Introducing Tel Aviv


On the shores of the Mediterranean, Tel Aviv retains its traditional character, despite being a modern, dynamic city. There's something of historic and cultural value on almost every street in the city, and there are many museums holding some of the secrets of the past. But it's not just the location, history and art of the city which gives it its character, its cuisine is another fascinating, and delicious dimension to Tel Aviv. Its dishes are a melding of the Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Levantine culinary traditions, and has some real treats to offer visitors. The nearby city of Jerusalem is the holy land of the three major monotheistic religions, with people traveling from far and wide to visit its important holy monuments, including Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Dome of the Rock, Temple Mount and the Western Wall - it's well worth setting aside some time see it while visiting Tel Aviv.
