Jaffa Old City should be near the top of any must see list when in Tel Aviv. This is the historic section of the city, set on the Mediterranean coastline and stretching to the top of high bluff above the waters. While taking in the history of the city, you'll wander ancient alleyways, markets and shopping streets. There are also some amazing fresh juice stands scattered throughout Jaffa that are worth a try.

Really nice old town with lots of history and culture. It could be better kept though. There are some parts that are left to ruin which is sad.

Most historical and interesting part of Tel Aviv. Located at the south end of Tel Aviv city, Old Jaffa was an old port city.

Unmissable place to visit in Tel Aviv - Jaffa is actually a wholly different city, but it can be easily reached via a walk on the waterfront. Old Jaffa is packed with history, interesting sights, art galleries, lovely shops and restaurants. The view of Tel Aviv from the hill is spectacular.

Beautiful and historic area to take a stroll around, with the ocean on one side and old architecture on the other. There are a ton of little shops and restaurants in the area as well. A must see when in Tel Aviv.

Ancient city in Jaffa (יפו believed to be named after Noah's son, Japhet) also where diverse religions unite! There is also artists' colony.

This historic city has turned into a fantastic art center. You'll find cute shops selling ceramics, paintings and more along the narrow, winding streets.

Old Jaffa is a beautiful historic center, full of art and charm. The apartments looking out over the water are stunning and you can walk the maze of stone streets for hours.

A wonderful place to explore with the kids with historic significance. A whole host of historic greats was connected with this tiny port city:Jonah, King Solomon, King David, Alexander the Great, St Peter, the Ottomans and Napoleon. Walk up and down the cobbled stone steps and be rewarded with the view of the mediterranean sea, as you peep out of arches and windows. Today the area houses art studios, eating places and luxury apartments, amongst places of worship that still withstand the tide of change.

Jafa is an ancient port city.
Walking around ancient Jafa is a great way to experience the past.
Napoleon also "visited" the area, Jafa is filled with history!
Don't miss it
