Hello Israeli experts
I am sure I shall want to ask many other questions but firstly, I would like to eat!!
We have an apartment in Tel Aviv for 2 weeks and, as planning had it, we arrive on 29th March. It just so happens that my friend will arrive late afternoon and I shall arrive in the wee hours after midnight.
Firstly, is my friend going to find anywhere to eat? Where?
The following day 30th, we really would like to go somewhere very nice for a birthday celebratory meal. Possible? How many days over Passover are shops, restaurants closed, it at all after 29th?
In principal, we want to just take in the atmosphere of Tel Aviv and Jaffa slowly.
As it is our first time to Israel but presumably not our last, we do wish to see other places but do not intend cramming everything in. I personally would prefer quality as opposed to quantity. If we miss places out, we miss them out.
Jerusalem is on the list. I am thinking of going by train in the morning and returning in the evening. If we need to do this a couple of times, then so be it.
I think Haifa is also possible by train - day return?
Would love to spoil ourselves at the Dead Sea at a Spa - any suggestions? Presumably we could rent a car and go for the day?
My next question is Kineret, river Jordan, Tiberias - I am planning on hiring a car for that area. Is it possible, even if we do it a couple of times, to go and return on the same day without rushing things.
Spring flowers,countryside,picnics come to mind.
Any suggestions at all ??
Thank you so much.
