Tel Aviv is an amazing city: the city that never sleeps, the Miami of the Middle East, is one of those places where you “make life”, as Israelis would put it!
Living in Jerusalem, we visited Tel Aviv quite often. I stayed in the city for three months a couple of years ago and Matteo came to visit, so we actually know most of the places and sites, but sometimes it’s nice to enjoy some time as a tourist. Moreover in the last few years Tel Aviv has changed a lot: new skyscrapers define its outline, a lot of hipster live the city and many more Europeans savor its beaches.
Tel Aviv has a lot to offer: history, nightlife, sea, good weather, a lot of humidity (imagine my hair!). But this time we are sharing the best things to do outdoors, since this is the main characteristic of the city and of its inhabitants.
Spend a Saturday at the beach, surrounded by Telavivians playing Matkot. Take a ride on a Friday morning on the city Tayelet (Promenade) with some rented bikes and get to Jaffa: visit the market there and have lunch at the renovated Jaffa port.
Get lost in the alleys of the Carmel Market and discover the beautiful neighborhoods of Neve Tzedek. Walk on Rothschild Boulevard and observe the typical Telavivian Bauhaus homes now enclosed in modern iron-and-glass buildings.
Stroll towards the North, through Ibn Gabirol Street, Rabin Square, Dizengoff Centre, and enjoy a bit of green at the new ha-Yarkon Park.
We don’t want to unveil you too many things about Tel Aviv, since it’s much better to discover it first-hand, so just take a little holiday there next time!
