Here are a few pictures shot on our art deco tour of Havana.
We had a guide and an architectural expert on the tour, pointing out the major art deco attractions in the suburbs of Playa, Miramar and Vedado, finishing off at the Bacardi building in Old Havana. Well worth the trip if you have a morning to spare on your stay in Havana (and have an interest in some of the different architecture in the city).
