"Tel-Aviv & Yaffo, Israel's 24hr City" Tel Aviv-Yafo by Martin_S.

Tel Aviv-Yafo Travel Guide: 1,197 reviews and 2,900 photos

This is the Eden picture theatre, the first in Tel-Aviv. Today it is closed, but if you were going out on the town 50 years ago and wanted a movie, THIS was it...

Zohara and I took time out from our walk around the Neve Tzedek area of Tel-Aviv and decided to try a new restaurant called NG (that is for the names of two of the three owners, Nir and Giora, Giora's wife said that she was represented through her husband...) The meal was very tasty and of a reasonable price and also well presented. The atmosphere of the place itself was "old Tel-Aviv" from maybe 40-50 years ago with plesant background music. We recommend taking a stop in here.

And if you are in Tel-Aviv you should not miss the "little brother" Yaffo. Once these were two seperate cities, the ancient city of Yaffo and then the new city of Tel-Aviv, established only in the 20th century, taking over, encompassing and incorporating Yaffo into its environs. This is how it looks from the beach in Tel-Aviv, you can take a nice walk there along the beach.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Metropoltian, cosmopolitan, international, a dynamic city.
  • Cons:Crowded, busy, noisy, polluted, expensive.....a big city in other words !!!
  • In a nutshell:If you are from a big city, you will feel right at home.

    The old buildings were fascinating...I really liked how people added small porches to capture some private space..hope they're sturdy!!
