We will also go past El Floridita (Hemingways former haunt), the Gran Teatro de La Habana (which looks like a sandcastle and is home to the Cuban National Ballet); the Museo de la Revolución, which is housed in the former official residence for the Presidents of Cuba prior to the revolution; the heavenly Central Park (Parque Central); the art deco loveliness of the Bacardi Building (yes, the rum); Havana’s Art Museum; Calle Obispo (a street where you will want to enjoy a drink where the sun goes down), before taking in the most stunning squares you will ever see – Plaza Vieja Plaza de la Catedral, Plaza de Armas, before finishing back where you started at the Plaza San Francisco de Asis. Your unforgettable Old Havana Walking Tour will come to an end here, and your guide can suggest some fantastic options for lunch.
