Tel Aviv to Nazareth

Tel Aviv to Nazareth

Tel Aviv is the main city of Israel.  Tel Aviv offers the following points of interest for tourists and photographers;

  • Old city of Jaffa
  • Tel-Aviv port and nightlife
  • Yarkon park
  • Eretz Israel museum
  • Museum of the Jewish people, museum of modern art
  • Bauhaus center
  • Yitzhak Rabin Center
  • Tel Aviv promenade and beaches

Israel declared Jerusalem it’s capital in 1950 but most countries have all their embassies and consulates in Tel Aviv.  It’s easy to find a place to stay in Tel Aviv, there are hotels for all budgets.

Tel Aviv, Israel

Tel Aviv, Israel

Tel Aviv is a huge city, bigger than the capital Jerusalem.  If you are a fan of taking landscape pictures of skyscrapers then there are countless angles to do this around the city.  It’s possible to walk from Jaffa Port through the old city of Jaffa, then along the Tel Aviv promenade.  Along this route you’ll come across thousands of photo opportunities.  You can also visit a beach when you get far enough along the promenade.

The Wishing Bridge of Jaffa, Tel Aviv

The Wishing Bridge of Jaffa, Tel Aviv

The wishing bridge is located in the old town of Jaffa.  On this wooden bridge you’ll find all the zodiac signs.  Legend has it that if you stand with your hands on your zodiac sign looking out to the Mediterranean and make a wish, this wish will come true.  I am a Libra so stood with my hands on the Libra sign.  I did make a wish and I will update when and if it comes true.

Fish and Chips, Jaffa Port

Fish and Chips, Jaffa Port

At Jaffa Port you’ll find lots of bars and restaurants, you can visit for a meal, a coffee or a few beers.  I’m not a foodie but being British I do appreciate fish and chips.  Jaffa port is a great place to visit for nightlife, these fish and chips probably taste a little better after a few beers too!

Azrieli Building, Tel Aviv

Azrieli Building, Tel Aviv

You’ll be able to see the Azrieli Center from almost everywhere in Tel Aviv.  It is possible to visit the Azrieli Center observation deck on the top floor of this building.  From the observation deck you’ll be able to make fantastic photos of the city of Tel Aviv as well as the Mediterranean.  In the basement of the building there’s one of the best shopping malls in Tel Aviv offering plenty of impressive restaurants as well as numerous shops.  Adjacent to the Azrieli Center is the Hashalom train station where you find trains to most locations in Israel including Jerusalem and the airport.

Bus from Tel Aviv to Nazareth

Bus from Tel Aviv to Nazareth

From Tel Aviv I waited at a bus stop on Namir Road and asked the locals how to get Nazareth.  I took bus 825 and the bus driver told me where to get off and change, I then took bus 750 to the center of Nazareth.  As the locals speak English it’s incredibly easy to use the bus service.

An easier option to get to Nazareth would be an organized shuttle with Abraham Tours, this is a similar price as the bus and they’ll take you direct to your desired hotel in Nazareth.

    I have never considered going to Israel so far and it was nice to read the different things you can see in Tel Aviv. The Wishing Bridge sounds like a really interesting place, I would like to put my hands of my zodiac sign and make a wish. I would also like to walk on the promenade, along the seashore, and take photos.

    Seems like there is loads to do and to take photos of! The fish and chips actually look delicious so I laughed when you said they might taste better after a few beers although that might just be true for anything!

    We have heard a lot about Tel Aviv and its lively aura, and its neighbor Jaffa with its old world charm in contrast with Tel Aviv is awe-inspiring. How long does it take from Tel Aviv to Nazareth? Abraham Tours sound reasonable enough of it costs you same as the public transport. Israel is high on list hope to make it sometime soon.

    You must have so many cityscape photos. The view is so good. And ending your walk at a beach sounds just about perfect. I had no idea there were so many interesting things to see and do in Tel Aviv. And I definitely wouldn’t have expected fish and chips to be on the menu! They look good!

    Did you find that Tel Aviv was very commercialised or catered to tourists? I really didn’t expect it to look as it does in your photos. Sounds like you had a great time.

    Tel Aviv seems to have become so popular in the last few years. The beach looks indeed inviting. Hope to visit one day!

    These photos make the city look so great, it is one of my ‘hopefully soon’ future destinations, so these tips are really welcome! Jaffa an Tel Aviv both seem incredible!
