Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv is a city like no other. One foot in the Middle East, the other lounging in the warm waters of the Med, it offers a truly unique blend of both. Serving as Israel’s cultural, commercial and culinary capital, you can experience city centre hedonism, beach tranquility and ancient architecture all in one morning.

The city has a plethora of stories to tell – Andromeda, beauty of Greek mythology (or more recently, The Clash of the Titans movie) was rescued from the scattering of rocks visible from the ancient southern port of Jaffa – which is also where Jonah set off for his ill-fated voyage, before he was swallowed by the whale. Jaffa is now known as the artist quarter of Tel Aviv, where ancient streets open up to offer visitors access to galleries, boutiques and, allegedly, the birthplace of hummus. Jaffa was long ago ingratiated into Tel Aviv, which was founded in Neve Tzedek, to the north of the city. Nobel Prize-winning author Shai Agnon lived in this quiet corner of red-roofed houses. Now home to an achingly hip selection of galleries, sushi joints and jewellery shops, it sits adjacent to Rothschild Boulevard which is where to start if you want to view the world’s largest collection of Bauhaus buildings. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the starkly simple lines pop against blooming bougainvillea.
