BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN ISRAEL: OUR PICK #9
Travellers to Jaffa are in for a treat, from the sound of the Mediterranean Sea crashing against the rocks that line its waterfront, to the exquisite architecture that fills the Old Town. Despite being just a stone’s throw from the buzzing metropolis of Tel Aviv, Jaffa belongs to a different time and has beautifully preserved its old world charm. The best way to get to grips with the area is simply to wander through its narrow, cobbled streets - you’ll be surprised by what you stumble across. Once you’ve absorbed as much culture as you can, it’s time to hit the eateries and make the most of Jaffa’s biggest draw card - its gastronomic scenery. Culinary delights hide behind almost every door and include, allegedly, the best hummus in the world, shwarma and falafel, all Israeli staples that you’ll just love getting to know.
