EXPLORE TEL AVIV
After three years, we are back where it all started: Tel Aviv. Learn more about our host city and our team's favorite spots.
The Carmel Market (the Shuk Hacarmel) is the largest market, or shuk, in Tel Aviv. It’s a vibrant marketplace where traders sell everything from clothing to spices, and fruit to electronics. Visiting the Carmel Market is a fascinating thing to do in Tel Aviv. The hustle and bustle, vibrant noises, and its reputation as the largest shuk in Tel Aviv all combine to make the Carmel Market a favorite.
DIZENGOFF STREET AREA
Dizengoff Street in central Tel Aviv is one of the city’s most iconic streets. Originally described as the “Champs-Élysées of Tel Aviv”, Dizengoff Street declined after the 1970’s and the opening of Tel Aviv’s most significant shopping mall, the Dizengoff Center in the southern portion of the street. In recent years, however, Dizengoff Street has seen something of a revival, with cafes and restaurants, boutique clothes stores, and numerous design shops opening up. Dizengoff Square with its famous fountain, ‘Fire and Water’ is one of the most iconic sights of Tel Aviv.
Sarona Market is Tel Aviv’s latest culinary center, rivalling the new wave of food markets which have popped up around the world, such as La Boqueria in Barcelona, Chelsea Market in New York City, and Borough Market in London. A sharp contrast to Tel Aviv’s traditional food markets, such as the Carmel or Levinsky Markets, the Sarona Market is all about ‘culinary excellence’ and houses around 100 businesses, from local producers of spices, cheeses, meats, and other goods, to imported delicacies and specialities from around the world.
OLD JAFFA PORT
The Old Jaffa Port is reputed to be one of the oldest ports in the world, notably being the port from which Jonah set off in the famous Biblical story of Jonah and the Whale. Its long and fascinating history as strategic port in the Eastern Mediterranean continued until only recently when new ports were built south of Tel Aviv in Ashdod and north in Haifa, to cater for modern-day shipping methods. Today the port is used largely by local fishermen who continue the centuries old tradition of the area.
NAHALAT BINYAMIN FAIR
In one of the oldest districts in Tel Aviv, adjacent to the Carmel Market, Nahalat Binyamin Street has a wonderful now-not-so-well-known secret, which makes itself known twice a week. Every Tuesday and Friday, the Arts and Crafts Fair brings around 220 artists together as they attempt to sell their works.
Rothschild Boulevard is one of the most important and iconic streets in Tel Aviv. Located in the heart of the White City of Tel Aviv, Rothschild Boulevard is a commercial center. It has major financial institutions lining the street, a cultural center, with the main theater and concert hall of Tel Aviv, a culinary center, with tons of top restaurants, and a leisure center. The walkway in the center of the boulevard is popular with dog walkers, bikers, and some of Tel Aviv’s wealthiest and most beautiful who stop off at the amazing coffee kiosks found in the center of the street.
