Tel Aviv ©
Called the "White City" thanks to the color of its World Heritage-listed architectural landmarks, Tel Aviv serves as Israel's modern and cosmopolitan second city.
Change things up with these side-trips from Tel Aviv: Masada National Park (in Masada), Jerusalem (Israel Museum, Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center, & more) and Nazareth Village (in Nazareth). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Jaffa Old City, stroll through Sea of Galilee, steep yourself in history at Mount of Beatitudes, and take in the waterfront at Tayelet.

To find other places to visit, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Tel Aviv trip tool .

Jerusalem to Tel Aviv is an approximately 1-hour car ride. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in August, and nighttime lows around 30°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Fri) early enough to catch the flight to Eilat.
