Let's begin the tour at the highest part of Antananarivo, where the ancient part of the city is to be found, with its cobbled streets and dizzyingly steep steps. You can reach this part of the city by hiring a 2CV in Tana, which will enable you to get to the Rova, a former royal residence, and enjoy the wonderful views it has to offer. Do be aware, however, that they drive on the right here, but traffic coming from the left has priority.
Head next back down to the flat part of the main city, which has a definite yesteryear charm about it, with its Avenue de la Libération and its old, red-brick houses. This pleasant district is where the city's French residents lived in the 19th century.
