Tips for Exploring City on Foot at Your Own Pace

Whether you are in Tel Aviv for a quick stopover or have a few days to see the city in more detail, exploring it on foot, at your own pace, is definitely the way to go. Here are some tips for you to save money, see the best Tel Aviv has to offer, take good care of your feet while walking, and keep your mobile device – your ultimate "work horse" on this trip - well fed and safe.

Staying at Walk-Friendly Hotels

Since you're keen on exploring cities on foot (we assume that you are, and this is why you're here), it is important that you stay at a hotel close to the city's major attractions. It saves you time and energy. Here are a few of Tel Aviv hotels conveniently located for a comfortable stroll: Prima Tel Aviv Hotel, Isrotel Tower Hotel, Royal Beach Hotel Tel Aviv by Isrotel Exclusive Collection.

Taking Care of Your Feet

To ensure ultimate satisfaction from a day of walking around the city as big as Tel Aviv, it is imperative to take good care of your feet so as to avoid unpleasant things like blisters, cold or overheated soles, itchy, irritated or otherwise damaged (cracked) skin, etc. Luckily, these days there is no shortage of remedies to address (and, ideally, to prevent) these and other potential problems with feet. Among them: Compression Socks, Rechargeable Battery-Powered Thermo Socks for Cold Weather, Foot Repair Cream, Deodorant Powder, Shoes UV Sterilizer, and many more that you may wish to find a place in your travel kit for.

Travel Gadgets for Your Mobile Device

Your mobile phone or tablet will be your work horse on a self-guided walk. They offer tour map, guide you from one attraction to another, and provide informative background for the sights you wish to visit. Therefore it is absolutely essential to plan against unexpected power outages in the wrong place at the wrong time, much as to ensure the safety of your device.

For these and other contingencies, here's the list of useful appliances: Portable Charger/External Battery Pack, Worldwide Travel Charger Adapter, Power Converter for International Travel Adapter, and Mobile Device Leash.

Exploring City on Guided Tours

We have a strong bias towards exploring a city on foot, at your own pace, because this is how you get to see things up close with a maximum freedom. You decide how much time you wish to spend at each attraction and don't have to worry about following a crowd. That said, however, we also understand that some of you may want to go with a guided tour. If that is your case, here are some guided tours to consider. Be ready to fork out a bit of money, though, as a guided tour of Tel Aviv typically costs somewhere between US$40+ and up to US$350 per person:

- Commit yourself to 8 hours of sightseeing on a fascinating combo tour of Tel Aviv and the adjoining ancient city port Jaffa to explore the area's eventful past and colorful present visiting the local Diaspora museum, the restored artists' quarter, the hip district of Neve Tzedek, and other exciting locations.

- Acquaint yourself up close with the “White City” on a 4-hour private tour of Tel Aviv to see what earned it a UNESCO World Heritage status, visit the city's very first neighborhood established back in 1909, the more modern international-style buildings, and more.

- Pedal your way around Tel Aviv on a 3-hour bike tour to see the city's most spectacular highlights stopping at some of them for a bit of rest, watching the surroundings, and learning interesting facts about the attractions along the way from a knowledgeable group leader.

- If you're a healthy eater, make sure to take a 3-hour guided food walk of Tel Aviv, one of the newly-emerged vegan capitals of the world, to taste your way through the city's rich vegan setting, explore the local vegan-friendly restaurants and enjoy their menu.

Day Trips

If you have a day to spare whilst in Tel Aviv, why not use it to explore some of the out-of-town destinations like Caeserea, Rosh Hanikra and Acre, Nazareth, Tiberias, and the Sea of Galilee, Masada and the Dead Sea, Petra, or Jerusalem. For as little as as circa US$90 to US$390 per person you will get a chance to discover the highlights of the UNESCO World Heritage sites, explore Israel's must-see attractions from the Mediterranean shore to the Lebanese border including the holy places of three world religions, see the settings of New Testament tales and famous parables, ancient Roman-era towns, ports and other places of significance, legendary ruins, spectacular rock-carved city, coastal plains, plus enjoy a therapeutic spa visit to the Dead Sea, and more. For any of these tours you will be picked up either straight from your hotel or a designated place in Tel Aviv, and transported either by a comfortable air-conditioned coach, private vehicle or airplane (whichever is applicable) to the destination of your choice and back again.
