Places to visit in Tel Aviv-Yafo. Languages: ru, en, he

In the early 60s of the 20th century, when a decision was made on the general development of the ancient Jaffa region, which at that time turned into a region of slums and dilapidated houses, excavations were carried out in parallel with the process of preparation for restoration and renovation. One of the four excavation areas on the slope of the central hill of the city was not casual. Ancient cities have always been built on an elevated place near important trade routes and near water sources. All these conditions were present in ancient Jaffa, and only after about 15 centuries, after the beginning of its history, the city "went down" to the sea, when the importance and need for maritime trade appeared. Therefore, excavations at the top of the slope could reveal a more ancient history of the city. It is about this story - the middle and end of the second millennium BC and testify to the discovered city gates of the time of Pharaoh Ramses the Second. This is one of the legendary Egyptian pharaohs. During the reign of Ramses the Second, the first peace treaty in the history of mankind was concluded. It was an agreement with the Khet kingdom. During the reign of Ramses the Second, the construction of the famous temples in Luxor began, and the coastal territory of Canaan (the modern coast of Israel) turned into the most important trading cities, among which the ancient Jaffa.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на epraisman@gmail.com и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?

Jaffa - from the promenade to the promenade

This unhurried walk from the embankment through the old city to another part of the embankment will allow you to fully understand and feel the old part of the city of Jaffa. Walking along the promenade from the famous ledge resembling the bow of a ship to the customs building, we learn the history of an important port city, and, having understood from the port along the stairs to its narrow streets, we plunge into the kingdom of the east. But not for long will we be accompanied by a sense of fairy tales of a thousand and one nights. The modern history of Jaffa will slightly open the veil on his creative and pictorial side. These are galleries, monuments, sculptures, a constant floating orange and zodiac signs with a wish bridge. We conclude our walk by going down along the house of Simon Tanner to the English part of the port to its restaurants, shops and the famous scales, which served the English customs faithfully in a difficult fight against smugglers. By the way, from the roof of the house of the tanner Simon almost two thousand years ago, Christianity began its journey to Rome. Translated with Google Translate
