Modern Havana, the most interesting places to visit are the neighborhoods of Vedado and Miramar, is the residential area of Havana. Their facades (transformed by time) tell the story of a city that was thought to be the mecca of gaming and entertainment almost from the start of construction in the last century, giving the viewer the old glamor of the 30s accompanied by the comings and goings of its people.
From a classic car of the 50s we take the path that leads to Miramar, the chic neighborhood of Havana, with its beautiful mansions and Quinta Avenida (Fifth Avenue), the main street of the neighborhood.
Stop at the Parque Gandhi (Gandhi Park), also known as the Park Jagüeyes, impressive Indian garden in the city center.

We continue with a panoramic tour of the Nuevo Vedado, outside the cementerio de Colón (cemetery of Columbus), world heritage by the value of his works.
Stop at the Plaza de la Revolución (Revolution Square), a place that governs the fate of an entire country, where Fidel Castro delivered his long speeches and where the portrait of Che continues to call the attention of tourists and Cubans.
Then we entered the university district walking around the front of the steps of the Universidad de La Habana (University of Havana), magnificent neoclassic building. Across the la calle 23 (street 23), the most visited city for its cinemas, theaters and clubs, we passed the Coppelia ice cream metropolis in Cuba, frequented by locals.
