Founded 120 years ago by Emperor Menelik II, Addis Ababa has developed strong architectural traditions of its own. The Piazza City Guide will take you along three walking tours designed to explore the city's early architecture. The first two tours are set in the old economic center, the city's early mall. They follow the pace of Addis Ababa's first builders and craftsmen, stop at major historical landmarks, and explain some of the forgotten vernacular architecture. The third tour wanders north of Piazza in a quiet neighborhood rich in beautiful villas whose owners were involved in major historical events. Be ready to discover a little-known architecture born from the multiple cultural influences that made the capital of Ethiopia
