Jaffa Antique Market

This market and winding streets are very easy to explore and it's a short bus ride from Tel Aviv or a 30 minute walk

Great place to walk around, to see the flea market, the views over Tel Aviv and the sea, and the historical places showing the importance of Jaffa in the history of the region.

Wonderful shops and restaurants await amongst the narrow streets of Old Jaffa in the old port of Tel Aviv. Get a feeling of what Tel Aviv was like before it became a bustling modern city.

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!
