Tel Aviv City Reviews

  • 50%


    It felt a lot like California. Had a lot of sites and things to do. Parking was terrible and really gave me a headache. Not sure if I would rent a car again if I did it over but it was nice having one at times. Very costly. Enjoy the sites. You don't need my review to tell you it has a lot of things you want to see. June felt perfect for the weather, it was really nice.

    amazing city of partying, culture and acceptance

    great city for those interested in music, arts, drinking, meeting people from around the world, the beach and more. go on a tuesday or a friday to nachalat bin yamina (a great art market) or shuk ha carmel for great bargains and cheap foodies!

    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
