ULTIMATE HIGHLIGHTS OF HAVANA - OLD & NEW

Port: Havana, Cuba

Discover the remarkable history of Havana, Cuba through its massive buildings and notable structures dating back to the 15th century. Colonial Life and modern times are all part of this unforgettable tour of Cuba’s capital, Havana.

After departing from the pier, ride through Old Havana where you will have the opportunity to learn about some of the most iconic sites and the history of this charming municipality. You will have a chance to see age-old buildings such as the Iglesia de San Francisco de Paula, one of Havana's most charming churches, fully restored in 2000 and now used as a concert hall. Among the most significant buildings here, you will also see Train Central Station, the main railway terminal in Havana and the largest train station in Cuba, considered a national monument for its architectural and historical values.

At the entrance of Havana Harbor stands El Castillo De Los Tres Reyes Del Morro, built by the Spanish in 1589 and completed in 1640 to protect the city from buccaneers and pirates. In 1762, the castle was captured by the British under Sir George Pocock. Discover the military architecture of Havana from the 16th to 19th century on a visit to this historical fort.

On your way to El Cristo de La Habana, you will see another military fortress originally built to fill a weakness in the city's defenses – Fortaleza de San Carlos de la Cabaña.

Then witness the majestic representation of El Cristo de La Habana, only four decades old, which forms part of the landscape that characterizes the entrance to the Havana harbor. Standing at 65 feet tall, weighing 320 tons, consisting of 67 different pieces, and made of white Carrara marble, the monument was built in Italy by Cuban artist Jilma Madera, and inaugurated on December 25, 1958. History tells that the artist did not use a model as her inspiration but was inspired by what she felt was the definition of masculine beauty. However, legends say that she was inspired by the physique of an old lover.

On your way to the city’s famous Malecón seafront, one of the city's most meaningful and essential Cuban main roads, you will pass through the Túnel de La Habana (Havana’s Tunnel), which links the historic forts on the eastern bank with the ornate Spanish architecture in Old Havana.

From Havana Vieja to the atmospheric streets of Vedado in a comfortable air-conditioned bus you will get a view of the Nacional Hotel, the American Embassy, the University of Havana, the Christopher Columbus Cemetery and the famous corners, parks and plazas of this striking city.

Discover historical sites like the Civic Square, which was later, renamed the Revolution Square in 1959. You will also walk through the University of Havana, located in the Vedado district of Havana. This is oldest university in Cuba, founded in 1728 and one of the first to be founded in the Americas.

Our guide and expert on Cuban architecture will demonstrate the transition from Colonial to Modern times in this panoramic view of the city.

On your way back to the pier you will drive by the Green Tile House, Miramar, the Business Center, and palm tree-lined Fifth Avenue, considered one of the most beautiful avenues in Havana and initially called Avenida de las Américas, here, you will feel the pulse of the emerging economy. You’ll continue on through the Fifth Avenue Tunnel, which connects the Calzada Street, in Vedado, to the Santa Ana River in Santa Fe. The origin of this famous avenue goes back to the early 20th century as a result of the immigration of Havana’s wealthy classes to the west beyond the opening of the Almendares River.

MODERN HAVANA IN AN AMERICAN CLASSIC

Port: Havana, Cuba

Imagine driving down a street in a vintage Chevrolet, Ford, Buick, Cadillac, Mercury, Dodge, Oldsmobile or Pontiac. Usually, you only see these types of cars in museums, not in Cuba though. In Havana, the island’s capital, these are everyday cars and they have been for decades.

Transfer from the pier to Revolution Square to get your car and stop at some of the most iconic sites in Havana like the former seat of the Cuban Congress, the Capitol, which has housed the Cuban Academy of Sciences and the National Library of Science and Technology since 1959. The building’s work, which cost $17 million began in 1926, and took 5,000 workers three years, two months and 20 days to build. Many say that the structure is similar to Washington, D.C.’s Capitol Building.

You will also have a chance to visit the well-known Carlos III Street, built in 1836. The road connects the intersection of Reina and Belascoaín streets to the Castillo del Príncipe. Even though the street’s current name is Salvador Allende Avenue, the island’s residents keep referring to it as Carlos III, because of the statue of the Spanish king placed here in his honor. Here, you will also see the Veterinary Faculty of the University of Havana and the Plaza Carlos III shopping center, among others notable buildings.

Not many people think about visiting a cemetery, but according to recent reviews this is a must see stop. Founded in 1876 in the Vedado neighborhood of Havana, and the burial site of Ibrahim Ferrer Planas, one of the most famous Cuban musicians from the original Buena Vista Social Club, the cemetery has been very well maintained and the tombstones and memorials are so impressive, some even call them a works of art.

AN EVENING STROLL IN COLONIAL HAVANA

Port: Havana, Cuba

Discover Colonial Havana at night and enjoy one of the oldest and most famous bars from around the world in Havana.

Before departing the pier, you will see the historic Plaza de San Francisco de Asís, created in the 16th century when Spanish galleons stopped by at the harbor on their passage through the Indies to Spain. The plaza underwent a full restoration in the late 1990s and is most significant for its uneven cobblestones and the white marble Fuente de los Leones (Fountain of Lions) carved by the Italian sculptor Giuseppe Gaggini in 1836.

Then you will continue on to Havana’s Old Square. This architecturally eclectic square, where Cuban baroque meets Gaudí-inspired art nouveau was first built in 1559 and was originally named Plaza Nueva (New Square). The square was initially used for military exercises but later served as an open-air marketplace, where you can now also see bars, restaurants and cafes. The square has its own micro-brewery, the Angela Landa primary school, a beautiful fenced-in fountain and, on its west side, some of Havana's finest stained-glass windows. Plaza Vieja has had various uses, the last of which was an underground parking lot, but when the city of Old Havana was declared a UNESCO World.

Heritage site in 1982, the square was restored to the historic plaza it is today. While in Old Square, you will have some free time to walk around and take pictures.

Your last stop of the walking tour will be at Cathedral Square, the last of the main squares to be created in one of Old Havana’s most beautiful spots. Originally named Plaza de la Ciénaga (Swamp Square) because of its muddy terrain, it later became one of the city’s most important squares after it was drained and paved and wealthy families moved into the area and began building their mansions there.

The square’s main attraction is a Cathedral, notable for its two unequal towers and its framed theatrical baroque façade designed by Italian architect Francesco Borromini. Known as one of the oldest cathedrals in the Americas, the building was finished in 1787 when the diocese of Havana was created and the church became a cathedral.

Later on, you will take a short panoramic bus tour through the rest of Old Havana.

Your final stop for the night will be at the historical Sloppy Joe’s Bar, which re-opened in 2013 after being closed for 48 years. Many say that the well-known Sloppy Joe sandwich is an American staple, while others argue that it came originally from Cuba.

According to some, the name of the bar comes from their staple sandwich made with ropa vieja (shredded meat), which literally translates to “old clothes.” Also, many of the bar’s English-speaking customers nicknamed the owner, Jose Garcia, Joe.

The bar was frequented by many famous figures like the American novelist Ernest Hemingway, the Australian-born actor Errol Flynn and the English novelist Graham Greene.

THE LIFE OF HEMINGWAY IN HAVANA

Port: Havana, Cuba

The famous writer Ernest Hemingway once said, “I live in Cuba because I love Cuba".

After departing the pier, enjoy a 15-minute walk to La Bodeguita del Medio, made famous thanks to the rum-swilling exploits of Ernest Hemingway. This is Havana’s most celebrated bar.

Past visitors have included Salvador Allende, Harry Belafonte and Nat King Cole, all of whom have left their autographs on La Bodeguita’s wall, along with thousands of others.

Your tour continues as you walk through Obispo street to El Floridita, known as the ‘’cradle of the daiquiri’’. El Floridita was a favorite of expat Americans long before Hemingway dropped by in the 1930s, hence the name. Bartender Constante Ribalaigua invented the daiquiri soon after WWI, but it was Hemingway who popularized it and ultimately the bar christened a drink in his honor: The Papa Hemingway Special.

Afterwards, you will go to "Finca Vigía," Hemingway's house in Cuba. Finca Vigia is located in the small, working-class town of San Francisco de Paula. Built in 1886 by the Spanish Architect Miguel Pascual y Baguer, Finca Vigia was purchased by Hemingway in 1940 for a cost of $12,500. There, Hemingway wrote two of his most notable novels: For Whom the Bell Tolls and The Old Man and the Sea. A Movable Feast was written there as well.

Next you will go to Cojimar, the district where Hemingway docked his boat El Pilar. Not only did he use the town as a base for fishing, Cojimar was the background for one of his most famous works, The Old Man and the Sea. The ‘old man’ in the title is reputedly his guide Gregorio Fuentes, a Cojimar local.

You will have the opportunity to visit Las Terrezas de Cojimar, Hemingway ́s favorite restaurant in the area, as the images of the American writer who decorate the premises demonstrate.

Gregorio Fuentes inspired Hemingway to write the character of Santiago, the old fisherman protagonist of the book "El Viejo y el Mar", with whom he won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954.

At present, the Terrace of Cojimar is a place of pilgrimage among the devoted followers of the writer. Afterwards, you will return to the pier.
