A number of years ago, the City made it advantageous for artists to move in here. There's now a great number of artist studios and galleries here. Fun to walk up and down the stone walkways.

Touring Jaffa with the Sandeman's tour guide Stav was one of the highlights of our wonderful visit to Tel Aviv. Jaffa is so well preserved, it reminded me of the Old City of Jerusalem. We also enjoyed a fabulous lunch at Dr. Shakshuka after the tour. And the flea market is interesting.

This was a remarkable and memorial journey thousands of years ago. You will experience an incredible walk into the Bible's past account of biblical people, places, and events.

I signed up for a walking tour of the Jaffa Old City but missed it because I was late. I ended up strolling around the Old City on my own which was an incredibly relaxing experience - just walking around appreciating the architecture, marvelling at how picturesque the beach is, eating some pretty yummy hummus.
