With its peeling Spanish buildings, 1950s American cars and cigar-chomping locals, Havana looks and feels like something from a movie set. And this tour immerses you in the capital's charms. Among the sites visited are Old Havana, Revolution Square, Colono Cemetery and the Vedado district.
You'll be guided through the crumbling old town, a UNESCO-protected, 500-year old quarter riddled with cobbled streets and plazas, and baroque churches. Next, head to the harbour, from where Spanish galleons laden with New World treasures departed. Another highlight is New Havana, where you'll see Revolution Square – site of the massive public rallies held by Fidel Castro. It's dominated by a towering monument to national hero, José Marti, and a giant bronze mural of the face of Che Guevara.
See also the Malecon promenade, the Colon Cemetery and the Vedado district, which is home to some gems of early and mid-20th century architecture in Cuba, with neoclassical, art nouveau and art deco buildings.
