With warm weather most of the year, Tel Aviv, Israel, makes for a great city to take a walking tour! From food tasting and culinary tours to history and architectural tours, the city offers something for everyone. Our friends at ISRAEL21c created a top 10 list of the best walking tours - and the first one explains why Tel Aviv's nickname is the "White City."

1. From Old Tel Aviv to the White City

In 2003, UNESCO designated Tel Aviv a World Cultural Heritage site due to its abundance of white rounded buildings constructed in the 1930s Bauhaus (International) style. These are what give Tel Aviv its nickname “The White City.”

The municipality offers a free Bauhaus architecture tour every Saturday morning at 11, starting at 46 Rothschild Boulevard at the corner of Shadal Street.

2.Tarbush tours

A choice of 11 two-hour walking tours led by comedians, actors and guides highlight the humorous side of history in some of the city’s most historic and colorful areas: Neve Tzedek, Florentin, Old Jaffa, Achuzat Bayit (Rothschild), Levinsky Market, Yemenite Quarter, American Colony, Sarona, Bialik Street, Tel Aviv Port and Hatachana (restored old Ottoman train station). Suitable for groups, families and individuals, each tour includes at least 12 stops, and is accompanied by a cart with fresh-squeezed orange juice and other refreshments.
