Old Jaffa, Israel

The Old City of Jaffa (or Yafo, as it’s called in Hebrew) sits right next to Tel Aviv and the two share a municipality, making it, in effect, a part of the city of Tel Aviv, but the two are really as different as chalk and cheese. While Tel Aviv is young and modern Jaffa really is old, in fact, it is one of the most ancient sea ports in the Mediterranean Basin.
