Modern Tel Aviv - Street Art and Bauhaus Tour
Discover the modern face of Israel in Tel Aviv, one of the most exciting cities in the Middle East!
History meets modernity in Tel Aviv, one of the Middle East’s most exciting cities. While this might be one of the oldest inhabited places in the world, today it’s also one of the most progressive, as you’ll discover on this 2-hour walking tour.
One of the oldest inhabited places on Earth
The Tel Aviv free walking tour meets daily by the Clock Tower in Old Jaffa, and takes you directly into the old town. Jaffa has been destroyed and rebuilt dozens of times over the past millennia, as you’ll discover as you stroll through the Zodiac Alleys, and past the iconic Jama al Bahr Sea Mosque, and as you look out to Andromeda’s Rock, where Andromeda was to be sacrificed to the sea monster in Greek mythology.
Major events of the 20th century
While Tel Aviv might have thousands of years of human history, some of the world’s most significant events took place there within in the past 100 years. See where Nazi Adolf Eichmann was imprisoned as he awaited trial, learn about the Jaffa Riots which started in the city before spreading through the country, and hear about the British Mandate and Tel Aviv’s inclusion in the proposed Jewish state.
A modern, lively city
"Jerusalem prays and Tel Aviv plays” is a quote you might come across while visiting Israel, and on the Old Jaffa walking tour, you’ll understand why. While you will see major Old Jaffa landmarks like the Jaffa Lighthouse, the Lion Temple and St Peter’s Church, your expert licensed guide will also be happy to tell you about modern life in Tel Aviv, and to give you recommendations for restaurants, bars and the best places to swim at the beach.
