Tel Aviv Israel
UNESCO World Heritage Site

Let's visit Tel Aviv Israel the city that never sleeps.

The visitor that comes for the first time, or those returning after some time, are amazingly surprised with the progress and lively atmosphere of this modern city.

The three Azrieli Towers a symbol of modernism and progress

A huge Metropolitan Area of three million people

The city just celebrated its 100th Anniversary. It was founded in 1909 north of the old city of Jaffa or Joppa in the Bible.

Tel Aviv-Yaffo itself is the second largest city in Israel after Jerusalem. It may be only an hour away but it may as well be a thousand years away culturally, socially and religiously.

The visionaries that first built the city never could have imagined that in just 100 years it will become such a huge and important one.

The name Tel Aviv means “Spring Hill” or “Spring Mound” and is the center of Gush Dan a mole of many cities around it and with no boundaries to differentiate them, it is a metropolitan area with a population of more than three million people.

If what you want is partying on the shores of a real Mediterranean city, Tel Aviv is your place. It is not the capital of Israel as many think, but is the capital of dining, entertainment and nightlife.

In the evening you may sit on an outdoor Paris style café and enjoy your Cappuccino or Café Hafuch as it is called in Israel and at the same time watch the beach-goers, joggers and dog walkers.

It is by far Israel’s financial capital. The Tel Aviv Stock Exchange operates here and it is home to many of the big companies of Israeli and foreign origin.

Most countries sadly do not recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital therefore most or almost all foreign embassies are located in Tel Aviv Israel or its suburbs.

Things to see in Tel Aviv Israel

  • Yaffo

Tel Aviv’s sister city, also known as Old Jaffa, is totally different. Its narrow streets are full of art galleries, tourist stores and fine restaurants.

  • Namal Tel Aviv

The Old Port of Tel Aviv was recently refurbished and is today the center of nightlife and dining in the city. It is just unbelievable.

Arriving to Tel Aviv from the airport or from Jerusalem via the Ayalon Expressway is an unbelievable sight. The city that was a small town just 50 years ago has now a Manhattan like skyline that may be standard for other visitors but for me is just mind-boggling.
