The Florentin Urban Culture & Graffiti Tour
Explore Southern Tel Aviv’s bohemian Neighborhood with Guy as he deciphers the “writing on the walls” – street signs, graffiti and bumper stickers filled with Hebrew gems and insights into contemporary Israeli culture. Leave your grammar textbooks at home for this tour. With his marker and whiteboard in hand, Guy breaks down complex verbs, colloquial expressions and witty slang while teaching the history of this bustling and dynamic neighborhood. Stops include hidden alleyways, a nearly century-old Synagogue, and gritty workshops, where participants will have the opportunity to interact with locals.
Some content might not be appropriate for a younger crowd. Please ask Guy about family tours.
