Old Jaffa, Israel. Over the years, Old Jaffa has been a fitting starting off point for our tours as we arrive at Ben Gurion Airport and stay close by in Tel Aviv our first night. So surreal to walk these stones under the starts and streetlights and imagine you have traveled back in time.
"Israel es un popurrí de opiniones internacionales, debates y especulaciones, sin embargo, con toda su cobertura, es imposible experimentar la esencia de la nación sin vivir dentro de sus fronteras." - Gili Karev, Rosa Pangea colaborador
Jaffa, Israel - The history of Jaffa is a long one. As one of the world’s oldest ports, Jaffa is thought to have been the port from which Jonah left in the story of the Whale! The port continued to be important through history, and served as the main entry point to the land of Israel through until the late 19th century when Jews from around the world began to return to Israel. It was through Jaffa that they entered the country and in Jaffa that many initially settled.
