Florentin is one of those places. It's not part of any tourist tour. It's not highlighted in any guide books. But to get a feel of the everyday in Tel aviv, Florentin is a must. It's the light industrial area, a mix of funriture, vehicle maintenance and 'schmatters' (rag trade), of Tel Aviv, to the east (ie away from the sea) of Neve Tzedek.
Walk the narrow streets around Vital - workshops open on to the street, new furniture piled high in alleyways, the sound of drills, hammering (and cursing LOL) rent the air. Mixed into all this are some of the best cafes and bars in the city (many of the cafes mainly open only during the day), designer furnishings, Italian light importers, the odd synagogue and high density, low-rise apartment blocks. It has a great atmosphere and so worth wondering round.
Florentin is a neighborhood in Tel Aviv that was built in 1927 by a family from greece.
You can find here a lot of small businesses and alot of young people that came here because of the low rent but also a lot of foreign workers.
To my opinion this is an ugly neighborhood but still , very unique.
