One of Tel Aviv’s hidden gems. I’ve lived in the city my entire life and only discovered this place a year ago. Built by American Mormons during the 19th century, when German templers took over, the end result is 2-3 streets with old, European style houses, all restorated, renovated and extremely beautiful. There’s also one church, covered in vines that give the feeling that you’re in Tuscany, not the Middle East.
A walk through the entire neighborhood won’t take you more than half an hour. After you cross the church and the wild-west looking houses, you’ll reach a small, pretty square with a few renovated houses. You can bring a book and something to drink and spends some time there sitting on a bench. Take a peek through some of the old houses, see the old furniture inside. If you get caught peeping, it was me who sent you.
