Summit Garden (HaPisga), Tel Aviv

Summit Garden (HaPisga), Tel Aviv

For an unparalleled view of the whole of Tel Aviv's coastline, head to the top of the gardens in the heart of Old Jaffa, known as HaPisga Garden, or Summit Garden – a green haven bursting with various plants and flowers. Whether you're seeking respite from the city buzz below or simply stopping by for a photo-op, the garden does not disappoint.

As well as the beautiful coastline vista, you can see across Jaffa and the iconic clock tower, the Old Jaffa port, out to sea and across the Tel Aviv's southern neighborhoods. Complete with an amphitheater for outdoor summer events (generically called "The Nights in Jaffa" and running throughout August, every Saturday night), and walking distance from some of the hippest restaurants (BELL, KALAMATA), a visit to HaPisga is a must.

The park is also home to archaeological artifacts, as well as the Statue of Faith decorated with three Biblical relief scenes: Jacob's Dream (left pillar), the Sacrifice of Isaac (right pillar) and the Fall of Jericho (the cross-piece on top). Don't miss the "Wishing Bridge", either, where, according to local legend, visitors should stand at sunset, touch the bronze relief of their astrological sign, and make a wish (the view alone is worth it!).

One of the oldest port cities on the Mediterranean coast, the first record of which dates back to the 15th century BC, Jaffa is a part of Tel Aviv, although quite different in terms of vibe.
