Participants can take a stroll on the Malecón — the harbor esplanade — walk the city’s colonial cobblestone streets and ride through downtown in a vintage 1950s taxi, in addition to visiting local highlights and museums. Outside the city, the itinerary includes visits to the cities of Trinidad and Cienfuegos, both UNESCO World Heritage sites, for walking tours and activities.

The tour is led by art history professor Mary Drobny.
