Great views , clean air , quiet and holy place
Many parts are shabby & grubby. Corrupt administration
In a nutshell
Religious community - lots of study centres
We picked this place because it looked like the only offering something different than Falafel or Shoarma. Well, it was too hot to eat any of these heavy dishes. (I have a gentle stomach) I ordered Blintches with mushrrom and cheese. It was dry, mushrooms were canned and didn't feel the chesse. It wasn't a good gastronomic experience after all. But I have to admit, they have a great seating area outside, situated on the hill so you do have a great view. Just to enjoy the view, drink something here but don't eat.

Address: End of the "Tayelet" area
Probably you will notice the same as me. There are a thousand possible writings of the name of this town. It was pretty confusing to me at first, but due to the many cultural influences and the translations, there are many possible ways how to spell it.
Some examples here: Safed, Zefat, Tsfat, Zfat, Safad, Safes, Safet, Tzfat

Like mentioned in the other tips, most of the art galleries in Zefat are just tourist traps. So, prepare yourself not to be sucked into the touristic hype. You can walk around, enjoy the picturesque area and go into the galleries. But, be firm not to get anything you really don't want to have.

Favorite thing: While in Zefat, take a moment to visit the edge of town on the eastern side. This picture was taken on the new road toward Rosh Pina. Sorry for the poor quality, the day was quite foggy and cloudy, but what you can see in the background is the Sea of Galilee, almost the entire lake is visible from here, only Tiberius is invisible (it would be on the right hand side), but you can see one of the suburbs..
