Not the best place for walk and tour, especially during the day. If you are in Israel (or only in Tel Aviv) there are better places to spend your time.

A beautiful and ancient part of old Tel Aviv, Jaffa has been revitalized and is a wonderful place to spend an evening. You can easily find a restaurant overlooking the Sea, and is best seen at sundown. Plus, Old Jaffa is near the beach as well. My wife and I went there our first day in Tel Aviv-what a romantic...

This area of Tel Aviv, perched directly on the Mediterranean, would be worth a visit just for the amazing restaurant scene. There are points of great historic interest as well. Highly recommended!

This old port city called Jaffa is an excellent location in the late afternoon doing some local and antiques shop strolling. There are many great local restaurants in Jaffa and great fish is offered at the waterfront where you can sit outside and enjoy the beautiful sunsets of Tel-Aviv. To discover the area you need to be prepared to walk... More

The old city of Yaffo (Jaffa) is a lovely place for a romantic stroll. There are many small coffee shops and restaurants, designer shops and a lovely thrift market (on Friday morning).

Jaffa is one of the oldest port cities in the world and located on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. A mixture of modern boutiques and ancient streets makes a visit to this area worthwhile. Art galleries and jewelry stores and History abounds as you walk through here although some of the cobble stone pathways can be difficult to... More

Beautiful and quaint old town, with wonderful shops and boutiques spread all around this original seaside port, just great for meandering or even a spot of photography, would be highly recommended.10/10
