There's lots to see and experience here, just a short walk from central Tel Aviv. No shortage of good places to eat either... definitely worth a look!

We visited on a Saturday so no market and probably quieter than normal which suited us. Beautiful architecture and well maintained. Enjoyed coming across little discoveries as we went through.

When in Tel Aviv/Yaffo, I always make sure to wonder around Jaffa and take in the sounds, smells and ambiance of this historic area. Shops and restaurants are abundant, with a variety to suit every type of shopper and eater.

It's a 3km walk from Rothschild Boulevard. It's recommended that one walks down to Jaffa. The walk is experiential in terms of feeling the charm of the old world and lovely architectural buildings around. Places to see Jaffa Tower, Jaffa flea market, and Jaffa hill....More

Interesting little town off of the Mediterranean, with a picturesque little port for fishing boats. Nicely signed for historic points of interest. Fun to walk around for a while and close to many of the nice hotels in Tel Aviv that are along the Mediterranean....More

I was going to suggest the Market House too in old Jaffa looks like a very friendly relaxed but lovely hotel - right in the middle of things and fun life in Jaffa - lovely walk along the beach path into Tel Aviv.

If you keep kosher, then the only open restaurants are in the better hotels; If you do not keep kosher then there are lots of places open - in Jaffa we like 'Hazakan v'HaYam' (translates as 'Old Man and the Sea')
