Curator’s statement

Tel Aviv is a magical city filled with beautiful people, incredible food and a rich culture. It is truly a melting pot of so many different cultures, people and places. Tel Aviv is the cool younger sibling to Jerusalem, much more laid-back and relaxed. One of the best ways to explore this Mediterranean hub is by visiting some of the world-renowned restaurants and connecting with the locals.

Beaches: Pick a beach any beach…they are all stunning and connected by the city-long boardwalk. Spend a day walking from beach to beach, or grab an e-scooter and ride down the tayelet.

Shop local at the Carmel shuk (market) or the Jaffa flea market.

Get lost in art galleries GALORE: RawArt Gallery and SAGA gallery are great for up-and-coming artist exhibitions.

Coffee / breakfast

Salene Freitag: The best bagels and lox in Tel Aviv.

Bread & Co.: For the most delicious skillets, an awesome pastry or snacks before the beach. The Greek pan is my favorite egg skillet, but don't skip their pre-made dips.
