1 day in Tel Aviv

We will arrive in TLV about noon and hope to do the following.

Walk to old port, Jaffa and have lunch.

Flea market, Jaffa

Diaspora museum

Palmach museum

Walk in Neve Tzedek area

And advice - esp which order to do them - greatly appreciated. Where can we have a moderately priced dinner?

We hope to do the Nahlat Benjamin market the next morning before going to the airport.

Arriving at noon in what month of the year and day of the week? It will not be possible to do everything even during summer hours, but some yes. You need to make an appointment for the Palmach museum in advance. The Diaspora museum is next door. I suggest planning either the museums or Jaffa/Neve Zedek because they are on opposite sides of the city and will take awhile in a taxi to get from one another. Furthermore the Nahalat Benyamin market is only on Tuesday and Friday so plan accordingly.

Hi Chana,

Oops. I missed saying it's on a Mon in early November.

If we go to Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, can we skip the Diaspora museum, or are they very different?

So to clarify, you're saying we can Either do the museums OR Jaffa/ Neve Zedek, but not both? Oh dear!!

The Diaspora Museum shares the history of the Jews in the Diaspora over thousands of years while Yad VaShem focuses only on the Holocaust - totally different.

Thanks Oreets for clarifying that for us. Looks like we will have to give the museums a miss, THIS time. Hope to return again.....

Shalom.
