From its history to its harbors, Tel Aviv is a bustling, vibrant city with unexpected sights and sounds at every turn. With near-perfect weather- sunny skies most year, Tel Aviv is the perfect city for any type of traveler. The culinary and restaurant scene is internationally acclaimed, the beaches expansive, and the culture and history wide-ranging. Complete with Bauhaus architecture, a globally renowned clubbing scene, and with the ever-impressive Jaffa nearby, it is the perfect city for any interests, and guests of all ages.
Tel Aviv is full of historical sites integral to the history of both modern and ancient Israel. Independence Hall is a must-see, because it served as the location where David Ben-Gurion, the first prime minister of Israel, established the State of Israel amongst other community leaders. This event made international headlines, and opened a new chapter of history for the Middle East, and the Jewish people. Another popular destination is Beit Hatfutsot, or the Museum of the Jewish People. This unique institution tells the continuing and vibrant narrative of the Jewish people. Beit Hatfutsot conveys the fascinating story of the Jewish people and of Jewish culture and religion.
Visitors can take a walking tour through Jaffa, an ancient port city within walking distance of Tel Aviv’s beaches. Jaffa is truly a melting pot within Israel, with Jewish and Arab people living and working in harmony side by side. Jaffa is home to some of the most delightful restaurants in the Tel Aviv area, as well as beautiful sights and bakeries serving traditional Arab desserts. The Jaffa Flea Market is always filled with great items, and the smells, sights, and sounds of the market are a perfect representation of the people living in this ancient city. The winding alleyways and narrow streets are lined with art galleries and craft studios, in addition to family-owned restaurants for authentic middle-eastern food.
Visitors can also explore the downtown streets of Tel Aviv for shopping, nightlife, and critically acclaimed restaurants. Rothschild Boulevard is one of the most iconic streets, located in the heart of Tel Aviv. It is a business centre, with major banks and companies lining the street, a centre for culture, a short walk from the official theatre and concert hall of Tel Aviv. The street also serves as a culinary haven, with dozens of top restaurants spanning its length, and the centre of social life in the city, popular with dog walkers, bikers, and locals. Beautiful coffee shops, famed frozen yogurt destinations and more are located on Rothschild. Another must-see, Dizengoff Street has once again appeared as one of the most vibrant avenues, not far from the beaches. With designer clothing stores and historical museums, to flashy nightlife and a wide variety of restaurants, there is so much to see on this four kilometre stretch.
