DELVE INTO ISRAELI HISTORY 1

Start the weekend with a trip to Eretz Israel Museum, Tel Aviv’s temple to Israeli history and culture. It incorporates the archaeological excavations of Tel Qasile, an ancient port city dating from the 12th century BCE (eretzmuseum.org.il; 2 Chaim Levanon St, Ramat Aviv; 10am–4pm Sat–Wed, to 8pm Thu, to 2pm Fri; £9).

Jaffa is the oldest part of Tel Aviv and, in recent years, energy has gone into giving its hilltop Old City a makeover. The results, centred on Kedumim Sq, are attractive, with alleyways home to boutique hotels and galleries.
