Little Rome
Having earned UNESCO World Heritage status for its abundance of Italian modernist architecture, Asmara boasts a rich history and architectural gems. According to oral tradition, four clans of the area waged war against each other until the women of each clan decided that peace can only come through unification of the tribes--hence the city's name, meaning "they made them unite" in Tigrinya. A trip to Little Rome, as the Italians called the city, reveals the most concentrated assemblage of Modernist architecture in the world, thanks to the Italian architects who used the town as an "empty canvas" during the 1930s. Soak in the atmosphere in Asmara's attractions, including museums, cathedrals, and piazzas. Plan your vacation with our Eritrea tour itinerary maker app and discover the best things to do in Asmara.
