things to do close to the Hilton

Just wondering what is close, within walking distance or a short cab ride, from the Hilton Addis? My wife and I are adopting this summer, and were wondering if it is worth walking the city? thanks for your help

Hilton hotel is situated along the road from Meskal square to the main palace. I would prefer that you walk down from Hilton to the Meskal Square. While walking I hope you will enjoy the "The African Park", "ECA-Economic commission for Africa", The second palace on the other side of the road and finally St Estifanos Church. This road is relatively quite that you can have a nice fresh air. You wont get tired because you are going down the hill.

May be at the end you can have coffee and snack at "Village Cafe" in front of St Estifanos Church, or you can also have some nice stuffs in "Square Cafe" where they also prepare foods in addition. Square cafe is my favorite since you can see what is going on the big Meskal Square.

The total distance is around less than 1 km. If you take taxi you should explore more like the national museum at least.

Have a nice trip.
