We will embark on a short 'get acquainted' tour of Tel Aviv. The main places of attraction in Tel Aviv include Herzl Street, Tel Aviv's first boulevard; the Carmel Shuk (marketplace) - a bustling open air bazaar filled with spicy and mysterious aromas and lots of colorful wares for sale. Nearby is the "Greenwich Village" of Tel Aviv - Shenkin Street. Also nearby is one of the oldest roads in Tel Aviv - the famous Allenby Street. Drive to the Palmach Museum.

The Palmach Museum is an experiential museum, covering the Palmach legacy through the stories of individuals and groups. Visitors to the museum join the group of young Palmach recruits from its establishment, and advanced through the story of the Palmach until the end of the War of Independence. The manner of presentation is extremely innovative. There are no displays or documents, but rather an account of a fascinating personal story accompanied by three-dimensional decor, films and various effects incorporating documentary materials.

The visit, which is conducted in groups, correlates with the structure of the presentation, set out as a series of events, and symbolizing the Palmach team spirit.

The tour commences and ends in the memorial hall for Palmach warriors who died fighting for establishment of the state of Israel.

Drive along the well-known Rothschild Boulevard, where you can see excellent examples of Bauhaus Architecture from the 1930's, some of which have been recently beautifully restored. Pass by Independence Hall, located in the house of Meir Dizengoff, the first Mayor of Tel Aviv. Here David Ben Gurion, the First Prime Minister, announced the Declaration of Independence on May 14th, 1948.

Whether you call it Bauhaus or International Style architecture, Tel Aviv is still the only city in the world that houses such a large collection of buildings designed in this style. Many have been recently meticulously renovated and restored. This style of building evolved in Germany in the 1920's, came to an abrupt end (in Germany) with the Nazi's rise to power and continued to develop in the U.S. and elsewhere. In Tel Aviv of the 1930's, Bauhaus architecture flourished, as is evidenced by many of the wonderful buildings that line the city's streets. The "White City of Tel Aviv" has been designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage site.

Drive to the Ayalon Insitute, visit the first underground bullet factory that was the first Israeli Military Industry.
