All the terminals are suitable for use by passengers with disabilities. There are good transport links from the airport with taxis and buses running services to Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa and a new train link to Tel Aviv. There is plenty of parking available at Ben Gurion and a bus link between the airport and car parks.

About Tel Aviv

Stretched along the Mediterranean, Tel-Aviv is Israel's largest city and biggest commercial centre. Founded in 1909 during the times of the Ottoman (Turkish) empire rule over Palestine, Tel Aviv was actually born out of Jaffa, then the main port city. The hard living conditions in Jaffa drove a group of Jewish newcomers to move out of Jaffa, establishing the first neighbourhood of the new Tel Aviv. The influx of Jewish immigrants from Europe in the years 1924-1939 has boosted Tel Aviv as a major city.

Must See in Tel Aviv

Less than a century old, Tel Aviv is about finance, business and fun - it's pretty hard to compete with Jerusalem's three millennia of history, so Tel Aviv doesn't even try.

Tel Aviv is home to over 5000 Bauhaus buildings - the largest concentration in one city in the world, which has earned it the title "World Heritage Site" by UNESCO. "The white city" is named so in account of the bright colours of the building style.

For a different side to the city, then visit The "Yamenese Vineyard" quarter. It is a different kind of Tel Aviv, an old remnant of a lifestyle that has today mostly disappeared. With century old housing in narrow alleys, shady gardens and traditional restaurants its a place of calm amongst the hustle and bustle of the city. The old city of Jaffa is within easy reach and with its art galleries, flea market, antique shops and restaurants, Jaffa is a pleasant place to stroll and relax.

A broad expanse of fine sand extends more than ten kilometres (six miles) along the seashore. As well as having a multitude of attractions of its own, Tel Aviv is well-placed as a base for day trips to Jerusalem and Caesarea, while even the Dead Sea and the Galilee are within a two-hour drive of the city.
