Tour Old Jaffa, one of the ancient port cities in Israel and the Mediterranean basin. Tel Aviv has grown and spread out of Jaffa to become the city it is today. Jaffa has in recent years been regenerated with the old narrow streets and courtyards becoming a highly popular part of Tel Aviv’s urban tapestry.
Neve Tzedek, the first Jewish neighborhood to be built outside of Jaffa and currently one of the most beautiful and desired locations in Tel Aviv. Good place to try some Israeli Gelato!

On Rothchild you can start the Independence Trail. It follows 10 stops of Tel Aviv’s heritage sites about the history of this great city along the way. The trail ends across the street at Independence Hall, where on May 14, 1948, David Ben-Gurion read aloud the Declaration of Independence as Israel was declared an independent Jewish state.
