Called the "White City" thanks to the color of its World Heritage-listed architectural landmarks, Tel Aviv serves as Israel's modern and cosmopolitan second city.
When in Tel Aviv, make a side trip to see Caesarea National Park in Caesarea, approximately Caesarea away. There's much more to do: take a stroll through Jaffa Old City, go all around town with City Tours, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and admire the masterpieces at Tel Aviv Museum of Art.

To see photos, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Tel Aviv tour builder site.

Auckland, New Zealand to Tel Aviv is an approximately 30- hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus, shuttle, and flight; or do a combination of bus and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 10 hours traveling from Auckland to Tel Aviv. Traveling from Auckland in December, you can expect nighttime temperatures to be little chillier in Tel Aviv, with lows of 14°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 16th (Mon) so you can go by car to Tiberias.
