Start your morning with a short ride in a horse drawn carriage to visit Havana Vieja, the historic colonial heart of the city. The tour then continues on foot and covers the four most important squares, each of which has its own character and history. The Plaza de Armas has a peaceful atmosphere with thick, tropical vegetation sheltering an antique book market and baroque palaces surrounding the square. The Plaza de San Francisco has some impressive commercial buildings, such as the Old Stock Exchange and Customs House, however the main attraction is the Basilica de San Francisco, which dates back to 1580. Plaza Vieja is surrounded by pastel coloured townhouses and is almost completely restored. Finally, the Plaza de la Catedral is home to the exceptionally beautiful Catedral de San Cristobal, as well as important examples of early colonial architecture.

All the squares are linked by historic streets such as Calle Obispo, which are like open-air museums containing historic shops, vintage car museums and even a chocolate factory. Old hotels such as the Ambos Mundos can be visited, where Hemmingway wrote 'For Whom the Bells Tolls'.
