This neighbourhood is not touted in any of the Tel Aviv tourist brochures, the way its next door neighbour, Neve Tzedek, is. Few of the 50 to 70-year-old buildings have been renovated, though here, in terms of density, is Tel Aviv's largest concentration of Bauhaus architecture.

The neighborhood is slowly changing, but still rough around the edges. There are small, interested places scattered throughout, including a Mexican place with tequila and mezcal, and a milkshake bar.

So keep your eyes open... You can start your day at levinsky market, progress to florentin street and washington... More

The flip side of being a "cool" neighborhood full of yuppies on a budget is that everyone has a dog. The problem here is that there exists some kind of cultural regression when it comes to cleaning up after your canine. It us the dirtiest area of the city, and you need to literally walk with your eyes on the... More

For a taste of the exotic, walk through Florentine. Cafes, shops with everything from lighting, purses, Clothing to the Levantine market.. The tastes of diverse cuisines (like Georgian walnuts wrapped in prssed grape), delectable tea mixtures, pastiries) will tease you.

Even if you are not a big fan of street art, Florentine is a place that shouldn't be missed out. Just wander around the narrow streets and admire the various artists' works, many of them international. Dede has plenty of art here and so does Sened. I wouldn't recommend joining a tour, it's much more fun doing it alone. Make... More

A must see in the historical Florentine section of Tel Aviv. The Meir Stern Museum is a little and precious museum housing fascinating historical data and videos of Israel's preindependence years. This museum was the last refuge of the legendary Yair and you can sees a true re-enactment of the Stern gang mythical leader's murder by the British. This museum... More

Known as the current 'Hipster' neighborhood, lots of dudes are sporting Herzl beards. Suddenly the most cynical folk look like they are copying the looks of trend setting Zionists from the 19th century.

Took a graffiti tour which I highly recommend. We learned so much about the neighborhood through the lens of the graffiti art which is EVERYWHERE. It includes professional photo of you. Myisraelphotos.com
