Called the "White City" thanks to the color of its World Heritage-listed architectural landmarks, Tel Aviv serves as Israel's modern and cosmopolitan second city. Many opt for a day trip to Tel Aviv from nearby Jerusalem, but a longer stay allows visitors to discover the city's many hidden charms. Worthy attractions include galleries brimming with contemporary, artisan boutiques and chic restaurants delivering some of the most innovative dishes in the world. Located on the Mediterranean coastline, Tel Aviv also represents one of the region's top beach destinations. The city's developed seashore boasts some of its most popular gathering places, with bars and restaurants spilling onto the sand and providing ideal spots for watching the sunset. When using our Israel trip planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
