Asmara

— 5 nights

Little Rome

Having earned UNESCO World Heritage status for its abundance of Italian modernist architecture, Asmara boasts a rich history and architectural gems.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Former Imperial Palace and Old railway station. Explore Asmara's surroundings by going to Qohaito (in Debub Region) and Metera (in Senafe). And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Fiat Tagliero, take in the spiritual surroundings of Cattedrale di Asmara, and don't miss a visit to Liberation Avenue (also called Harnet Ave).

To see other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Asmara trip maker website.

Kyiv (Kiev), Ukraine to Asmara is an approximately 20.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Kyiv (Kiev) to Asmara. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.

Little Eritrea boasts diverse landscapes that include mountains, an arid coastline, and fertile swathes of land to the west. With tourism in Eritrea still a burgeoning industry, the country represents a place of adventure for daring travelers looking to get of that beaten path. The Art Deco architecture of the capital shows off the cultural complexity and interesting facets of the former Italian colony's recent history, while a number of archaeological sites provide evidence of once-thriving ancient kingdoms. The country gained independence from Ethiopia in 1993, but the areas bordering Sudan, Ethiopia, and Djibouti remain dangerous and, as a result, off the map for most foreign tourists.
