Asmara is the relaxed and enchanting capital of Eritrea. The city is a jewel of art-deco and Italian colonial architecture and one can enjoy a cappuccino from the old chrome espresso machines everywhere in the caf├Ęs along the streets. In addition to the Italian influence the city has many mosques and oriental markets, even the odd jewish synagogue. Gardens are a riot of jacaranda, hibiscus and bougainvillea blooms and the city remains uncrowded and safe. Asmara has many lively bars and nightclubs and the city is primarily designed for la dolce vita and relaxing.
