This neighbourhood is not touted in any of the Tel Aviv tourist brochures, the way its next door neighbour, Neve Tzedek, is. Few of the 50 to 70-year-old buildings have been renovated, though here, in terms of density, is Tel Aviv's largest concentration of Bauhaus architecture.

A small version of early Chelsea, Manhattan's now overpriced artsy neighborhood. Florentine is headed in that direction, but it's early on. still lots of old empty factories, alongside chic hotels, restaurants, flea markets and art galleries.

The neighborhood is located south of the city which has a new mix young and old, with quite a few places of entertainment day and evening, especially in restaurants and bars

This is the place to go for the trendiest and exciting restaurants in Tel Aviv. From vegetarian, to Persian, to just plain creative food, indulge yourself. You will also find the Levinsky Spice Market in this neighborhood. Filled with exotic spices and dried fruits, entice your senses.

It is fun walking around the neighborhood's streets, looking at the cool graffitis and enjoying the many cafes and restaurants. Also, it is interesting to... More
