I loved walking in and around JAFFA. The artisan shops were wonderful, the sea is around every corner and the history of the whole place is awe inspiring. It was a treat to be able to spend the day in Jaffa and Tel Aviv.

I will not try to compete with the endless reviews over centuries of this unique place, nor with the beautiful songs written about old Jaffa (yafo). Because I am not so talented and a bit biased. Yafo is living, changing with every hour of the day and season. An inspiring spiritual nest for talented world class artists, wonderful galleries, jewelry... More

People talk about carmel market. I personally enjoy this market much much better. They have a selection of everything. They have a flea market a clothes, food, trinkets, furniture you can find here. So many things buried in the piles of things being sold. I heard some europeans talking about a found tricket here that ended up being worth a... More

Jaffa is a fabulous place. Right along the water, there are many picturesque landmarks for you to use your camera on. The restaurants are great and plentiful, as well as the bars scene. Take a stroll along the water and walk up the steps of Jaffa to get an old-time feel for the place. End up at the Peak Garden... More

It is a very quiet place next to the Mediterranean sea. St Peter church is must visit place. A very beautiful church! The park next to it has a view of downtown Tel Aviv and one can relax with the sea breeze.

Always love visiting Old Jaffa - for the restaurants, galleries and shops, as well as for just waling around the ancient streets.
