Tel Aviv, the City that Never Stops
Tel Aviv, or Tel Aviv-Yafo, is Israel’s tourist hub and a vibrant seaside resort on the Mediterranean coast. Visitors flock to this metropolis for its golden beaches, historic and cultural heritage, food and nightlife scene, and laid-back lifestyle.
Things to do in Tel Aviv
Admire the Bauhaus architecture and views of the Mediterranean as you walk, jog or bike along the Tel Aviv Promenade, the ideal starting point for exploring the city. This boardwalk by the sea, which stretches from the Tel Aviv port to the marina, offers access to plenty of restaurants, cafés and beaches.
Not far from the port area of the promenade is Yarkon Park, the “Central Park” of Tel Aviv, offering recreational activities, waterslides and outdoor concerts in the heart of nature.

With its picturesque narrow streets and beautifully restored buildings, Neve Tzedek is one of the prettiest and most historic parts of Tel Aviv. This neighbourhood is also known for its trendy cafés, gourmet restaurants and designer boutiques.
Follow the inviting aroma of baked goods, fresh produce and grilled meats to the Carmel Market, or head to Old Jaffa for delicious Middle Eastern street food like hummus and shawarma.
