Tel Aviv - Jaffa

Tel Aviv is known as the White City, It was one of the most captivating places to visit.

The city is known for its great delicious cuisine, Light golden-sand beaches, fascinating culture, cosmopolitan vibes, and famed nightlife.


Due to its energetic heart that never stops beating, It is a must-visit place for all kinds of travelers.

The sensation that runs through the city’s air is hard to describe. It has to do something with the fact that receives over three hundred sunny days a year, and the city has some cool beaches.


Tel Aviv is a modern and young land that was founded in 1909 by gathering 66 Jewish families on the beach and using the lottery system to parcel out the land.

However, the history of Jaffa dates back to ancient times.

The old port on the Mediterranean coast had seen the rule of Canaanites, Phoenicians, Romans, Crusaders, Ayyubids, Ottomans, and many more.

Fast forward to modern times, Neve Tzedek was the first Tel Aviv neighborhood.

Later on, It absorbed the historic port of Jaffa. Today, you can often see the name Tel Aviv-Yafo, which is, in fact, the city’s full name.

Weather and Climate in Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv has a subtropical dry-summer climate with scorching summers and moderate winters. Despite being near to Jerusalem, Tel Aviv has a very distinct climate due to its lower elevation, which makes it hotter and more humid. Tel Aviv’s typical summer temperature is 77°F (25°C), while its typical winter temperature is 57°F (14°C).

The rainy season, which lasts from November to April, is marked by high humidity levels. In the winter, Tel Aviv experiences frequent heavy rains and thunderstorms; snowfall is relatively uncommon there. Although summer is the warmest time of year, Tel Aviv may still have extremely hot weather in the spring. Even in winter, the city receives a lot of sunlight. The peak tourist seasons are in July and August.


Summers are long, lasting from May to September, with July and August being the hottest months. Temperatures range between 23-36° C (75-96° F) and you can expect 50-90% humidity.  The good news is that there is air-conditioning almost everywhere you go, from buses and taxis to malls and hotels. However, it is really important to prepare for these temperatures, especially when spending time outdoors. Buy good sun protection, wear long but cool clothes and make sure to drink plenty of water.


Autumn is, for the most part, a continuation of the summer weather. It does get a little cooler and the humidity drops, so it is more comfortable.  The season starts in September and at the end of November it starts getting cooler and we might see a little rain, but not too much.  September is usually as warm as summer, but the temperatures in autumn are similar to those of spring and range between 16-24° C (60-75° F).


Depending where you come from you might not even consider the city weather “real winter weather”.  This is the wettest time of the year and temperatures range between 6-15° C (42-60° F). Israeli schools have a winter break for Channukah during December, this usually doesn’t affect accommodation but activities tend to get crowded. Also, tourists from nearby countries use their winter breaks to enjoy the warmer temperatures in this city.


Spring is between March and May and this is the ideal time to visit this city. You usually won’t see much rain and the temperatures are mild, ranging between 16-24° C (60-75° F), although the nights might still be chilly. Passover falls in April so if you are planning on visiting during this time keep in mind that prices of flights and accommodation will rise and tend to get booked early.


Tel Aviv is a multicultural city.
Ashkenazi Jews from Europe, North America, South America, Australia, and South Africa, as well as Sephardic and Mizrahi Jews from Southern Europe, North Africa, India, Central Asia, West Asia, and the Arabian Peninsula, make up Tel Aviv’s Jewish population, which is the city’s largest ethnic group.

In Tel Aviv, there are also a considerable number of Ethiopian Jews and their descendants. In addition to the Muslim and Arab Christian minorities in the city, Jaffa is home to several hundred Armenian Christians, some of whom emigrated to Israel with Jewish wives and relatives from the former Soviet Union.


The historic land bridge connecting Europe, Asia, and Africa is located in the central . Tel Aviv is located on ground that was formerly sand dunes and, as a result, has relatively poor soil fertility.

It is just to the north of the historic port of Jaffa.
Bluffs above the Mediterranean shoreline and the mouth of the Yarkon River are its most noticeable geographical characteristics. The ground has been leveled and lacks significant slopes.

Absolute boundaries between Tel Aviv and Jaffa as well as between the city’s neighborhoods don’t exist due to the city’s growth and the Gush Dan region’s development.


Jaffa has been home to Arabs and Jews for centuries, making it a fascinating blend of cultures and architecture.

Jaffa is considered to be one of the oldest ports in the world, as its history reaches back to ancient times.

Yes, one of the most important things to know before visiting the area is that ancient history is on every corner, even in modern cities.

Only a short stroll away is an attractive Smiling Whale or an intriguing hanging Orange Tree.

And if you still have some free time, think about going to Jaffa’s well-known flea market.

Remember to bargain for a lower price and carry cash.

When you’re ready to leave the historic area, walk back via the promenade to Tel Aviv’s modern neighborhoods.

The views of the city skyline, Mediterranean Sea, and sandy beaches are amazing.

It also works vice versa, but the modern buildings will be replaced with the old port dominated by the St. Peter’s Church

What is the cheapest time to fly ?

Israel’s high season is from June to August, so those will obviously be the most expensive months to fly to Tel Aviv. Now, the cheapest month may fluctuate, and the reason for that is that Jewish holidays do not always fall in the same month, for example, one year Passover may fall in March and the next it will be in April.  So, check when the Jewish holidays are this year and look for tickets just after they end. This happens again with the high holidays usually in September or October. Flight prices will decrease in November.


“Tel Aviv, isn’t that dangerous?”  It is not dangerous, because of all the security, the city is probably one of the safest cities .

When is the best time to book my flight ?

There are many different factors that effect each route and so the bad news is – no one rule fits all. But, the good news is that Hopper, a Boston-based start up that analyses flight data and predicts the best time to book a specific flight is doing a great job (they are right 95% of the time), so we suggest checking out their predictions for your flight.
