Tel Aviv, Israel
Tel Aviv, a city on Israel’s Mediterranean coast, is marked by stark 1930s Bauhaus buildings, thousands of which are clustered in the White City architectural area. Museums include Beit Hatfutsot, whose multimedia exhibits illustrate the history of Jewish communities worldwide. The Eretz Israel Museum covers the country’s archaeology, folklore and crafts, and features an on-site excavation of 12th-century-B.C. ruins.
There is so much to do and see in Tel Aviv. The Israeli coast is a land of excitement in itself: once you’re done with the city’s world renowned party scene, or had some of the most delicious food you have ever eaten , you’ll have some time to explore, head two minutes south, and you will find Jaffa, an ancient Arab port which is still a thousand years away. Head twenty minutes north, and you will discover Caesarea, a beach town named after Julius Caesar and housing some of the best archaeological sites in the world. And in less than hour east, you will be in Jerusalem – one of the most religiously intense, provocative cities that exist. Again, largely untouched in hundreds of years, you won’t know what century you’re in.
