What to do in Tel Aviv
Visit Tel Aviv during your cruise vacation
Tel Aviv means "Spring Hill". This metropolis on the west coast of Israel is the second largest city in the country and the cultural and economic center of the Jewish state.
At the end of the 19th century, Tel Aviv was a settlement of Russian Jews. Several modern neighborhoods were built after the First World War and a second immigration wave gave new impulses.
Especially in the 30's beautiful buildings and offices were designed in Bauhaus style. Today, Tel Aviv is a large open-air museum for architecture from the 30's. Most houses are white against the heat and since 2003 the "white city" is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It's one of the main highlights of this special city.
Count on half a day to explore the city. On the way back you can possibly visit Ashdod or Haifa.
