Fronting the Mediterranean and featuring an interesting balance of historic buildings and modern skyscrapers, Tel Aviv is one of Israel’s most exciting cities. It’s the second-largest city in Israel, and the beachfront location of the city center makes Tel Aviv the perfect destination for a vacation in Israel. It’s a short drive from Jerusalem, but with the locals and tourists frolicking on the beach
and crowding the waterfront resorts and bars, it’s easy to see that Tel Aviv is worlds away from Jerusalem.
Tel Aviv is a fairly young city, but it has an impressive collection of Bauhaus buildings that have earned the city a listing on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Most of these historic buildings now serve as hotels and cafes. Most notably, Tel Aviv is home to Old Jaffa
, which is one of the oldest ports in the world, even boasting a few appearances in the Christian Bible.
Of course the city is also home to a lot of exclusive shopping centers, but some of the most eclectic selections can be found on the historic Ha-Yarkon Street
Tel Aviv is served by Ben Gurion International Airport
, and there are many hotels conveniently close to the airport for those who don’t want to trek into the city center
