we spent quite a long time in Jaffa. Walking around the city. We went into Gabrielli and bought a beautiful table cloth. We have been before to buy tallit and table cloths. They were very helpful. If they do not stock the correct size of...More
Lovely view of the Mediterranean Sea from Old Jaffa. When we positioned ourselves at the Gan HaPisga, we were able to see the City of Tel Aviv!
Explore with nice walking shoes and don't forget to sit down and watch the people, enjoy the sea,...More
This neighborhood, partially wit steep hills, is spread out. A guided walk-in tour is recommended. The views of Tel Aviv are spectacular but, for example, the artist’s area is at the far end, the Church dedicated to St Paul (?, or another apostle) is in...More
Fantastic place to visit in TLV. We were lucky enough to stay in Jaffa so we walked around almost everyday.
It’s great to see so many people having a great time in Jaffa, especially young people on electric scooters and bikes!!
Old Jaffa is a must see when in TLV. It’s a place with heart, full of artistic athmosphere. Just go there and get lost, it’s the best way to see it. Old stairs, walls, colorful numbers on houses and a view of the sea someware...More
It was really interesting to wander around the old Jaffa city area. Starting at the old clock tower, one can wander around the old historic twisting alleyways loaded with interesting art shops and cafés here and there. There is such a sense of history in...More
I really recommend reading at least the Wikipedia page for Jaffa before coming. It's incredibly interesting. You can wander through the alleys for hours exploring little shops, historic sites, and museums. If you climb the stairs to the top of the hill, you get an...More

Hands down, I would recommend the Royal Beach Hotel. We found it in walking distance of everything we wanted to see. (We're New Yorkers, though, so we walk a lot.) It's close to Jaffa and the Harcamel Market (by anyone's... More
Hands down, I would recommend the Royal Beach Hotel. We found it in walking distance of everything we wanted to see. (We're New Yorkers, though, so we walk a lot.) It's close to Jaffa and the Harcamel Market (by anyone's standards, I think). When we return to Tel Aviv, we'll stay there again. I reviewed this hotel on Trip Advisor, of you want to check it out. (I can't add the link in this answer.) And it's close to some amazing restaurants: Onza, Night Kitchen, and Benedict (for breakfast; I'd recommend them in that order. You won't be disappointed!
I like the Atlas Boutique Hotel Chain, which has several properties in Tel Aviv and a newish one in Jaffa - THE MARKET HOUSE - smart, stylish, good food for breakfast, great location for walking both in Jaffa and along the... More
I like the Atlas Boutique Hotel Chain, which has several properties in Tel Aviv and a newish one in Jaffa - THE MARKET HOUSE - smart, stylish, good food for breakfast, great location for walking both in Jaffa and along the boardwalk to and in Tel Aviv!
Not far (walking towards Tel Aviv) is the Techana - the old train station which has turned into a trendy area of restaurants, cafes, shops, events.
Go into Old Yafo (ancient Jaffa) and down to the marina and take a ferry ride from there to Tel Aviv Port and back again.
And be sure to look for the shop Adina Plastlina (in Old Yafo) as she makes very interesting jewelry and other items and features a room whose excavation revealed finds from ancient Jaffa!.
Best local places to eat while you are walking around Jaffa include Dr. Shakshuka on Beit Eshel St. and Abouelafia Bakery on Yefet Street.
Speaking of central and elegant and fun, check out THE BROWN HOTEL on Kalisher Street in Tel Aviv - close to Rothschild Blvd. where you can stroll along to see Bauhaus Architecture and visit Independence Hall to learn more about the proclamation of Israel's independence in 1948. Or go the other way to famous Carmel Market and Nahalat Binyamin arts & crafts area. Not far is Sheinkin Street where you meet long-time Tel Aviv residents and listen to stories of the "old days" of early Tel Aviv.

If you keep kosher, then the only open restaurants are in the better hotels; If you do not keep kosher then there are lots of places open - in Jaffa we like 'Hazakan v'HaYam' (translates as 'Old Man and the Sea')
