The flea market, the Greek bar area, the old harbor. All great places to eat, walk about and enjoy the scene. Absolutely lovely.

Jaffa is a very old city (18 century BC) and has all what an old city has to offer + god restaurants, clubs and fly market. Take half a day to walk between the old street and the harbor.

Walked through but there was nothing special here. One shop near entrance sold very interesting jewelry (ask them to see the video) but that was about it. The few restaurants on top were empty. Breathtaking views.

If you are in Tel Aviv then Jaffa is a must visit old city, we've been there twice with the kids, everyone of us has enjoyed. Tip - if you have time, take a boat tour (sail) for 20-30 minutes.

Jaffa old city is quite a contrast as Tel Aviv is a very modern city. It's a very beautiful site filled with romance and flowers. Love the old fashioned doors, windows, plants, stairs, etc. Every little corner could be a perfect background of photography;).

This place is amazing with all these old buildings, little boutique shops that look more like art galleries, narrow streets, clear water fountains. It's small, but it's so much fun to explore, I can come to Jaffa again and again. It is crowded like any...More

You can but just be aware of the cut off time on a Friday which is around 1400. Saturday was not a problem to go visit and see everything.
