There is an old saying in Israel: “In Jerusalem, people pray, in Haifa work and if you are looking for entertainment then go to Tel Aviv”. So, on this page, we will go over some of those entertainment options.
Let’s start with a map of attractions:
Attractions In Tel Aviv
- Azrieli is probably the most recognizable complex in Tel-Aviv’s skyline. In this post, we will be photographing next to Azrieli and then take an elevator to Azrieli Observatory, highest observatory in the Middle East.
- Russian Orthodox Church in Abu Kabir is located in Abu Kabir neighborhood, Southern Part of Tel Aviv. Next to Ofer Cohen and Levanon streets.
- Sarona was a German Templer colony which is now a restored neighborhood with various attractions.
- Ariel Sharon Park, AKA Hiriya, is a former waste dump that was converted to Ecological Park.
- Sunset at Science Walkway next to Tel Aviv University is quite short, but despite that, it offers several nice viewpoints of the city.
- Tel Aviv Promenade is a nice place for a walk, different sports activities or hanging out with kids.
There are many markets in Tel Aviv. I have divided them into two categories. The first one is the “old” Markets In Tel Aviv. These markets exist for many years and they are Carmel Market, Nachlat Binyamin Market, HaTikva Market, and Levinsky Market.
And there are also “new” markets. Markets that were created in recent years. Like: Sarona Market, The Port Market, North Market, and Rothschild Allenby Market. You can find out more at New Markets Of Tel Aviv.
Attractions In Jaffa
- A Day In Jaffa – during this whole day visit, we will be at Jaffa most popular tourist attractions. For example St. Peter’s Church, Zodiac Fountain, Yemenite Art Center, Ramses Gate, Jaffa Alleys, and of course the port.
- Did you know that different events are taking place in Jaffa port? Join us for a walk in Jaffa on a Friday Morning to find out more.
- Do you know where the “Flea Market” comes from? The answer to this question you can find in Jaffa Flea Market post.
Exhibitions, Events, And Concerts
