MODERN AND COLONIAL HAVANA TOUR
Havana City is the Capital, without a doubt, the tourism destination of excellence. Within the city, its historic center (considered by UNESCO World Heritage in 1982) is an obliged reference destination for all visitors who come to this city. Visitors to Old Havana can admire the ongoing restoration works that are giving back splendor to the colonial quarter and its main monuments: the Real Fuerza Castle-the oldest fort in America; the Havana Cathedral, a most notable example of baroque architecture.
This city tour is also called a panoramic tour, since you’ll see all the landmarks mentioned, though not necessarily enter each one. Thanks to knowledgeable guides and careful planning, this makes a perfect introduction to Havana.
If you divide the capitol in two parts, you will get Old Havana, largely car-free so you will visit this part on foot. This historic and colonial center is an open air museum of architecture, art and culture – a real treat for history and culture buffs. The other half is called modern Havana, but certainly not less interesting, just very urban and genuine, with definitely historical toppers, although from a later era.
Listed on the agenda, in random order: Plaza San Francisco de Asís - Plaza de la Catedral - Plaza Vieja - Plaza de Armas - Palacio de los Capitanes Generales (City Museum) - Capitol - Parque Central - Bar-restaurant Floridita and Bodeguito del medio - University of Havana - Plaza de la Revolución (Revolution Square) and the boulevard Malecón.
The Parque Morro- Cabaña was one of the greatest defenses ever built by the Spaniards in what was then called the New World. The fort is on the other side of Havana Bay and offers spectacular views over the city.
So you see that you can witness a lot in just 3 hours, and after this orientation… you revisit the landmarks of your interest at your own pace and with your own compass.
