Your flight from London to Tel Aviv
Enjoy your comfortable and reliable flight to Tel Aviv and prepare for some fun in the sun. While other cities in Israel are so old that they are mentioned in the Bible, Tel Aviv is completely new. It started out as a suburb of the historic harbour city of Jaffa in 1909 and grew in about a hundred years to become the lively city it is today.
White City by the sea
During the early development, Tel Aviv began to build an entire city quarter in the Bauhaus style with more than 4000 houses in the 1920s and 1930s. The area is called the White City and is part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage. Guided tours through the White City is a must-do for anyone interested in architecture and design. Young people who enjoy the intense nightlife of Tel Aviv are a big portion of the Tel Aviv tourism, but Israel’s second biggest city is also known for its highly creative art scene and as the economic powerhouse of the country.
Being on the beach
Are you still suffering from last night’s party? Do as the locals do and let your hangover gently burned away at the beach. The beaches of Tel Aviv are to some the main attraction of the city, here the hectic city life seems far away. The gentle breeze from the Mediterranean soothes the soul of locals and tourists alike. Cafés and falafel fast food stands are all along the beautiful Tayelet-Promenade that links the many sections of beaches. Make a bicycle ride down the promenade to the old harbour of Jaffa, once controlled by the Phoenicians. You can have a free guided tour, just be at 11 am at the Old Clock Tower in Jaffa. Enjoy your holiday in Tel Aviv and don’t forget your flight back home to London!
