To the south of the city lies Jaffa, an ancient city first inhabited around 7500 BCE.
The city is also famous for its gay scene and hosts the country’s biggest pride parade every June.
The relatively small size of the city makes it easy to navigate across town by bicycle or scooter and transport connections make it an excellent place from which to explore the rest of the country.
