Tel Aviv District Things to Do

  • Old Jaffa

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Tel Aviv-Yafo Things to Do

    Jaffa is claimed to be the oldest port in the world and was founded by Japhet, the son of biblical Noah. Early Egytian records show that it was conquered by Thutmose III in 1468 BCE. Similarly, archeological excavations in in old Jaffa have uncovered the the name of Ramses II, and was then in control of the Philistines. The Dan tribe settled...

  • Beach

    Tel Aviv-Yafo Things to Do

    The beach is probably the best spot all over the city. It’s a long whitesand beach that spreads all over the coast. The best thing is that there’s a promenade so you can actually walk from rocky south part in Jaffa up to the north to the old port. There are rocky wave breaks inside the water and you can actually choose one of the numerous smaller...

  • HaCarmel Market

    Tel Aviv-Yafo Things to Do

    After a coffee break in Sheinkin street we ended up at the entrance of Carmel Market (Shuk HaCarmel). It’s a large (I guess the biggest in Tel Aviv) lively marketplace that spreads all over Carmel street but also on some side streets but of course if you have already visit other Middle Easte souks you wont get excited but it’s exotic enough for a...

  • Jaffa Flea Market

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Tel Aviv-Yafo Things to Do

    Got a 1950s hoover with a missing part? Fancy an ornate but useable nargilah? Or a Hanukiah? Even hand-made furniture or electrical goods/cameras from dubious sources? Then the flea market in Jaffa is the right place. Set among the narrow streets of workshops and storage centres of end of 19th century Arab quarter, its a warren of junk, bargains...

  • Azrieli Center

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Tel Aviv-Yafo Things to Do

    To me, the Azrieli Centre represents the beginning of the 'new' for Tel Aviv, with its deeply impressive iconic architecture sprouting up besides the freeway. Originally planned to be three buildings - a square, a triangle and a circle - it took many years to see the arrival of the third (triangle) and a stunted version of the original at...

  • Neve Tzedek

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Tel Aviv-Yafo Things to Do

    Neve Tzedek, now a neighborhood in central Tel-Aviv, is older than Tel-Aviv itself: It was founded in 1887 by Jews who decided to move out of the stifling, crowded streets of old Jaffa. They followed the example set by Jerusalem Jews who built neighborhoods outside the Old City walls, bought some land north east of Jaffa and built their houses...

  • Promenade

    Tel Aviv-Yafo Things to Do

    If you have walked the northern part of the promenade, from the Tel-Aviv Harbor to Oepra Tower, and continue to walk down the southern part of promenade towards Jaffa, you are bound to sense the difference. You will hardly see trendy cafes and bars. The view will change, the Old City of Jaffa will be a constant fixture on the horizon as you draw...

  • Rabin Square

    Tel Aviv-Yafo Things to Do

    The large square in front of the City Hall is Rabin square (kikar Rabin). There were only a few people here and there but this is a popular spot for political rallies, demonstrations and parades. We were there a few days before the local elections so at one side of the square there was a huge kiosk (pic 5) dedicated to one of the candidates. The...

  • Sarona German Colony

    Tel Aviv-Yafo Things to Do

    The German Templar sect established several agricultural colonies in Palestine in the 19th century. Sarona was built in 1871, a few kilometers north east of Jaffa. Today this area lies in the center of Tel Aviv. Before and during WW II many in the templar community became staunch Nazi supporters, and in 1948 were finally expelled by the British...

  • Old Harbour

    Tel Aviv-Yafo Things to Do

    The Tel-Aviv Harbor was born out of a dire need to be able to import and export during the Arab Revolt in 1936. Then other harbors took its place: Tel Aviv never had the right natural conditions for a modern harbor. After years of neglect, the old Tel Aviv Harbor area has been developed into one of the "in" entertainment and shopping areas of Tel...

  • Rothschild Boulevard

    Tel Aviv-Yafo Things to Do

    Rothschild Boulevard (Sderot Rotshild) is a 1500meter long residential boulevard. As in Chen boulevard we loved the tree lined central strip that houses a pedestrian and a bike line. This one is a bit more noisy but also interesting as there are numerous kiosks and food joints along the way. We were there in the morning so we saw mainly old people...

  • Bauhaus Architecture

    Tel Aviv-Yafo Things to Do

    Don’t knock those old concrete buildings with cracked facades and sagging balconies that you see all over Tel Aviv. They are actually a treasure trove of 1930s Bauhaus architecture that has no match anywhere in the world. True diamonds in the rough – and Tel Aviv has thousands of them. Thanks to these buildings, the city was declared a UNESCO World...

    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...
