Arriving at Tel Aviv airport
Because of its Hebrew initials, the Israelis refer to this airport as Natbag. However, to the rest of the world, it is known as Tel Aviv Ben Gurion International Airport. It is located in Lod, 15 kilometres from the centre of Tel Aviv. How can you get to the centre? It couldn’t be easier…
- By train: straight from the airport, which has its own station underground. A handful of shekels and a quarter of an hour later, you will arrive at the first of the three Tel Aviv stations on this line: HaHagana, HaShalom and Savidor Central (Arlozorov). One departure every 30 minutes. No trains from Friday evening to Saturday evening.
- By taxi: the airport’s official company lowered its prices in May 2017. It now costs less than 100 shekels for a journey of around 20 minutes.
- By hiring a car from one of the seven companies present at the airport.
What to do in
Tel Aviv ?
Want to know the secret to a great time in Tel Aviv? Drink coffee! Lots of coffee, so that you can ward off sleep for as long as possible and keep up with the dizzying pace of this metropolis. After all, it shares a nickname with New York: the city that never sleeps. Perhaps it owes this non-stop whirlwind of activity to its age: this very young city has been around for barely 110 years. It’s just a baby compared to Jerusalem, the country’s other major city, which goes back millennia. And this youth is palpable: although Tel Aviv does not turn its back on local traditions, it is resolutely modern. Even its past is modern! The historic White City, for example, is still revered by architects today.
A city of contrastsSee more See less
There are two sides to Tel Aviv. Its art and architecture display strong elements of Western culture. However, through Jaffa, the ancient Arab city that has become one of its most picturesque areas, it expresses its Oriental roots.
It is seen as the economic heart of Israel and the inventor of the world of the future. And yet, from the beaches of the Tayelet to the bars and restaurants of Rothschild Boulevard, it knows how to party like there’s no tomorrow, living intensely in the moment.
Design, shopping, art galleries and night clubs: it has a reputation for being devoted to adult pleasures, to moments of abandon best experienced as a couple or group. Yet its Luna Park, its zoo and its huge lake, where people come to cycle or hire a pedalo, make it great for children and families too. “Come on kids, we’re off to Tel Aviv!”
The top 10 things to do in Tel AvivSee more See less
- Wander through the streets of the White City, the heart of Tel Aviv. When it was created in 1930, it attracted architects from all over Europe, resulting in what UNESCO has called an “outstanding architectural ensemble of the Modern Movement”.
- Visit Jaffa, the old Arab rival of Tel Aviv, which has become one of its most fascinating neighbourhoods. It is beautiful, great for food (with excellent wine bars and the legendary pita bread from the Said Abulafia & Sons bakery), and it offers a touch of the exotic with its famous flea market.
- Go out on Rothschild Boulevard and the neighbouring streets. This is the epicentre of Tel Aviv’s famous nightlife. Restaurants, bars and clubs abound. A wild and wonderful atmosphere!
- Soak up some culture by visiting the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, where you can see works by Picasso, Van Gogh, Kandinsky, Pissarro, Chagall, Ernst and Pollock.
- Buy local. Tel Aviv is full of designers and artists, creating stunning fashion and jewellery. The best spots: the Dizengoff Centre, the Neve Tzedek neighbourhood and the Old Jaffa Railway Station, Israel’s oldest station, which has been converted into an open-air shopping centre.
- Walk, cycle or skate down the Tayelet, a beautiful, long seafront promenade, then stretch out on a towel on Gordon Beach, the best beach in the city.
- Do your shopping in one of the city’s most wonderful markets: Tel Aviv Port Market is renowned for its organic and farm produce, and for its amazing eateries. Alternatively, head to Sarona Market, where the whole world seems to come together in a few thousand square metres, or Shuk HaCarmel, where the locals shop.
- Eat a picnic in Park HaYarkon, Tel Aviv’s answer to Central Park, where you can enjoy many activities: themed gardens, a zoo, a water park, cycling, pedalos, a hot air balloon, etc.
- Share some laughs and some excitement with your family at Luna Park. This five-hectare amusement park has roller coasters, a pirate ship and a big wheel.
- Discover the wildlife of Africa, on foot or in a car, by visiting Ramat Gan Safari, which has over 1600 animals: 83 mammal species, 92 bird species, and 23 reptile species.
