Quiet old town to escape from the bussy city of Tel Aviv. Beautifull old houses and town square. Doesn't take much time in your schedule as it is just a small town.

Jaffa is a unique city where over 3000 years of world history is on display. Walk the markets, take a walking tour (or two) , have a drink in the old port and enjoy the beauty of this unusual site.
