If Jerusalem is Israel's spiritual murmur, Tel Aviv is its nocturnal symphony. Carefree and hedonistic, the coastal metropolis unveils many cultural and historic attractions, whose splendors are in perfect harmony with its majestic beaches.
Illuminated by one of the mildest climates, Tel Aviv offers a light-hearted vibe, a cheerful interlude that commands you to enjoy the moment.
Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city's abundance of Bauhaus-style buildings can't fail to surprise, with the visitor's eyes being treated to a miscellany of clean lines and asymmetrical forms. A subtly old-fashioned sophistication, whose charm reaches its climax when you stroll around the Dizengoff neighborhood.
When you head out to the district of Neve Tzedek, you'll discover a quite different charm. Feeling more Mediterranean with its small village houses, this haven of peace provides the perfect setting for enjoying a cardamom coffee.
As you get closer to old Tel Aviv, near Jaffa, the city revives its links with its origins. It is the multitude of different identities, more than its white walls from long ago or its gentle waterfront, that really shines here. This is a real pacifist enclave, that you'll appreciate as you stroll around its famous flea market, a truly universal meeting place.
Back in Tel Aviv itself, the Museum of Art of Tel Aviv offers us a more prestigious side of the Israeli metropolis. Offering a quite different encounter, the museum unveils a collection of works of art in which Degas rubs shoulders with Picasso, Pollock and Van Gogh.
Fully deserving of its nickname, the "Bubble" is primarily a city to be enjoyed after sunset. As the festive heart of an entire country, the hippest clubs are sure to delight those in search of exciting nightlife, while the most romantic will head to one of its beaches where they'll enjoy the cool sea breezes.
