Allenby Street was named in honor of General Edmond Allenby who liberated Israel from the Ottomans during the First World War. It is one of the first streets built in Tel Aviv, and it was called “Derech ha Yam”.
With Herzl Street and Nahalat Benyamine, Allenby Street has, over time, acquired the character of a shopping street and housing, with businesses occupying the lower floors and houses at the top of the buildings.
1 • Shenkin Street – Just a few steps away is Tel Aviv’s youthful street symbol, free and open. In Shenkin you can enjoy street entertainment, shop at trendy boutiques, enjoy various cultural events and Tel Aviv’s best restaurants.
2 • Rothschild Avenue – Nothing more “Tel Aviv” than an evening stroll on the largest and most famous avenue in Tel Aviv. Throughout the avenue and in the adjacent small streets are historical and cultural sites such as the Ha-Bima Theater, restaurants, shops and art galleries.
3 • Carmel Market – Shuk Ha-Carmel – Smell, Flavor and Color Blend with Market Sounds! Nothing like a walk in its paths to find fresh and fragrant bread, fruit and vegetables of absolute freshness and a multitude of small typical restaurants.
4 • Nahalat Benyamine – The multitude of booths, colors and styles make the walkers’ heads turn to the renowned artist fair in Israel and around the world. All along the pedestrian street that adjoins the carmel market, fabric stores, restaurants and designer boutiques.
