The food is outstanding and the beach inviting. But before heading for the beach spend some time with a local guide to really get under the skin of Tel Aviv’s creative energy.
A tour of Tel Aviv invites you to understand its radically modern history and founding visionaries. You will see some of the city’s earliest neighbourhoods – which today luckily happen to be some of its prettiest – and visit Independence Hall, Rothschild Boulevard and other places of note. Tel Aviv is a UNESCO world heritage site for its Bauhaus architecture – keep your eyes peeled throughout the city and get some background at the Bauhaus Centre. The Tel Aviv Museum of Art, for which Roy Lichtenstein created a giant two-panel mural, is a must for all culture vultures.
