This neighbourhood is not touted in any of the Tel Aviv tourist brochures, the way its next door neighbour, Neve Tzedek, is. Few of the 50 to 70-year-old buildings have been renovated, though here, in terms of density, is Tel Aviv's largest...more

Lots of graffiti and artsy types ,as well as regular workers and students. Sort of run down ,but many hidden gems to be found. Wonderful Bauhaus buildings that certainly need some TLC. Well worth a visit if you have spare time on hand.

By default when you hear that an area is hip and full of artists means is downgraded and not so illustrious. The best feature of the area is the multitude of bars and restaurants. If you wanna wander around and do some barhopping is fine....More

Heard about this place, but coming from the USA this is not worth the time unless you are around or need to meet someone here at a coffee shop. Fridays before Shabbat is dead! So do not bother to come during Shabbat.

This area has a huge scope for improvement. Personally I thought it was extremely unattractive and certainly not worth the taxi drive to get there. A real dump!

Tel Aviv is a very interesting city, and Florentine is one of the best neighbourhoods from which to get to know the city. Not far from Jaffa, the beach, or the centre of town, this place is quirky and "alternative" enough to keep you interested,...More

Florentine is not the typical lively Tel Aviv neighborhood. To call it working class is only half the story. The neighborhood is where mostly foreign workers live. Just like any lower income neighborhood in any big city in America. But tucked within the alleyways are...More

Heard about the street art here. There are both great murals and just “doodles” hidden away among the various streets. If you walk down Jaffa Street, there are little clothing shops to visit. Make a left on arabenel and enjoy the art. You can wander...More

This trendy neighbourhood has definitely undergone changes but the area is full of fumes omitted by cars, and is a bubble of pretty cafes , cool people and seemingly yuppie sort of energy but dont be fooled it is part of the working class region...More

Florentine is a very particular part of Tel Aviv. It's to be found south of the city center. It's by far not as chic as Neve Tzedek, the neighbouring quarter. Florentine is home to many different people. African immigrants, artists, gays but also less fortunate...More
