Sometimes adored, sometimes criticized, Tel Aviv, the white city, has no use for what to say. Oriental, cosmopolitan, pious, secular, full of sweetness, insolent and messy, she only aspires to live with all her drunkenness, accumulating paradoxes without cluttering herself with complexes. It must be said that its assets are numerous, starting with its almost permanent sunshine, the 14 km of beaches that surround it and allow a soothing Mediterranean wind to penetrate the interior of the city or Hayarkon Park and its 500 hectares of greenery. Although attached to a country at war, the destination cultivates a lightness and a deep sense of tolerance, a carefree attitude, which pushes its inhabitants to stroll, seduction and celebration, carried by a bubbling creative energy that never sleeps and which is found in art, fashion and cinema. The Tel Aviv tour guide will take the traveller from old Jaffa to the new port, from Neve Tzedek's bohemian to Sheinkin's frivolities, from Dizengoff's commercial ambitions to Florentine's artistic aspirations. As many atmospheres as there are neighbourhoods. But in the end, Tel Aviv owes its uniqueness above all to its inhabitants, who are joyful and disarmingly natural.
