  Dizengoff Square -- does this look pedestrianized?
by RhineRoll
 
 

Favorite thing: Dizengoff Square certainly is one of Tel Aviv's most distinctive squares. All the guides will tell you that it is pedestrianized -- I have found this to be a bit misleading. Truth is, there are streets from all directions and especially Dizengoff Street bisects the square. With the red-white painted curbs it looks more like the Monaco F1 racecourse than a pedestrianized spot!!!!

The pedestrian element consists of several ramps meeting on the top of Dizengoff Street creating a pretty large and wide overpass. The ramps are quite steep, it is impossible for wheelchair users to stroll towards the fountain that marks the central section of the overpass. Therefore, as a wheelchair user, don't be tricked into thinking this might be a very accessible spot. It's not, it's an obstacle!

Having said that, if you need a hand to give you a push up the ramps, I don't think you'll ever have to wait very long for somebody to offer help. Israelis are very friendly and helpful and are likely to go out of their way to help you up the ramps.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
