General

Havana is too audacious, too contradictory, but it is also too beautiful. Maybe it is the heroic history, the survivalist spirit or the untiring salsa energy that emanates from the people. On this popular tour, an expert guide takes you to the most interesting cultural and historical sites in the capital, including Old Havana, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982.

This city tour starts with a scenic bus ride through the residential Miramar district, with its distinct architectural style. Largely constructed in the 1950s for Havana’s very rich, it’s distinguished by broad, elegant avenues lined with ostentatious villas.

Next stop is the Plaza de la Revolución, one of the capital’s most emblematic sites. This is followed by a look at the University of Havana and the neoclassical Capitol building. The Capitolio is perched on the edge of Old Havana, from where the tour continues on foot. The historic and colonial center is an open air museum of architecture, art and culture – a real treat for history and culture buffs.  Thanks to a meticoulus restauration program, Old Havana is crowded with well preserved historical relics. Places like Plaza de la Catedral,

Plaza de San Francisco de Asís, Plaza Vieja, Plaza de Armas, El Templete, Avenida el Puerto, Palacio de los Capitanes Generales (City Museum), and Hotel Ambos Mundos will be visited. This city tour is what we call a panoramic tour, since you’ll see all the landmarks mentioned, though not necessarily enter each one.Thanks to the knowledgeable guides and careful planning, this makes a perfect introduction to Havana.  If there are any specific sites you would like to visit, this can be done an individual basis.
