Addis Ababa City Tours Ethiopia

Ethiopia’s capital city is more than a mere stopover for travelers en route to the country’s ruins and spectacular mountains. It’s a sweet muddle of what makes this country so fascinating: ancient history and religion, a distinct ethnic and international flair. Take in the amazing jazz scene, spilling out of trendy cafes and bars that also serve some of the best coffee in the world; or the hidden boutiques where you can shop for traditional shawls and baskets; and then there’s the National Museum, home to 3.2 million-year-old ‘Lucy’ and a melee of other treasures.
