$2,037.87 $1,778.82

Addis Ababa, known to locals as just “Addis,” is a quickly-evolving city whose recent economic growth is one of Africa’s greatest success stories. Founded just over one hundred years ago, the capital is a multifaceted city that towers 2,400 meters above sea level on the Abyssinian plateau. There isn’t a cloud in the sky for about eight months out of the year, and the warm sun beats down on culturally-stimulating museums, world-class restaurants, fashionable boulevards and hip clubs. The city has many surprises up its sleeve, ready to impress even the most well-traveled visitors.

  • Going through the historic districts of the capital, climb Mount Entoto, which stands high above the city at 3200m altitude. That’s where, it is said that Emperor Menelik decided to create Addis Ababa “New Flower” in Amharic. We’ll visit the modest palace of the great Menelik II and the museum.
  • Coming back from Entoto we’ll make a stop at the SheroMeda Market, where we can find all the traditional Ethiopian fabrics.
  • Lunch at Lucy restaurant.
  • We’ll visit next the Archaeological Museum, breathtaking panorama of the history of Ethiopia, from the first works of art of the Axumite kingdom to the reign of Menelik II. Here is also the famous Lucy skeleton. The highlight of the extensive collection is Lucy, the famously-fossilized hominid dated at 3.2 million years old. Four main exhibition sections nearly overflow with artistic treasures, historic artifacts and cultural gems, including memorabilia from former rulers, ethnographic displays and archaeological finds from throughout the country.
  • Then visit of the Holy Trinity Cathedral built by Emperor Haile Selassie in the heart of historic district of Piazza, where the Negus now rests.
  • Finally, we can delve into the spirit of Addis Ababa at the Mercato, a huge open-air market nearly overflowing with aromatic spices, handmade carpets, vibrant cloths and authentic artwork. You can find everything from souvenirs to weapons there, and bargaining is welcome and expected by the sellers.
