Tel Aviv

Welcome to Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv, with its golden beaches and lively cosmopolitan outlook is Israel’s most modern metropolis. Most visitors land here to soak up the sun, shop-until-they-drop in cutesy boutiques, and enjoy some serious foodie action at the city’s renowned café and restaurant scene. The beach may be the major highlight, but Tel Aviv is more than its famous strip of sand. Nicknamed “The White City,” the town was awarded UNESCO World Heritage Status in 2003 in recognition of its multitude of fine examples of Bauhaus architecture (an early 20th-century modernist style of building). The city itself is full of small museums and funky art galleries that provide excellent sightseeing opportunities. While Jaffa, just to the south, is a gorgeously well-preserved old city with an old port that has been in use for thousands of years and is now revitalized with restaurants and cafés.

Top Tel Aviv Attractions

Tel Aviv is defined by its coastal position. The beaches attract tourists and locals alike. On weekends Tel Aviv’s strips of sand are crowded with sun-worshippers, posers, partiers, and people just chilling out. The most popular sandy stretches are centrally-located Gordon Beach, Frishman Beach, and Banana Beach where you’ll find excellent facilities such as fresh-water showers, sun loungers for rent, and cafés.

A leading light in Israel’s contemporary art scene, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art contains works by Degas, Monet, Van Gogh, Henry Moore, Picasso, Jackson Pollock and the world’s largest collection of work by Israeli artists. The ultra-modern building with its sophisticated architecture houses and highlights the artworks perfectly. As well as the permanent collection, the museum hosts regular temporary exhibits and other events.

Tel Aviv’s old port area (known as Namal) has been slickly rejuvenated and is now a hip waterfront hang-out strip full of shops and cafés. The boardwalk here is a favorite for promenading youngsters, while families flock to the area on weekends. The port area is also home to an excellent indoor market.

Little Bialik Street is home to three historical houses that will interest history and culture lovers. The House of artist Reuven Rubin is now a museum dedicated to his work, full of paintings as well as old photographs of Tel Aviv. Further along the street, Bialik House used to be the residence of poet, Chaim Nachman Bialik, and is now a tribute to his life and works. Next door is Tel Aviv’s original town hall, now known as Beit Ha’ir. It contains displays documenting Tel Aviv’s history.
