JAFFA & TEL AVIV
This fascinating tour to Jaffa and Tel Aviv combines two historical cities that blend modern architecture with ancient history. The tour starts in Jaffa, a 4000-year-old city with a port that dates back to the Phoenicians. We then head for the hub-hub of bustling Tel Aviv, the fashionable center of Israel, labeled as the ‘Non-stop city.’
Jaffa has hundreds of legends and mysteries to reveal. It was in the ancient port on the south of the city that the brow-raising tale of Jonah and the Whale is said to have taken place. The Philistines are also thought to have brought the Ark of the Covenant here.
After exploring the archaeological ruins of Jaffa, your experienced guide will lead you through the streets of buzzing Tel Aviv. Here you can adore the famous Bauhaus architecture around the White City quarter and along Rothschild Boulevard. You will also have the opportunity to take snapshots of the Independence Hall where the state of Israel was declared.
The Artistic Side of Tel Aviv
As you stroll through the streets of Tel Aviv, you have plenty of opportunities to capture the Bauhaus and Art Deco buildings on camera. We also pay a visit to the lively Carmel market where you will have the opportunity to peruse the artsy stalls and barter with the locals.
If you’ve never been to Israel, you will not want to miss this opportunity. Join our specialist guide and discover all the hidden gems and rich history this part of the world has to offer.
