After crowds in center, fantastic, views and history abound

Walking up the hill, discovered wonderful historical places and artistic shops. Beautiful gardens too. Fabulous views of Mediterranean & coastline of Tel Aviv.

The market used to be antique market and I have enjoyed many times in the past, just to stroll around and what I may find. These days, it had become a trendedy place to spend an evening with no much antiques to find..it became a restaurant and pubs place.

We had one full day in the old city of Jaffa. I call it a city because it looks totally different than the rest of Tel Aviv. You will see amazing buildings, markets and parks. It is a must see if you are visiting Tel Aviv.

Great view to the sea. You can wonder around and get something to eat from the various restaurants and bakeries

Staying in Tel Aviv in a modern hotel, Jaffa was a charming contrast - walls of the shops were over a foot thick. Beautiful views from higher points over the sea and Tel Aviv. Everyone was very friendly and polite.

The old city is full of life! Lots of shops and food everywhere. There are tourist type souvenir shops too for those that wanna get things for memories later or as gifts.

Must go for Tel Aviv! Right next to the beachside. With little streets, Restaurants and so on. You do not even necessarily have to avoid the tourist places. They are also very nice.

Buildings and clock towers in white stone overlooking the sea, souk like ambience in street shops , Curios laced streets , quirky cafe and the Jaffa old city makes an idyllic setting for a lazy afternoon. Women will love the place more than men
