Une ligne de chemin de fer reliait Asmara a Massawa avec plus de 30 tunnels et 65 ponts. la ligne a ete rouverte partiellement pour les touristes en 2003..The old italian railway, which climbed from Massawa 2128 m up the escarpment to Asmara, passing trough 30 tunnels and 65 bridges is a masterpiece of civil engineering. At the end of the war, Eritreans pulled the old railway workers, metal forgers and blacksmiths out of retirement, called for volunteers and set to work. The great line reopened in 2003 and ranks among the world's great scenic railways.
