Tel Aviv
Travel Guide

Experience Israel at its most modern in the thriving coastal city of Tel Aviv, a cosmopolitan cultural hub lined with stunning beaches.

Sunny Tel Aviv is a hive of constant activity. Its sandy beaches welcome visitors to relax along the Mediterranean while its markets come alive with shoppers chatting animatedly with vendors. Stroll around charming ports by day and party in chic clubs by night. Take time in between to visit the city’s numerous museums, art galleries and historic neighborhoods.

The city was founded in 1909, expanding from the much older neighborhood of Jaffa, said to be the biblical town of Joppa. Wander around historic Jaffa Port and Jaffa Flea Market to get a sense of the ancient atmosphere. The Museum of the History of Tel Aviv-Yafo chronicles the city’s story via interactive exhibits. Stop at the impressive St. Peter’s Church for additional biblical sightseeing.

Part of Tel Aviv’s appeal lies in exploring its varied neighborhoods. Chic Florentin offers an artistic ambiance and electric nightlife, while elegant Neve Tzedek is good for boutique shopping experiences. Embrace the noise and color of Carmel Market, one of the city’s biggest markets, just south of the City Center neighborhood.

Hop between the inspiring museums in the city. The Tel Aviv Museum of Art regularly welcomes new exhibitions from Israeli artists and features a permanent Old Masters gallery. Visit Bialik House for poetic inspiration, the Eretz Israel Museum for national history and the Design Museum Holon for eye-catching architecture and exhibits.

Relax after sightseeing in Tel Aviv’s parks and beaches. Edith Wolfson Park and Park HaYarkon feature scenic escapes. Head to the Mediterranean Coast for a day in the sun. Frishman Beach, Gordon Beach and Bograshov Beach run into one another, creating plenty of sandy space along the water.

Fly into Ben Gurion Airport from major global destinations to arrive in Tel Aviv. The city stays warm throughout the year. Visit in spring for the mildest temperatures and most affordable accommodations. As you plan activities remember that everything closes on Shabbat, a day of rest between Friday sunset and Saturday sunset.
