It isn’t exactly difficult to have a great vacation in Tel Aviv. With glittering Mediterranean beaches, rich historical attractions, world-class restaurants and shopping, and non-stop nightlife, there’s a never-ending selection of things to do and see. However, while it’s easy to enjoy yourself in Tel Aviv, it’s also easy to get overwhelmed and end up feeling like you didn’t experience as much as you wanted to. Here are a few tips you’ll want to keep in mind for maximizing your time in the city.
Tip #1: Book your boutique hotel Tel Aviv carefully.
Regardless of how big, full and intimidating Tel Aviv may seem, it’s entirely possible to get pretty much anywhere you want to go on foot – so long as you book a hotel in the right location. Selecting a hotel like the Varsano, a boutique hotel Tel Aviv in the Neve Tzedek neighborhood, will put you close to the beaches, close to plenty of cultural attractions and historical areas like Jaffa, and of course close to lots of great restaurants and shops.
Tip #2: Narrow down your historical and cultural must-sees.
No trip to Tel Aviv would be complete without lounging on the beach, but the city is also steeped in history and culture, and it would be a shame to leave feeling as though that was something you didn’t get to fully experience. In order to ensure that your trip has a good mix of history, culture, beach-going and other leisure activities, we recommend making a list of your must-sees.
Consider taking in Old Jaffa, an ancient port city that existed some 4000 years ago. In addition to stunning architecture and the ancient port, Old Jaffa is full of art studios and galleries. Tel Aviv’s White City is also a must-see for many, a designated UNESCO World Heritage site that’s home to over 4000 Bauhaus-style buildings built in the 1930s.
Additionally, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art is considered one of the best of the world, and the Azrieli Observatory is located on the uppermost floor of the tallest building in Tel Aviv and offers unparalleled views of Tel Aviv as well as the coastline.
Tip #3: Take time to have fun.
Visiting museums and other historical and cultural attractions can of course be fun, but there’s something to be said for dedicating a full afternoon to shopping, sunbathing, or coffee shop hopping. Once you have your must-sees scheduled, fill in the rest of your time with fun stops like Hatachana, an old railway station full of stores and picturesque settings.
