36 Hours in Tel Aviv Photo Gallery

Tel Aviv is a fairly new city, founded in 1909 as a suburb for the ancient port of Jaffa. That being said, Israel is a lot more than Tel Aviv, so if you have more time, make sure this city doesn't feature too prominently on your itinerary.

Ben Gurion International Airport is only a short train ride to the city, although the line doesn't go near the attractions which cluster around the Mediterranean coastline. After getting off the train, I needed to take a much lengthier bus ride to the waterfront. Get and load up a Rav-Kav card at the airport as buses no longer take cash fares.

With only 36 hours in town, I spent my first morning exploring Florentin's graffiti and market, followed by a walk along Rothschild Boulevard to see the White City architecture. After a quick lunch at Sarona Market, I continued to explore the city's skyscrapers before finishing up at Carmel Market. I spent the next morning seeing Jaffa's historic sights before returning to the airport for the flight out.
