Antananarivo, more commonly referred to as Tana, is the capital of Madagascar, and is known as the main access point to the island for travellers. This lively city is a former French colony and has a distinctly French feel to it. Set on twelve hills, the heart of Antananarivo is built over three levels, each connected by numerous staircases.

Previously disregarded as a worthwhile travel destination, Antananarivo has in recent years grown in popularity with travellers. It’s a wonderful city and is loved by many for its wealth of history and culture, as well as its delightful shopping opportunities and world-class cuisine that could rival Europe’s Michelin-starred restaurants, but without the high price tag. There is so much to explore in Antananarivo, it’s worth spending a couple of days there before continuing with your travels through Madagascar.
