Day 1 Start with Tel Aviv-Jaffa: Wander through the lanes of ancient Jaffa and enjoy the galleries, the underground archaeological display and the picturesque fishing port. Proceed to Neve Tsedek, the first Jewish neighborhood outside ancient Jaffa. Neve Tsedek is the home of the Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance and Theatre, the world-famous Bat Sheva Dance Company and a number of restored homes and shops with interesting architecture. Among these is the museum dedicated to the works of the early Tel Aviv artist who captured its spirit in the early days, Nahum Gutman. Speaking of architecture, in July 2003, UNESCO proclaimed the cluster of homes and public buildings of Tel Aviv's founding days as a World Heritage Site. A stroll through the main area of these monuments, known as the "White City," along Rothschild Blvd. and its side streets is a wonderful opportunity to savor life in the first Hebrew city, past and present. On Tuesdays and Fridays, see the Nahalat Binyamin pedestrian mall come alive with stalls selling handicrafts of every type. Proceed to the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and visit the Israeli Art section for a taste of Israel's finest art from the past 100 years. Enjoy the nightlife of a city that never sleeps. Overnight in Tel Aviv For additional itinerary suggestions, please see: www.goisrael.com
