Visit This African City With Rich European Culture

Asmara-Eritrea

Travel to Africa's hidden gem, which due to years of Italian occupation and influence, earned the status of owning a rich European culture and heritage. Take a tour around the town and discover the beautiful art deco as well as the visible testament to years of fighting that led to its independence.

DAY 01

architectural tour itinerary

  • 7:30- Walk around downtown with our local Asmara guide and explore this delightful city with its authentic street coffee shops and modern architecture. 

  • 15:00- Visit the National Museum of Eritrea, which has everything from fossils and historical artefacts to science exhibits. Then proceed to the handicraft markets, where you can find the local handicraft and souvenirs at a reasonable price.

DAY 02

historical Tour itinerary

  • 8:00- Tour around the slums of Asmara, which are packed full of ramshackle huts. Then experience the Coffee Ceremony, which usually takes an hour and begins from the roasting of the coffee beans to serving the final brew.
