Ask any local what the one must-see place in Tel Aviv is, and they will likely exclaim Old Jaffa!
With its unique old-world atmosphere, this vibrant neighborhood is entirely different than the rest of celebrated Tel Aviv. Jaffa, also known as Yafo, is one of the most ancient cities in the world. Archaeological digs and early papyrus documents reveal that Jaffa existed as a seaport more than 4000 years ago, the world’s oldest harbor in continual use. Many Biblical stories are connected to Jaffa, including Jonah and the Whale.
