    Tourdescription About the audio tour

As you stroll through its streets you will feel the positive vibes that ooze from the unique designer shops and from the fashionable cafes and restaurants. To uncover the magnificent history of Gan HaHashmal neighborhood follow this DIY tour that will unveil the intriguing stories that lie dormant in each stylish building that you see. A luxury neighborhood turned into a slum is now being rediscovered as the most electrifying place in Tel Aviv - by you!
