Carmel Market: Our most recommended tours and activities

Tel Aviv Urban Tour: Architecture, Food & Street Art

1. Tel Aviv Urban Tour: Architecture, Food & Street Art

Walk the famous Rothschild Boulevard and surrounding streets admiring the diverse buildings and architecture in Tel Aviv. Known as the “White City”, Tel Aviv has the largest collection of Bauhaus buildings worldwide and tells a rich historical story through the buildings. Learn about both the past and future of the Tel Aviv cityscape while exploring the areas. Next, you will explore the Carmel Market, a cornucopia of flavors, smells, sounds and sights brimming with fresh, local ingredients. Marvel at the colors of fresh fruit and vegetables piled high, vibrant spices, artisan baked goods, local meats and cheeses, olives and sweets. The market is the heart of the city and is filled with energy. Enjoy several food samplings along the way including Dolmas - a Druzian style rice wrapped in vine leaves, Ghat and etrog juice - a local ingredient with a history, Garinim - a mix of roasted seeds, a popular Israeli snack, Zaatar with Lahuh - a middle eastern herb blend with a soft Yemei fermented bread, Halva - a sweet confectionery made from sesame seeds, and a seasonal market item. (Items are subject to change based on availability/seasonality). Then you will continue on to the southern Tel Aviv district of Florentin, a graffiti and street art haven filled with many works of art both large and small. The artwork tells a story, often with historical and cultural relevance. Gain a deeper insight and awareness to the subculture in Tel Aviv and the importance of the street art scene. When possible, we have collaborated directly with the local street artists to promote accurate information and support of their work. After the tour, we will provide information of artists whose work has been seen on the tour providing social media information and where possible, opportunities to purchase work directly from the artists.

The seven-hour tour flew by. The tour was varied and - in addition to the obligatory highlights that you know from travel guides - you really saw some corners that you "normally" don't reach. Great.
