TLV Sights
 
Neve Tzedek Neighborhood
Constructed in 1887, some 22 years prior to the official establishment of Tel Aviv, Neve Tzedek is the first Jewish neighborhood to be built outside of Jaffa. Today it is a renovated "village-like" neighborhood, center of culture, art, shopping and dining. 
Exploring the narrow lanes and winding streets of the neighborhood is a marvelous experience. The area has been restored to preserve the special architectural style of the old neighborhood and each corner presents a charming surprise: inviting cafes, delightful one-of a-kind designers' shops, unique jewelry and accessories stores, galleries, fantastic restaurants and a neighborly atmosphere.
A lovely spot indeed is the Suzanne Dellal center, originally built as a girls' school and today a cultural center, offering dance and music performances from Israel and around the world.
 
Tel Aviv Port
With no residential neighborhoods close by, the historical port of TLV developed in recent years to become a sea-side entertainment and shopping center. No matter what time it is, morning, sunset or night, the beautiful huge deck over looking the water is a gorgeous place to spend some lazy time. Check out the bars, night-clubs, cafés, theaters and some of the city's top restaurants; enjoy a romantic walk or a beer in the sun and watch the world as it slowly goes by. 
 
Yitzhak Rabin Memorial
Lying humbly in the exact location of the tragic assassination, The Yitzhak Rabin memorial is a touching site. Sixteen basalt rocks from the Golan Heights, sunk in the ground appearing to have suffered an earthquake symbolize a traumatic experience in Israeli history. A small fraction of the spontaneous graffiti, written on the night of the murder and after, was preserved and you will see it on the walls in the area.
 
Azrieli Observatory
A breath taking view of the long coastline and the busy Metropolis makes this window to the city a special site. Located on the 49th floor of the Round Building at Azrieli Center, the highest observatory in the country awaits you. On a good day you can see as far as Ashkelon in the south and Hadera in the north. Telescopes and personal audio guidance will take you around the city for an up close and personal tour. On the third floor of the Azrieli Mall is the ‘Total Tel Aviv Experience’ – the early days of Tel Aviv come to life in a 3D film.
 
BAUHAUS – The White City of TLV
Amongst the immigrants arriving from Europe during the 1930's were a few young architects, graduates of the Bauhaus School of Art and Design. They brought with them a fresh architectural style and many new ideas. A walk through the center of Tel Aviv reveals their remarkable influence on the city's appearance. In July, 2003, UNESCO Organization proclaimed 'The White City', the unique urban and historical fabric of Tel Aviv-Jaffa, as a World Cultural Heritage site.

The American-German Colony
Just off Eilat Street, where Tel Aviv meets Jaffa, a magical corner is hidden. The charming wood and stone buildings of the American-German Colony add another piece to the historical puzzle. Built in 1866 this was the first, large colony developed by and for Christian settlers living in the Holy Land. Unfortunately, the colony did not last very long: a mere year following its construction in 1866, the original settlers left. The area came to life again in 1868, when parts of the colony were acquired by German Templers who further developed the settlement.
