When most peo­ple think of Israel, they pic­ture the many holy sites, Jerusalem of Gold, a war-torn coun­try, the desert, and his­tor­i­cal ruins. City Guide Tel Aviv gives us a new slant on Israeli life in a beau­ti­ful­ly pho­tographed, glossy guide to the vibrant, cos­mopoli­tan, Mediter­ranean city. It describes muse­ums and gal­leries, gourmet restau­rants and the café cul­ture, clubs and nightlife, bou­tiques and fash­ion and bed & break­fasts! Many tours spend only a day in Tel Aviv but this book will give you insid­er tips on cul­tur­al and hip places in Israel’s sec­ond largest city so that you’ll want to spend an entire vaca­tion there. While Jaf­fa is one of the world’s old­est port cities, Tel Aviv is Israel’s newest and City Guide is divid­ed into six areas includ­ing Jaf­fa with maps and num­bered loca­tions. I’ve vis­it­ed Tel Aviv at least ten times and have found many excit­ing places in this guide that I hope to check out next time.
