Ajami

Beach umbrellas dot the shore that forms the border around Ajami's markets and preserved palaces.

Just south of one of the world's oldest ports, Ajami's restored limestone palaces and beachside promenades soak up the Mediterranean sun. Some overlook this corner of Jaffa, but local families know its sloping streets are the place to buy fresh falafel for an impromptu picnic in Hamidron Park.
