Tel Aviv jaffa
Tel Aviv, often called “the city that never stops,” was the first modern Jewish city built in Israel, and is now the country’s economic and cultural center. It is a lively, active city with entertainment, culture, art, festivals, and an active night life.
Tel Aviv is situated on a 14-kilometer-long strip on the Mediterranean seacoast. Hundreds of thousands of workers, visitors, tourists, and partygoers move about the city each day until the early hours of the morning, seeking out the city’s nightclubs, restaurants, and centers of entertainment.
There are several important Christian sites in Old Jaffa such as the Church of Saint Peter, which dates back to the 17th century, the house of Simon the Tanner where Peter had his vision of the non-kosher animals, and the tomb of Tabitha, whose righteous deeds enabled Peter to raise her from the dead. Around Jaffa you will also find the Ottoman clock tower, a vibrant flea market that is always worth visiting, as well as the Ajami neighborhood.
Tel Aviv is Israel’s center for culture and entertainment. The city has more than 20 museums, the most important of which are the Land of Israel (HaAretz) Museum and the Tel Aviv Art Museum.
Tel Aviv is also the national center for night life and entertainment and is filled with night clubs featuring music of all types, dancing, restaurants, pubs, coffee houses, discotheques, movie theaters, auditoriums, and concert halls.
The beachfront of Tel Aviv has bathing beaches and a romantic waterfront promenade.
Vacationers in Tel Aviv can lodge at any of the dozens of hotels scattered throughout the city.
Tel Aviv is also a business and trade center. There are colorful and bustling markets such as the flea market in Jaffa, the Carmel market, the HaTikva Market, and Levinsky market. There are also modern shopping malls such as Dizengoff Center and Azrieli Center, and important business centers for high-tech companies, realtors, as well as the Tel Aviv stock market. All these have made Tel Aviv the business capital of Israel and an international center for conventions, exhibitions, and conferences.
