The grace of Havana’s historic core is palpable in its picturesque plazas and palaces: Plaza Vieja, Plaza de la Catedral, Plaza de Armas, Plaza San Francisco de Asís and Palacio de los Capitanes Generales have centuries of history to share. Follow Hemingway´s footsteps by visiting the Bar Floridita, La Bodeguita del Medio and Hotel Ambos Mundos.
Lunch will be in a typical restaurant and free time is scheduled to explore the sprawling, bayside crafts market.
