Tel Aviv City Reviews

  • 100%



    The florentine district is amazing! it looks shabby but it's one of the most interesting neighbourhoods of Tel Aviv. Many bars and restaurants that are really nice. There is a lot of street art which gives the neighbourhood a special vibe. I definitely recommend going there.

    Insider Tip:Stay at Florentine Hostel.

    Something for Everyone

    The city has a great pulse and is vibrant at all times. Great food, lots to see and do: Old Yafo, old port, beach, bars, clubs, restaurants, shopping, etc.). My favourite was walking along the beach boardwalk during the day. Rothschild Blvd. was also a highlight with many nice restaurants and cafes with patios for relaxing and people watching. It is lively even in the evening with street performances and music. Walk along Dizengoff for smaller boutique stores.

    Insider Tip:If you don't want to pay premium prices for a coffee along Rothschild Blvd, McDonald's has an equally nice patio and a fantastic espresso milkshake, not to mention free WiFi! Speaking of WiFi, there are free wifi spots all over the city.

    Tel Aviv

    Tel Aviv has a laid back feel to it but is full of life. Jaffa and Florentin are two amazing parts of the city that are a must see.

    Insider Tip:Watch your bag at the Carmel market, especially at its peak on Friday afternoon. Thieves will steal from you if you are not paying attention

    Tel Aviv - fine for a couple of days, but not much more

    Tel Aviv is a very cosmopolitan city - lots of bars and restaurants, cafes and shops. The restaurants and bars are really cool and quirky. If this (and the high life) is what you're after than this is the place for you. People are friendly and the weather's great - it's pretty cool hanging out on the beach watching kite surfers. If you're looking for an inexpensive holiday in a place steeped in diverse culture and history: then probably give this a miss!

    Insider Tip:Ask for the famous soup restaurant (the name I forget) - it's brilliant

    Two English girls in Tel Aviv

    We felt really safe during our stay at a rented apartment. Our hosts were kind enough to offer some interesting places to see and we were lucky enough to locate these.

    Insider Tip:Always ask the locals, waitresses, bar staff ETc as they will always recommend the best.
