I was not disappointed with Old Havana and there are a lot of things to do.
Anyway, I have not visited the Capitolo because at the time of my visit it was closed for restoration.

This visit we took a taxi from Varadero to Havana a much better way to travel, faster and more personalized. Our guide was able to take us through the four plazas and explain all of the differences. Lots of beautiful buildings, lots of activity on the streets, mix of tourists and locals, yes some offering services others begging, our guide told us just to be polite and say no thank ypu. It did work. We spent about 3 hours walking around and I believe that we saw a lot. As for the New Havana that we did as a drive hrough as lmited parking.

A half day bus and walking tour of Vieja Habana was not enough. So many museums to see, art galleries to browse, people to watch, parks to ponder. The area is so intriguing with varied architecture, old American cars, lovely parks, and inviting walks. Can't wait to return and spend more time.

Many of the old colonial buildings was nicely restored. The streets were filled by a mix of American cars from the 1950´ies and more modern cars. Nice people.

We did the 12 hour Bus Tour to Havana. Our guide was Jorge and he was incredible.
There was no question that he did not have the answer to.
Very informative and interesting. We toured the Old section of Havana ( Walking Tour)
and we had lunch in town, went to a Cigar store, and had some free time at the end.
Be prepared to bring cash as there are no places to take debit/credit.
