If you’re looking for a place to get away from rain and cold, Tel-Aviv is the place to be. Located on the sunny Mediterranean, with a population of 400,00, less than half that of Jerusalem, Tel-Aviv is the center of economic and cultural life in Israel. Although founded only 100 years ago by Jewish settlers, it has become known as “the city that never sleeps” because of the vibrant nightclub and restaurant scene.
Tel-Aviv is also known as “the white city” for the many Bauhaus inspired buildings from the 20’s and 30’s, but they share the city with modern high-rise buildings. Visitors will want to visit the markets, juice stalls and beaches, as well as “Old Jaffa” for a taste of what life used to be like before rapid urbanization.
