Overview

The capital of Israel is known as “The City that never sleeps”, and is almost too cool for school.

It’s famous for its cosmopolitan and modern 24-hour culture and crazy nightlife, has some of the best restaurants in the world, a thriving LGBT scene, and is often compared to cities like San Francisco and Barcelona.

Located on the Mediterranean, Tel Aviv was named the ninth best beach city in the world by National Geographic, is an international centre of fashion and design, and the White City collection of Bauhaus style buildings is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.

Tel Aviv is also home to over half of Israel’s major centres of performing arts, such as the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center, and has some huge museums such as the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and the Eretz Israel Museum – whose historical and archaeological exhibits deal with all things Israel.

Be a local. Wherever you go.
