From the XV to the XIII century BC e. the Mediterranean coast of modern Israel was under the control of the Egyptians. During the time of King David, the city of Jaffa became part of the Jewish kingdom. When the Middle East entered the empire of Alexander the Great, Jaffa also became part of the new Hellenistic world. The Roman commander Pompey gave freedom to the city of Jaffa (66 BC). In 47 BC e. Julius Caesar transferred the city to the kingdom of Judea. Mark Anthony gave the ancient Jaffa to Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, but the Emperor Octavian returned the city to the Jewish king Herod the Great. Under the Byzantines, the city retains its role as a center for Middle Eastern trade and a transit port. In 636, Jaffa was conquered by the Arabs. At the end of the 11th century, the turbulent times of the Crusades began. The Crusaders took the city, many Jews and Muslims were destroyed, the rest were expelled. Jaffa as a city of crusaders lasted almost a hundred years - in 1196 it was conquered by the army of Al-Malik al-Adil (brother of the famous Saladin). In 1260, the Mongols attacked the city. Eight years later, the sultan of the Mamelukes Beybars completely destroyed both the city and its population. Only during the period of Turkish rule (in the first half of the XVII century) the city is reborn again. The flow of Christian and Jewish pilgrims is growing. In the era of the Napoleonic Wars, the city of Jaffa was occupied by French troops. During World War I, the city passed into the hands of the British Army. Translated with Google Translate

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
