You will meet our guide outside the reception hall of the port of Ashdod, from where we will head to the Old City of Jaffa, which is today part of Tel Aviv. On the drive to Tel Aviv your tour guide will inform you about Israel’s rich history. The drive will be about one hour, depending on traffic.
We will then board our mini-bus towards the Old City of Jaffo. Jaffo is a mixed Arab Jewish city and is home to one of the most ancient port cities in the world. Jaffo is also mentioned many times in the Bible, and in the 19th century was taken over by the Ottoman Empire and used as a pilgrimage station on the way to Jerusalem. Today, this beautiful city is filled with art galleries, small shops, and magnificent views of the Mediterranean along its white cobblestone streets.
We will walk along Jaffo’s narrow alleys to the Old Port. Then we will make our way to St. Peter’s Church, which was build on top of ruins from Crusaders era.
We will stop for lunch at the Carmel Market, where you will be able to explore and taste the market, with our unique "bite tasting punch card".If you prefer, you will be able to choose from the local restaurants and get a feel for the spirit and vibrancy that Tel Aviv holds.
