Some people know Tel Aviv as the “White City”, which derives from the Bauhaus architecture of buildings that can be found in the city. People in Tel Aviv are renowned for their friendliness and openness. Informality is just about every Tel Avivian's middle name. People in the street will call you their brother or sister, and will take to you very warmly from the moment you meet.
To top it all up, although it is the largest city in Israel, everything is a short distance away. This greatly adds to the community feel of the city and interaction between Tel Avivians. In fact, walking distance from the centre lays one of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean, if not in the world. The weather is always smiling in Israel, and the beach is an attraction for locals and tourists during all seasons, day or night.

Tel Aviv doesn't have a regular history like other major European towns. It wasn't a centre of commerce or a junction for merchants. Its humble beginnings can be traced to a small neighbourhood of Yafo, it formed the basis of Yafo's port. It gradually grew, and finally boomed to become the centre of business, culture, fashion, film and food in Israel. It is quite sensational to consider that a few years ago the entire landscape of the city was completely different. Today, you can be astounded by the beautiful architecture that the city has to offer.
It is no wonder that The New York Times has recently rated Tel Aviv as the capital of Mediterranean “cool”. Culinary Tours in Israel just can't skip this city.
