|Destination Airport IATA Code||ASM|
|Destination City Name||Asmara|
Eritrea s capital city Asmara is a fascinating patchwork of African, Arabic and neoclassical Italian architecture. The Italian dictator Benito Mussolini wanted to turn Asmara into the showpiece of a new Roman Empire centered in Africa in the early 1930s. Consequently, when you fly into Asmara today, you ll be greeted by one of the most Western looking towns in all of Africa, filled with cafes, bars and shops.
The Former Governor's Palace on the western end of Harnet Avenue houses the offices of Eritrea s President. Further north along the same avenue, you ll find the Asmara Central Market, where people from all over Eritrea come to buy and sell fruits, vegetables, clothes, electronics and other items. Eritrea s National Museum holds exhibits documenting traditional life in the Eritrean countryside. The areas outside Asmara are wonderful for hiking, rock climbing and mountain biking.
When you fly to Asmara, you ll arrive at the Asmara International Airport (ASM), which primarily welcomes arrivals from Cairo, Jeddah and Riyadh. Asmara has an extensive bus network and many taxicabs. Asmara is known for its warm, sunny and relatively dry climate, where daytime temperatures hover around 85 degrees throughout the year. At night, however, the temperatures can sometimes plunge to the 60s. Asmara has a significant rainy season between May and August as well.
