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
