Length: 3.0 mi • Est. 1 h 17 m
This is a city walk (סיור עירונית בשכונות ההיסטוריות של תל אביב) around some historical neighbourhoods: Jaffa port, the American-German colony, Neve Tzedek and the old railway station. Tel Aviv, the first Hebrew city, was officially founded in 1909. A group of 66 families settled in the sand dunes north of Jaffa with the goal of building "a Hebrew urban centre in a healthy environment". This land north of Jaffa, now the heart of Tel Aviv, was not totally empty before 1909: the Templar Colony, the Jewish neighborhood Neve Tzedek, the railway station and even Trumpeldor cemetery were all here before Tel Aviv. This walk will take you to some of the pre-Tel Aviv sites - all restored and recently developed as cultural and entertainment areas.Show more

Length: 1.3 mi • Est. 35 m
In the Footsteps of Israel's Founders (טיול בתל אביב בצעדי מייסדי ישראל) Perhaps one of the best ways to get to know Tel Aviv is a walk along its beach and promenade. Already at sunrise scores of people can be found- both young and old - swimming, running, walking, playing paddle ball and even standing on their heads, as David Ben Gurion, the founder of the State of Israel, used to do! Ben Gurion apparently learned about the benefits of yoga from a conversation he had with Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime minister of India, and practiced standing on his head with Moshe Feldenkrais, his personal trainer. Ben Gurion was extremely well read, a true renaissance man and enough of a "realist" (even when standing on his head!) to have said in an interview 1956 with CBS that: "In Israel, in order to be a realist you must believe in miracles." By following this trail, one can experience the vibrancy of Tel Aviv and "meet" some of the key figures that have shaped modern day Israel. One of the most prominent viewpoints along the Tel Aviv beach front is found at the impressive monument of London Square - This trail begins (there is also a large underground parking conveniently located here). Continue by walking down the beach front promenade from London Square to Atarim (also known as Namir) Square, and stop along the way to read the historical plaques. Opposite London Square is a plaque dedicated to a ship called the Altalena, sunk off the Tel Aviv coast in the summer of 1948. Father along is another marker (in Hebrew - just opposite the French Embassy) dedicated to the elite pre-state "Palmah" fighting unit which had its headquarters at that very spot. Continuing along the promenade you'll find a plaque (on a wall on the right) dedicated to one of Israel's most well-known peace activists - Abbie Natan - who for many years ran a pirate radio station, offshore (Somewhere in The Mediterranean") - called "The Voice of Peace." Next, walk via Atarim square to Ben Gurion Boulevard, a wide, shady, tree-lined lane, with separate paths for both pedestrians and bicycles, that often hosts street events. A visit to the home of David Ben Gurion is a must! The final leg of this tour crosses Ben Yehuda street and then follows Dizengoff Street, where you can begin to "L'hizdangeff" - a slang term which means that you're simply "hanging out on Dizengoff Street." While this legendary street began to decline in popularity in the 1970s and 80s, in recent years it's undergone a kind of renaissance. The street is famous for its square and landmark fountain in its center (which sometimes spits fire!) designed by artist Yakov Agama..Show more
