Dizengoff Street Shopping (Self Guided), Tel Aviv

Dizengoff Street is one of the most famous and iconic streets in Tel Aviv, an epicenter of cool fashions that was once described as the "Champs-Élysées of Tel Aviv". The boulevard suffered a decline in the 1970s, but in recent years has enjoyed a major revival and is once again one of THE shopping destinations in the city.

Some of the best designer shops can be found on the pavements, so if you want a great new look, this is the place to be. The street is also the home of the Dizengoff Center, Tel Avis's first major shopping mall. It gradually opened over a period of several years in the late 1970s and early 1980s and encompasses more than 400 stores. The mall is situated on both sides of the street and bridges connect the two sections.

As well as great shopping, Dizengoff Street has a number of cafés and restaurants. One of the other major attractions of this long thoroughfare is Dizengoff Square, a vast public plaza at the confluence of six streets. It was built in the 1930s in honor of the then mayor’s wife, Tzina. In the middle is a large fountain that is illuminated at night.
