One of Tel-Aviv’s nicknames is ‘The City that rose from the Sand’. This young 111 year old city is Israel’s cultural and economic engine. The actual historic old City is Jaffa, one of the world’s oldest ports and a very colorful old town.
On this day we’ll visit the two cities that united in 1948 and today show us the Israeli scene at its best (‘the city that never stops’) with co-existing communities, cool people and great food.
The day will start at the old clock tower of Jaffa, and from there we will walk in the old city of Jaffa with Israel’s oldest port, Zion’s gate, the artist colony and the colorful flea market of Jaffa, where we’ll have an amazing tasting tour for lunch (optional). We will hear the legends and myths that took place in Jaffa thousands of years ago and are still affecting our lives today.
From there a short drive will take us to Rothchild Blvd Tel Aviv, where the first Hebrew city and the Jewish state were established. We will also visit the Hall of Independence, the first school, the first kiosk and Tel Aviv’s international architecture, ‘The White City’- UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Another recommended option is to add a Jewish -Arab aspect by meeting a few inspirational people from various social organizations.
