How can i get to the Wishing Bridge from Tel Aviv?

Hello

I will be in Israel in November and I have been told that I should visit the Wishing Bridge in Jaffa. Does anyone know how to get there from Tel Aviv. Is there a bus?

Thanks

Vicky

Jaffa is part of the same municipality as Tel Aviv. There are plenty of buses from Tel Aviv to Jaffa, but you would need to walk the last part because there is no vehicle access to the bridge (which is in the middle of a park in the old city).

If you tell us where in Tel Aviv you will be staying, we can help you with bus information. You could even be within walking distance, if you're a reasonably fit walker.

Thanks for your reply.

We have booked our hotel yet but we would be staying near Firshman/Tel Aviv Marina? Where would be the best area to stay so its accessible to main sights?

Is the Old City located in Old Jaffa - apologise is the question is stupid cos I am trying to plan the transportation on how to get there.

Is Old jaffa far from the hotels close to the beach?

Thanks

Here is a map showing the Old City of Jaffa, and also the Wishing Bridge:

…typepad.com/.shared/image.html…

Roughly speaking, everything in the top half of the map is the Old City of Jaffa. Tel Aviv is off the map, past the top right-hand corner. Here is a general map to give you a better idea:

mugraby-hostel.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/0…

Old Jaffa is the bulge at the bottom left. Frishman Street is to the right of the box saying "Location! Mugraby Hostel" and Gordon Beach, a large street shown in yellow, going more or less horizontally. The marina is also shown on the map, north of Gordon Beach. (Ignore all the other stuff on the map; it's the only one I could find showing both Jaffa and Frishman Street!)

No questions are stupid; how would you know if you don't ask?

I can work out the buses for you if nobody else comes along with the information before I do.

BTw - just for your information - you will be able to see the bridge but will not be able to walk across it as it is being reinforced/renovated and so is closed.

Bus 10 will take you from the corner of Frishman and Ben-Yehuda all the way to Jaffa.

It is a nice walk to Jaffa, no need to get a bus.
