Beautiful town! The hotel we stayed at was on Gordon Beach, Old Jaffa city was about an hour walk. Would rent a city bike next time and bike down the pathway that runs along the coast.

Must visit when in Tel Aviv, One can walk down or go Cycling from Hayarkon Street to Jaffa Old city by the beach and get the good breeze. Amazing monuments and well maintained historical location

This area has a certain amount of architectural charm but the influence of modern commercialism has detracted from it rather than enhanced it.

The flea market area in Old Jaffa is now full of restaurants and cafes and every Tuesday night they have live music in the restaurants and cafes as well as street corners. They have Arts and Crafts stalls, vintage shops, and the Flea markets own shops too. Lively fun atmosphere.

I visited Old Jaffa during a quick walking tour in December. I was looking forward to my return visit this May. I enjoyed the alleyways that led to galleries and doorways. The seaside views were glorious.
