Art tours

Israel’s art scene is vibrant, nuanced, and among the most innovative in the world. But do not confine yourself to the amazing museums, such as the Tel Aviv Museum of Contemporary Art or the world-famous Israel Museum. We find art in the streets and in the markets. Join a Graffiti tour in Florentine or walk the Machane Yehuda market at night, when it transforms in to an inspiring art gallery.

A visit to the Design Museum in Holon is also a must. Experience as well Israel’s internationally acclaimed dance companies. Attend a performance of Batsheva, Inbal, or the Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company.
