Jaffa

November 21, 2010

Without a doubt if there is one place not to be missed in Tel Aviv is the ancient port of Jaffa which dates back some 4000 years.  Ancient buildings are mixed in with retail and cafés, outdoor markets and a well-known flea market.  There are galleries along winding stone walkways that seem to go on and on despite it being a very small area geographically.  I walked along the Mediterranean (so I was in the water after all!) and spent most of the day in the area.

Had lunch here

If you ever went to a museum and wondered where you could purchase antiquities, 
here’s the place.  They had items for purchase (certified by the Israeli government) 
dating back to hundreds of years BC.

    Did you make a wish on the wishing bridge? What an old and historic area. Love all the stone.
