Discovering the city of Havana

Around Havana

Today we will spend the day discovering the places and history of the Cuban capital. The alternatives are many, our tour certainly cannot miss a stop at the Plaza de la Revolución where the faces of two very famous revolutionaries such as Che Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos stand out and where the majestic memorial to Jose Martì stands , another fundamental figure for the independence of the Caribbean island. From there we will be able to leave the city centre a little further to reach the very particular neighbourhood of Fusterlandia created by the artist Josè Fuster, where we will feel like we are entering a fairy tale while we will be surrounded by thousands of colourful mosaics.

The magic of Old Havana

As we make our way back to the heart of the city, get ready to immerse yourself in the enchanting atmosphere of Habana Vieja. This entire neighbourhood is a UNESCO World Heritage site, brimming with photographic opportunities at every turn.

From the iconic pre-revolution American cars to the historic landmarks like the hotels that hosted extravagant parties during American prohibition and the Bacardi palace where the renowned Rum was invented, there's no shortage of captivating sights to capture. As we wander through the cobblestone streets, we'll encounter the Payret cinema, the legendary Floridita restaurant, and so much more.

After soaking in the colonial charm of Plaza de Armas, Plaza Vieja, and Plaza de la Catedral, it's time to unwind with a refreshing mojito at the iconic Bodeguita del Medio—a favourite haunt of literary giants like Ernest Hemingway and Pablo Neruda.

But our exploration doesn't end there! For those still eager to discover, a visit to the nearby Morro Castle promises panoramic views of the city and a spectacular sunset.
