Jaffa is a charming area with several interesting sights, such as the Napoleon cannons, flea market, old synagogue, port area and great viewers of the city. It is a great walk along the beach. If you are in Tel Aviv, Jaffa should be a priority.

Make sure to make the time to spend an entire day or two walking around. From the old market/streets up to the tower we had a great experience. Beautiful views, so slow down and enjoy them. Tons of great places to eat. Definitely worth visiting.

You can but just be aware of the cut off time on a Friday which is around 1400. Saturday was not a problem to go visit and see everything.
