About Tel Aviv

In dramatic contrast to the nation's capital, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv isn't a city steeped in its historic past as much as it is a living, breathing urban center, one that boasts burgeoning cultural, culinary, and nightlife scenes. Made up of several starkly different neighbourhoods, Tel Aviv has something to offer for the history-lover and the hip young traveler curious about modern Israeli culture in equal measure.

One of the city's oldest areas – the Ottoman-era Jaffa – is now as old as three millennia, and entices visitors with ancient buildings, biblical artefacts, and a still operational, charming fishing port.

Another neighbourhood to be written into any visitor's route is that of Neve Tzedek – stroll around the charming streets of one of Tel Aviv's oldest parts (the first Jeweish neighbourhood to appear outside the city walls), and sit down for a slow meal at one of the beautiful neighbourhood's many restaurants and cafes.

The famous Bauhaus buildings, Tel Aviv's so-called 'White City', do not occupy an area of their own, but are scattered throughout the entire town. Tel Aviv also enjoys a breezy coastal setting on the Mediterranean, with kilometers of beaches beloved by both locals and tourists.
