Description

Enjoy a guided tour of Jaffa Old City, the primarily Muslim district, with its historic port. Here, in the southern part of Tel Aviv, ancient history blends with vibrant culture, stunning architecture, winding streets, and a rich heritage. Discover hidden gems and visit historic landmarks. The tour begins at Abulafia, the oldest bakery in Jaffa, where you can purchase a coffee or bakery item before the tour. Then it is off to Clock Tower Square with its iconic clock tower, a landmark which also serves as a gateway to the Old City. The next stop is St. Peter's Church, a 19th-century Franciscan church with a rich history. According to tradition, this is the site where the apostle Peter stayed while visiting Jaffa. The church offers beautiful views of the city, the coastline and the Mediterranean Sea. Then it is on to Kdumim Square, a charming plaza lined with restaurants, cafes, and shops. Take a moment to enjoy the lively atmosphere and consider coming back here later for a coffee or a bite to eat. One of the highlights of the Old City is the famous Flea Market (Shuk Hapishpishim). Here, your guide will point out the blend of antique shops, art galleries, clothing boutiques, and street vendors, all selling a variety of unique goods, and all available for a good price once you learn how to haggle. Walking through the narrow streets of this Muslim district, you will come across the Mahmoudiya Mosque, an impressive Ottoman-era mosque. Here you can appreciate the beautiful architecture and serene ambiance of this sacred place. No visit to Jaffa is complete without exploring its picturesque port. The Jaffa Port has a long history, dating back over 3,000 years. Your guide will lead you on a leisurely stroll along the waterfront, admire the boats, and soak in the maritime atmosphere. Nearby the port sits Andromeda's Rock, a legendary spot where the mythical princess Andromeda was said to have been saved from a sea monster by Perseus. This area offers stunning views of the coastline and the Tel Aviv Skyline and an excellent photo opportunity. The tour finishes at the southernmost end of the famous Tel Aviv Promenade which runs 8 kilometers north, along the beachfront from, all the way to the Port of Tel Aviv
