Things to do in Tel Aviv, Israel

Israel may be a tiny country, but the amount of sites it offers can make planning a trip an overwhelming endeavour. Don’t fret! We’ve combed through the country from east to west and north to south to bring you the definitive guide of not-to-be-missed attractions. From sandy beaches and archaeological sites, to bridal boutiques and food markets, you’ll never run out of things to do in Israel.

Tel Aviv could not be more different to its older sibling, Jerusalem. Modern, vibrant and cosmopolitan: hedonism is the main religion in this hip, bustling Mediterranean ‘Manhattan’. In Hebrew, the city’s name means ‘Hill of Spring’, and it does have an air of perpetual renewal. All over the city, flowers blossom, new restaurants open, and there’s always a party going on somewhere.

Tel Aviv’s biggest draw is its strip of fine beaches, but it’s also home to Unesco-listed Bauhaus buildings, historic Jaffa (Yafo) with its fascinating Arab heritage, the quiet Neve Tzedek quarter and trendy Florentin. Expect everything from art galleries to military museums, upmarket bistros to simple hummus joints, peaceful parks to pumping bars. Cranes and skyscrapers may point the way forward, but it’s still a city with its feet firmly on the ground. A few days here is fun, but a week can be a revelation – don’t miss it.

Be sure to delve into the Kosha cuisine. Recommended restaurants include:


No ordinary ice cream shop, Arte sells bona fide gelato in the heart of the Nahalat Binyamin Crafts market and is run by chefs Stefania Pagani and Marco Camorali, professional ice cream makers from Tuscany and Sicily.

Old Man & the Sea:

As classic as the Hemingway novel of the same name, this Old Man is still at the top of his game. Spacious enough for dozens of waiters to serve hundreds of people, its terrace overlooks the sea in southern Jaffa.
