modernity.

Walk the old town in the morning before the heat sets in and crowds show. There are numerous plaques on the walls around the old town which are interesting. Some lovely artisan shops and restaurants. A full half day should allow enough time to enjoy and still give time to pop down the beach after.

The Old city of Jaffa is a place with all the heritage buildings which is very very well maintained city and all the citizens living there are also very nice and sweet. This city has a lot of old history to know about.

JAFFA is special and going there during sunset. Try even earlier and visit the Visitors Center showing the history of JAFFA. Stroll through the narrow alleys down to the port and have a dinner there! At sunset be at the park and have a view of TLV seashore and sky like facing north! Enjoy

I loved this cute area. So old and historic, with a really cool trendy feel with lots of cute shops and restaurants. Lots of old buildings and art graffiti to look at, I would recommend just wandering the streets! You can take a free walking tour too daily( think it's around 1-2 pm) just stop by the friendly visitor center... More

The old city of Jaffa was one of the highlights of our Israel holiday. The sea view and the old streets are very impressing. Also the park on top of the hill is very nice.

Very interesting walking around. Better if you are with a tourist guide who knows the history to explain the interesting details.
