About Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv is indeed the cultural, financial and commercial heart of Israel. A cosmopolitan center on the seafront, with fine sandy beaches, a marina, restaurants, pubs and culture on tap every day of the week. The  architecture of the 1930s and 1940s still survives alongside the clean lines of the tall modern buildings.

Tel Aviv is a 40 minute drive on a modern highway, from the holy city of Jerusalem and is an hour’s drive from Haifa, set in the beauty of the Carmel mountain range that acts as a backdrop to the sparkling golden dome of the Baha’i Shrine and Gardens.

One hundred years ago, Tel Aviv was only sand dunes, today it is the CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS.
