Top things to do in Tel Aviv in 2019

Tel Aviv is small but packed with a rich history, dazzling architecture, pristine beaches and vibrant nightlife. Whatever piques your interest, here are the top things to do in Tel Aviv that you shouldn’t miss.

1. A stroll down Rothschild Boulevard

Wander down Tel Aviv’s beautiful tree-lined boulevard and embrace the classic Bauhaus architecture. With everything from charming cafes and lively late night clubs to historical museums and endless places to sit and relax, Rothschild Boulevard is probably the most iconic street in Tel Aviv. The lively boulevard is lined with Bauhaus Buildings, which are part of the White City UNESCO World Heritage Site. Many of these have been restored and now house the offices of financial institutions, creative firms, restaurants, and luxury residences.

2. Explore Neve Tzedek

Considered to be one of Tel Aviv’s prettiest districts, Neve Tzedek attracts legions of walking visitors thanks to its dazzling architecture, cultural legacy and village-like atmosphere. Here, the peace and quiet of the narrow streets has the bonus of being a real destination for shopping, eating out and enjoying the craftsmanship and creativity of the neighborhood’s artists. Certainly a place to escape the hectic pace of central Tel Aviv and stroll around on a lazy afternoon.

3. Visit the Old City of Jaffa

Famous for its association with the biblical stories, the Old City of Jaffa or Yafo (as it’s known in Hebrew) is an ancient port city with an amazingly rich history, perched at the southern end of the Tel Aviv shoreline. The Old City is home to winding alleys filled with mosques and churches, crafts shops, amazing little galleries, and cute little eateries. The list of things to do is never ending. And whereas Tel Aviv offers a somewhat surprising European flavor, there’s no mistaking the Middle East atmosphere in Old Jaffa. Head to the port for some fresh fish, or get lost in Jaffa’s flea market.


4. Go to the beach

Defeating all odds of a small city, Tel Aviv has loads of awesome and very different beaches. Each one has its own personality and attracts different crowds. If you are looking for a sophisticated beach check out Charles Clore beach. For crowded beaches with great vibes check out the Gordon and Bograshov beaches. And if you want to see the fittest, tannest guys in the tightest bathing suits head to Hilton beach, Israel’s unofficial ‘gay beach.

5. A Stroll around Carmel Market

Buzzing with middle-eastern vibe, Carmel Market is Tel Aviv’s largest and busiest market. With dozens of stalls selling fresh produce, spices, souvenirs and clothes you can take in all the sights, sounds and smells the Carmel Market has to offer while hunting for the cheapest bargain. The market is especially busy on Fridays, so be sure to get there early in the morning for your Shabbat fixings.

6. Visit Tel Aviv Museum of Art

Gracing the walls of this impressive gallery are Israel’s most comprehensive collections of modern, contemporary, and Israeli art. There’s a huge amount to see here including the old masters, diverse temporary exhibitions, displays of photography, design & architecture, a performance hall, and a calming sculpture garden to wander around or relax in. The modern ‘envelope’ building by American architect Preston Scott Cohen is one of many reasons to visit Tel Aviv Museum of Art located on the eastern edge of the city centre.

7. Nightlife at the Great Synagogue

The hippest nightlife spot in Tel Aviv has evolved in the shadows of the Great Synagogue on Allenby Street. There some bars around the historical structure, and all of them are great. Opposite the Great Synagogue is Port Sa’id a vibrant, buzzing restaurant and bar where owner and celebrity chef Eyal Shani serves up seemingly plain but absolutely delicious dishes.
