About Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv, the first Hebrew city in modern times, was founded in 1909 and was built on the sand dunes north of the ancient port city of Jaffa.
It is considered the liveliest city in the region - The City that Never Sleeps.

The Sea and the Shore

Tel-Aviv enjoys its location on the very shores of the Mediterranean. The coastline benefits from dozens of kilometers of clean, fine golden sand, supervised beachfront and a vortex of activity all the year-round. However, there is much more to do on the beach than merely sunbathe. The waters of the Mediterranean are shared by swimmers, divers, surfers, windsurfers, boaters. A range of water sports is readily available, including windsurfing and scuba diving for both beginners and experienced. The seashore promenade, which extends along the Tel-Aviv shoreline - the area where most of the city’s major hotels are located - is always alive with strollers, joggers, vendors, musicians and mimes, and lots of fun. The old port of Tel Aviv, at the northern edge of the Tel-Aviv promenade has recently turned into a vivid and flourishing area offering a multitude of restaurants, events and beautiful views. The port is a perfect heaven for Tel-Aviv citizens and visitors enjoying the light breeze in the evening of warm days.

UNESCO World Culture Heritage Site

In July, 2003, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) proclaimed it "The White City", recognizing the unique urban and historical fabric of Tel Aviv-Jaffa as a World Cultural Heritage site. In this proclamation, the world acknowledged the special architectural qualities of the buildings, streets, squares and avenues of Tel Aviv. It is brimming with wonderful examples of Bauhaus architecture.

An Ideal Base for Touring

Tel-Aviv, Israel’s business, commercial and cultural center, is an ideal base for any day trips in Israel. Jerusalem, the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea are just one to a couple of hours away, with regular hourly flights from the Tel-Aviv domestic airport, to Eilat on the Red Sea in south of Israel.

Culture and Night Life

Tel-Aviv boasts a number of fine museums, along with its collection of works by just about every well-known Israeli artist of the 20th century, as well as many leading figures of Modern Art. It is also the home of the world-renowned Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.
Dramatic art, music and dance are also considered part of Tel-Aviv’s artistic forte.
The city is famous for its abundance of restaurants, caf├ęs, and food stalls.
Last but not least, Tel-Aviv offers thriving nightlife for the late-birds. The fully-illuminated Rothschild Boulevard, the waterfront promenade, and the Yarkon river estuary are packed with people even hours after midnight. Bars and clubs will always offer you a drink or a party!
