Tel Aviv and Central Israel
  • South is Jaffa, Tel Aviv’s “older sister” and where its story began. Jaffa boasts bountiful biblical history, along with charming alleys, antiquities, quiet churches and a picturesque and recently restored fishing port. Not to miss is the Ottoman clock tower and the vibrant flea market, especially on Fridays.

  • This was the first railway line between Little Asia and Egypt and the first means of transportation to replace the camel as the mode of transport for heavy loads taken over long distances. Today, The Tachana (“Station”) complex is one of the city's most charming entertainment spots.

  • Neve Tzedek was the first neighborhood built in the “new” city of Tel Aviv. After years of neglection and with streets and buildings crumbling away, the place recaptured its former prestige, and has become a stylish yuppie residence with plenty of restaurants, galleries and designer shops.

  • Tel Aviv's best known open-air shopping area is the Carmel Market, the place to bask in atmosphere while you buy the fixings for a picnic lunch at the beach, just a few blocks away, or stock up on fruit for your hotel room.

  • Nachalat Binyamin arts and crafts fair is the first and biggest of its kind in Israel, a very special experience. It is full of very special and unique handmade creations and designs, beautiful buildings, coffee shops and street performances and live music.

  • Tel Aviv is the largest open-air Bauhaus museum in the world, known as the “White City” and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and Rothschild Blvd is probably the most beautiful.

  • This is the historic hall in which the State of Israel was declared.
    Most of the exhibited items are originals, while others were meticulously reconstructed. The names of the public figures who attended the ceremony are inscribed on the dignitaries’ stage and on the chairs.

  • The Trumpeldor Cemetery is in a way a monument to countless life stories- some of which are quite intriguing- which are intertwined with the local history, and here lie some of the country’s national icons, such as: the Zionist leaders Arlozorof, Sheinkin and Nordau; the first mayor of Tel Aviv Meir Dizengof; the founder of Cultural Zionism Ahad Ha'am; Israel's national poet Hayim Nahman Bialik; and other signers of the Israeli Declaration of Independence, people of the Zionist movement, artists and more.

  • A world of entertainment and leisure awaits along the breathtaking shoreline, including shows, culture, art exhibitions, shopping at leading stores, weekend markets and a culinary experience brought to you by the best restaurants and chefs that Tel Aviv has to offer – all against the backdrop of the city’s historic port.

  • Neot Kedumim is a biblical landscape reserve. This unique recreation of the physical setting of the Bible in all its depth and detail allows visitors to see life as it was lived by our ancestors 3,000 years ago. More than a "garden" showing various plants, Neot Kedumim embodies the panorama and power of the landscapes which shaped the values of the Bible and provided the rich vocabulary for expressing those values.
