Description
Jaffa became part of the Tel Aviv Municipality in 1950. It is a mixed area where it is possible to walk down the street and hear the Muslim call to prayer in Arabic, shop keepers yelling in Hebrew or friends speaking in Russian.

Associated with the biblical stories of Jonah, Saint Peter and Solomon, Jaffa has a long history dating back to the Bronze Age when it was first used as a port.Also Napoleon conquered the city.



Today, this area is known for its archaeological ruins, a stunning view of the Mediterranean Sea. We will walk through the narrow alleyways in the heart of the artist colony. We will pass by mosques and churches and the old city walls on our way to the port. In the past few years, the port has under gone major restorations to accommodate numerous cafes, exquisite seafood restaurants, an indoor market and hangars filled with contemporary art exhibits.

A short distance from the famous Clock Tower, Jaffa’s flea market sells everything imaginable. Just name a price and be ready to haggle. Take in the sweet aroma of nargileh, as shop keepers pass the time by playing backgammon. Indulge in some local treats such as a glass of Turkish coffee, or a Malabi (custard with rose water).
