The historic neighborhood Vogue just gushed about
From art galleries to hip bars and restaurants, these photos show why Jaffa is becoming a must-visit destination.
If you happen to stroll through Tel Aviv, Israel's second-largest city, you may find yourself in an ancient neighborhood that feels a little different than the nearby modern metropolis. It's mysterious, it's artsy and it's in vogue – literally.
"A stroll through Jaffa is a journey that takes you through arched alleys that start and stop suddenly, past golden stone buildings bathed in sun and hidden in shadow, through streets with signs marked with zodiac symbols," began a recent Vogue article. "It’s a mix of weirdness and intrigue that’s befitting of a 4,000-plus-year-old port city that’s starting to really register on must-travel lists."
