You're Going to Love Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv is a modern metropolitan area that absorbed the older port city of Yafo. This international city is a financial, technological, and tourist hub with a unique and vibrant atmosphere.

While the northern portion of the city is more chic and suburban, the southern portion of the city has retained all the charms of the old port of Yafo. Most of the city's tourist attractions are located in the Center area.

Tel Aviv is a city that will surprise you with its busy street markets, modern nightlife, and Bauhaus architecture. This is the only place in the world where you can see one of the oldest Mediterranean ports right next to modern dining and shopping options.
