Details of the stay: Express stopover in Havana - 3 days

Day 1 : From Malecón to Vedado

Once the luggage has been dropped off at the hotel or in your particular casa, head for Le Malecón for a short walk at sunset to soak up the unique atmosphere of Havana, so sensual at dusk time. We continue with a mojito tasting in a trendy bar in the Vedado, before choosing one of the very good restaurants in the area for dinner. A good night's rest will then be welcome! For the others, go to the Fábrica de Arte Cubano or the Gato Tuerto to get a little wiggle.

Day 2 : Habana Vieja and Plaza de la Revolución

We will start the day with a visit to the Habana Vieja Discover the old historic centre classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, walk through the picturesque cobbled streets, visit the Baroque palaces, museums and the unmissable monumental squares of Plaza Vieja, Plaza de Armas and Plaza de la Catedral. We can plan a lunch on the latter, in a superb historical setting. In the afternoon, direction Plaza de la Revolución to take some pictures of this mythical square, then visit the Museum of the Revolution. The less tired will push to the mythical Tropicana cabaret for a sensual show.

Day 3 : Centro Habana and Miramar

On this last day in the Cuban capital, the visit will focus on the Centro Habana district: its famous Chinese barrio (Chinatown), the national capitol and the central park, followed by a visit to the Partagas cigar factory. If the weather permits, we will visit the very chic Miramar district to visit the excellent Compay Segundo house-museum, star of the Buena Vista Social Club
