One of Ethiopia’s greatest treasures, Aksum is the country’s oldest city and was the seat of power of the Axumite Empire. The remains of the city remain as a testimony to its past glory and the unmatched talent of the artists and sculptors.

The UNESCO World Heritage listed site of Lalibela is an obligatory stop on the Christian pilgrimage circuit. The monolithic churches at Lalibela, hewn out of a cliff, are counted among the splendid attractions of Ethiopia. Notable among them is the Church of St. George, named after Ethiopia's patron saint.

World Heritage–listed site Harar is home to as many as 82 mosques within its 16th-century crumbling walls. Among the diminutive 368 alleyways are animated markets, coffee shops and more than a hundred shrines. Harar is also a convenient base to explore the Somaliland.
