Barefoot Havana

You'll start the day meeting the tour guide at 10 am at Central Park right in front of the monument to Jose Marti in the middle of the Square (the tour guide will meet you in the shade of the statue, Fertours will email you a photo of your tour guide). Walking by the world famous bar ¨El Floridita¨ (where Ernest Hemingway used to drink his favorite drink ¨Daiquirí¨) you’ll stroll down Obispo Street, the busiest street of Havana, full of restaurants and stores where you will feel like a local walking in the crowd.
Turning right on one corner we would walk and see some real Havana, absolutely interesting and also safe. You will walk through neighborhoods that will give you a good picture of real life, but only for a few blocks until you get to Old Square where you’ll start the tour of Old Havana. This is where you will walk San Francisco Square, Old Square, Main Square and Cathedral Square. The squares where the city was born and where the most beautiful buildings were built. It´s the time to travel in time on cobbled streets.
You’ll stop for a drink at the rooftop bar of Hotel Ambos Mundos where Hemingway lived for a number of years. The view is spectacular and it’s very relaxing to seat and chat with the tour guide to get more insights on the Cuban life.
From there you’ll keep walking and exploring Old Havana until 12:30 or 1:00 pm when you would go for lunch at a restaurant of your choice or one recommended by the tour guide. When it comes to restaurants, old Havana has a lot of choices and hidden gems that will amaze you indeed.
After lunch you will enjoy a one hour ride in one of the beautiful classic convertible cars from the 50's. You’ll say good bye to your tour guide around 3:30 or 4:00 pm having seen the best of Old Havana.
