Considered the bohemian bastion of the Tel Aviv's south end, the Florentine neighborhood of Israel's most metropolitan city is a hipster's paradise full of bars, restaurants and easy vibes.

Founded in 1921 by Greek-Jewish immigrant David Florentine, the city for decades suffered from dereliction and neglect.
But over the past few years, a wave of new investments and gentrification has transformed the neighborhood into a refuge for musicians, artists and creatives alike. 

Below you'll find great interactives to get to know this unique and vibrant neighborhood.
