Driving through Havana, there is no shortage of art and music, with Cuban artists representing some of the best visual and auditory visionaries in the world. Travel beyond the art galleries and explore the museum, and community projects that embrace the innovative artists who call Havana home. You will visit the Bellas Artes Fine Arts Museum to learn more about Cuban art and styles from an art expert working at the museum.

Travel to the neighborhood of Fusterlandia, where artist José Fuster has turned his community into a mosaic playground, with every inch of whimsical fantasy inspired by the works of Gaudí and Picasso. Lunch will be served at a local restaurant.

You will also visit the Muraleando community project, where local residents have used the Arts to improve their impoverished neighborhood. Centered around a 100-year-old water tank, Muraleando offers art, dance and music classes to the children of the community.

Stop at the Almacenes San José Market to enjoy free time to interact with the local artisans and vendors.
