Lay of the Land

Jaffa: This mixed Arab-Jewish area is known for its Flea Market, historic city (Old Jaffa), and the restored port lined with open-air restaurants.

Neve Tzedek: Tel Aviv’s first neighborhood was established in 1887 and is filled with Eclectic-Era and Bauhaus buildings. Along the main artery, Shabazi Street, you’ll find independent fashion boutiques and tony cafés.

Noga: Design ateliers, art galleries, and loftlike apartments now occupy the renovated warehouses and Arabesque tenements here.

White City: Named in honor of its whitewashed Bauhaus architecture, the White City is also a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Getting Around: The best way to navigate Tel Aviv is by taxi or bus. Sherut (shared taxis) are popular; they follow set routes but can drop you off wherever you’d like.
