Create an itinerary including Former Banco d'Italia
Former Banco d'Italia, as its name suggests, used to be the Bank of Italy, but after the occupation was abandoned and left in ruins. Today, it’s under reconstruction, with plans for the exterior to look exactly as before, as the building is converted into a luxurious suite hotel. Once completed, the hotel will offer top-end accommodation, but for now you can see the shell and admire the symmetrical design, with numerous arches, pillars, and meticulous decorations. For Former Banco d'Italia and beyond, use our Massawa driving holiday planner to get the most from your Massawa vacation.
