Look out across Jaffa Port, once a bustling center of trade. Considered by many to be one of the oldest in the world, the port draws visitors looking for a scenic place for walking and enjoying the sight and sounds of colorful fishing boats, overlooked by the iconic lighthouse on the cliffs above the water. Several of the old shipping hangars now house galleries and cultural spaces, with numerous quaint cafes dotted along the cobbled lanes.
