As a port of entry, the Jaffa port has seen better days - many of them. This is rumoured to be the oldest functioning port in the world.

A beautiful setting and very picturesque. Plus, there are lots of historical markers along the shoreline explaining the historic uses of the buildings.

There is not fishing boat or cruise tours available at the port. It's not like in Croatia or Montenegro where people visit the coast line to find a cruise tour available whole day long. But the location is safe with many restaurants in a building...More

The food in this place was AM-AZ-ING. I have travelled throughout Italy and I don’t think I have enjoyed the food as much there as I did in Siciliana. The food was 5 stars but the service is what let this place down. The waiters...More

Some wonderful restaurants located in a scenic "happening" place. Lots of people milling about enjoying balmy weather and beautiful scenery. Be sure to visit at least once while in Tel Aviv

Historical and interesting The sea side is marvellous. The creators' craftsmen's shops are really beautiful. You should taste the appetizers and lemonade in the restaurants by the port. Very delicious.

Jaffa port view was from our bus. A beautiful sight ! I wish we had more time and energy to see many more places in Old Jaffa as they all appeared very beautiful beyond imagination.

Nice place, but don't get near during week ends if you don't like masses of people. Many restaurants and shops.

You can walk along the shore, there are a lot of newer and older small boats and ships. There are restaurants, it is a nice place to spend 1-2 hours

Great place along the sea. Must take 1 hour walk and check it out few restaurants on the way. Quite, pretty much clean area and some small fisherman boats. Worst of walking

Saturday open hours in Jaffa (3 Replies)
Hi We are only going to be in the area briefly at the end of December and look like we only have a Saturday to visit Jaffa. Dose anyone know if any of the following places are shut during the day on Saturdays? - Jaffa port markets - Jaffa Flee market - Shuk ha pish pishim - Yefet St shops - Dr Shakshuka & Said el Abu Lafia and Sons Pita Bakery - galleries, restaurants, memorabilia stores. Thanks

Jaffa Flee market, Shuk ha pish pishim and Dr. Shakshuka are closed. Pita bakery is open and so are the shops in the Jaffa port. Yefet street - some are open, further south more shops are open. Most restaurants are open, those that are not kosher.

train from Ben-Gurion direct to HaHagana station in Tel Aviv (7 Replies)
I am wondering if it is possible to take the train from Ben-Gurion airport directly to Tel Aviv's HaHagana station at 6 a.m. on a Sunday morning, then take a taxi to our hotel in the Jaffa Port area. When I enter Ben-Gurion as the starting station and HaHagana as the destination into Israel Railways' "Drive Plan" page online, it seems quite possible (it also says the trip takes 12 mintues?!) Past Trip Advisor forums and several 2014 guide books recommend taking the train only as far as the...More

Egged bus from Tel Aviv to Masada (9 Replies)
I will need to take Egged bus from Tel Aviv to Masada through Jerusalem on Oct 31, Thursday. The bus schedule from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem has few slots I like. I will take bus 405 at Tel Aviv New Central Bus Station at 2:45pm and arrive in Jerusalem Central Bus Station at 3:47pm. I can catch bus 486 at 4:15pm and arrive in Masada at 6:02pm, which is the last one on that day. Is Egged bus always on time? The schedule is based on current week (Aug, 2013) and I assume Oct is the same. In...More

There are two bus stations in Tel Aviv: the Central Bus Station in the south part of the city and the Arlozorov Terminal in the north part. The 405 goes to Jerusalem from the CBS and the 480 goes from Arlozorov. Take the 480 if your hotel is in the centre or north part of Tel Aviv because you should avoid the CBS If possible. I suggest leaving Tel Aviv about 30 minutes earlier: - the 480 may depart a few minutes late. - the traffic may be bad and the bus will arrive later than...More
