    Tel Aviv? Israel has yellow license plates and is recently in the spotlight.

    Edit: Skyscraper complex on the left looks like Azrieli Center.

    Could be. The building on the right seems to have a stylised seven (or nine?) armed candelabrum.

    Your hint was very helpful.



    EDIT:

    Ok, hint - The structure on the picture overlooks VERY old city. Guess the name of the city.

    Hint 2 - Very old and continuously inhabited.

    Jericho. And once I guessed that, it was not so difficult to identify the structure: Monastery of the Temptation of Christ on Mount Temptation.

    @sonny. Not that far from Tel Aviv indeed.

    Thank you.

    This should not be very difficult. I was a passenger on that little boat in the background, by the way.

    Well I gave enough time to others to jump in

    That must be Messina, with a view on the Stretto di Sicilia. The church in the center right is the Duomo di Messina

    Not unsurprisingly, our Italian friend is right.
    Messina it is and the Duomo, and especially the Bell tower with it's moving golden mechanical figures are probably the most recognizable features of the picture.

    Also posted this because it's the birthplace of Vincenzo Nibali, who is well on his way to winning this years Tour de France with an impressive margin.

    Your turn, son. Rep is coming as soon as I spread some (again)
