Tel Aviv Travel Guide

Tel Aviv, a city situated on the Mediterranean coast, is a unique cosmopolitan metropolis where new meets old with contemporary architecture, thousands of 1930’s Bahaus buildings clustered together in White City areas, and ancient buildings and streets. Tel Aviv offers a plethora of activities in the night: restaurants, music, bars culture, with yearly festivals and is known as “the city that never stops.”

Museums include Beit Hatfutsot, whose multimedia exhibits display the history of Jewish people worldwide. The Eretz Israel Museum shows the country’s archaeology, crafts and folklore, and features an on-location excavation of 12th-century-B.C. ruins. The Tel Aviv Museum of Art highlights European and Israeli modernism, with notable works by the famous impressionists Pablo Picasso. The city is also known for its accessible beaches and vibrant nightlife ranging from Lilienblum Street’s lounges to Dizengoff Street cafes. Tel Aviv Port’s waterfront promenade is lined with restaurants and shops, and the trendy Neve Tzedek neighborhood has high-end fashion boutiques. The metropolitan area includes the once-separate ancient port town of Jaffa, whose Old City is a maze of galleries, Crusader ruins, flea markets and minarets.
