Great history in a very small town with lots of layers to unfold like an onion. Great experience, very educational.

The port area is nice to walk. Then you can go to the small alleys of the old town and spend time there. It's very romantic in the evening.

The unique atmosphere, the art Galleries, the restaurants for all tastes. Going there by bicycle is perfect. Be careful for the rules of using the bicycles for use on the street. The rules are not easy to understand.

Walked to Jaffa from Tel Aviv stopping at Mantra Ray for breakfast (definitely recommended) which took about 35 mins at a leisurely pace. The port area is being redeveloped and has a really cool relaxed feel to it.

The flea market was interesting, but definitely worth heading down to Abu Hassan for hummus.

Worth brig a bottle of water as it gets hot in the narrow streets and there are a few water fountains where you can refill your bottle.

Very interesting place to walk, though you need to be able to go up & down stairs. Very comfortable town square area. So many interesting and diverse shops. Many good restaurants in the area.
