Tel Aviv’s cosmopolitan culture makes it one of the most lively and exciting cities in the world. From its beautiful sandy beaches, vibrant nightlife and welcoming locals – this is a destination you must visit.
There is so much to see and do in this Mediterranean paradise. But, what are the most important places you should visit in Tel Aviv if you only have 24 hours?
This guide will walk you through everything you should know!
WHERE TO STAY:
If you need a hotel for your visit, relax. Tel Aviv offers a wide variety of hotels; from luxury chain hotels to boutique hotels, Airbnb and even hostels. While which accommodation to choose is up to your taste and budget, I would like to recommend you the location. When staying in Tel Aviv, especially on a short visit, you should stay on the promenade by the beach. Tel Aviv promenade is probably the most touristic place in town and it is the most convenient location since you could easily get around.
From the beach, you could easily walk to some of the main streets in town. However, Tel Aviv is a big city and you’ll also have to go places that are no within a walking distance. Buses can get a little complicated for tourists; but, if you’re on a budget you’ll have to use them. Taxis are expensive but it is definitely the easiest way to get around. Another fun way to find your way around town is to rent a bike from the city’s many bicycles stations.
