Jaffa port harbor are old town are impressive. Seaside vibe in very cool with ancient re-constructed sights. Sun set is unbelievable. Whole scene is worth walking up hills (ha, ha) but worth it. Bring water, wear comfortable shoes.

Worth a walk from Tel Aviv to Old Jaffa. Part traditional souk and part hipster hang out. Nice restaurants and interesting shops are everywhere. Very lively late into the night even though many of the shops close earlier.

We spent the whole day walking around Jaffa, beaches and eating in the beach bars. All people serving in shops and cafes certainly uderstand the spirit of service. Certainly recommended as a healthy place to have some downtime.
