TRAVEL FROM AIRPORT There are only two options to get to the city from the airport: Taxi and Public buses. We recommend taxi and unless you are familiar with taxi fares in Tel Aviv make sure you ask for the ride to be metered.
For those traveling internationally, when dialing any number, hold down the "0" key on your cell phone to display the "+" then enter the country code. You should drop the (0) when calling from your cell phone. So, the venue's number written as 972-3-777 4000 would be dialed as: +972-3-777 4000, Carl's number would be dialed as: +1 435 770 5369. The country code for Israel is 972, for the United States it is 1.
