Tel Aviv, meaning “hill of spring” in Hebrew, is a modern metropolis on Israel’s Mediterranean coast. This global city is home to many foreign embassies and is a major center of culture and entertainment. It is divided into nine districts—the oldest of which is Jaffa, the ancient port city out of which Tel Aviv grew. Start the day with a breakfast of shakshuka (eggs cooked in tomato sauce) before exploring the many museums or catching a performance by world-renowned musicians. On especially hot days, cool off with a local specialty of halva ice cream topped with date syrup and pistachios. You may also want to rest up as Tel Aviv is also known as the “24-hour city,” with its sprawl of beaches and abundant nightlife.

Destination Highlights

  • Carmel Market

    Locally known as Shuk ha-Carmel, this vibrant marketplace sells everything from spices and fresh fruit to clothes. Food tours allow visitors to sample from every vendor. Be sure to stop by on Thursday or Friday as the market closes on Saturday.

  • Port of Jaffa

    Explore the winding alleyways and stone buildings of the ancient city of Jaffa. Parts of the old port are still being excavated, but there is plenty to do beyond a history tour. The flea market is full of endless stalls offering jewelry, secondhand clothes, and many other eclectic goods.

  • The White City

    This UNESCO World Heritage Site houses the world’s largest collection of buildings in the Bauhaus style. The legacy of Jewish architects from the 1920s and 30s lives on in these white and asymmetric structures around the city center. Modern kiosks and boutiques thrive in the shade of these historic buildings.



  • Forecasting Your Tel Aviv Vacation

    Due to its proximity to the Mediterranean Sea, Tel Aviv summers are long and warm, and winters are cool and clear. Temperatures are steadily in the 80s and 90s throughout the year, but can reach the mid-30s in the winter months. May is typically the warmest month while January is the coldest. There is more rainfall in the winter than the summer, but it is generally very little regardless of season.
