    Start your tour early in the morning where your guide will meet you up at your hotel or at Mesqel Square in order to start the sight seeing tour. You will first head to the Selassie (Holy Trinity) Cathedral- Emperor Haile Selassie I built it in 1941 after the restoration of independence from the Fascist Italian occupation. Many beautiful paintings, morals and stained-glass windows decorated the interior. Then after keep walking to the National Museum of Ethiopia where Lucy-a 3.5 million years old hominid is found. Lunch at the Lucy Restaurant in Museum compound.

    At around 1pm continue your walking tour to the Ethnography Museum that displays a wide array of artifacts and daily objects relating to most ethnic groups in Ethiopia, not only the monotheistic highlanders, but also the fascinating animist cultural groups of South Omo and Afar people of the eastern desserts. After exploring the museum, you will head down to Minilik II square so as to visit the equestrian monument of Emperor Minilik II who led the Ethiopian patriots and defeated the Itailian colonizers at the battle of Adowa in 1886.
