Read as much as you can before you go or, even better, try to find a local for a tour. There is so much history here and so many great stories to be told but if you don't read and understand Hebrew, it is just a pretty place to walk around. Reminds me of Trinity Church cemetery in NYC.

There's something about cemeteries that draws me in...Old Cementary in Tel Aviv is filled with the history of its people contained in this small, well-maintained place. City streets and homes enclose the cementary on all sides,life and death are side by side. The architecture of these stones are as varied as the people they mark. A experience to remember. I...

Sure a few of us thought about the first foundations of the city of Tel-Aviv and othere known people. If you want to know where they are - go to the Old Cemetery in Tel-Aviv and you will see all the most known names

As somebody said,, all the "streets" of Tel Aviv can be found here, and other famous residents, too. But the most moving part are the graves of all the unknown soldiers who died in local battles in the War of Indpendence. Young boys and girls who went into the army, literally, right off of the ship. There was no system... More

Best to take the guided tour - and get the one that spells out all the juicy stuff of early tel aviv days: the romance, the drama, the artists' cafe's and the stories of Alexander Penn

The cemetery on Trumpeldor Street contains many of the founding father and mothers of the city. It is small but filled with stories. Admittedly I'm prejudiced because I do have a few relatives there.

What an interesting place to visit. But I must add that what made this meaningful to me was that we went with a wonderful guide whose knowledge about the place and the people buried there was invaluable. She had stories to go with the information and after all was said and done it gave us great insight into the many... More
