Known as the “city that never sleeps,” Tel Aviv is Israel’s most vibrant city and major economic and cultural center on the Mediterranean. Nearby, Jaffa, with its 3,000 year-old history, welcomes visitors during the day and night, with its array of fine dining establishments and art and cultural shops; likewise known as Joppa, Jaffa, is the traditional site of the home of Simon the Tanner and the place where Peter stayed (Acts 9:36-42), and is often the first site Christian visitors will experience when newly arriving during daylight hours at Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport.
As the first modern Jewish city built in thousands of years, Tel Aviv is bursting with sidewalk cafes, stunning beaches, fine dining, museums, performing arts centers and theaters, along with a variety of trendy shopping options, entertainment, culture, a dynamic nightlife, and a business and trade center. Tel Aviv boasts an array of hotels with myriad accommodations, beautiful gardens, outdoor markets, world famous Tel Aviv University, historical sites, discotheques, an action-packed amusement park, and houses of worship: synagogues, churches, monasteries, and mosques.
