Israel : Tel Aviv+Jerusalem

Share...

Preface : I categorized Tel Aviv+Jerusalem in “3 days” category, because you need only 3 days to see those beautiful and important places. However, if you see Tel Aviv’s beach, you will be tempted to spend at least 7 days there.

In my opinion for
Tel Aviv

THE FIRST AND THE SECOND DAY

How to get to Tel Aviv from Ben Gurion Airport :
I suggest, that you just simply take public transportation, because it’s really cheap and you will get to your hotel almost the same as taking a taxi! ….I am about to tell you how.

You take a train from Ben Gurion Airport towards Nahariya and get out at Tel Aviv – HaHagana Station. From this station, you can take a bus to the city. It depends on which part. For further information, you can check at DAN.

FYI, you need to pay for train and bus in Shekel, so I suggest that you exchange just 10 Euro or Dollar or Pound at the airport. That’s enough to get you to the city.
