Cuba: Santiago, Camaguey, Trinidad and Havana: Trail of the Revolution

Travel with Peter Kornbluh and experience the magic of Cuba’s stunning colonial cities, verdant countryside, and historic sites, as well as the bustling capital of Havana.

Join us on this new nine-night tour as we follow the trail of the Cuban Revolution on an exciting journey that takes us from Santiago de Cuba to Havana, with visits to Camagüey, Trinidad, and a very special stop at the Bay of Pigs. This rich program includes meetings with artists, musicians, architects, educators, historians, urban planners, economists, and more. We’ll learn about the Cuban Revolution from experts at some of its most pivotal locations, including the Moncada Barracks, the site of the first armed assault by Fidel Castro and his band of rebels on July 26, 1953. We’ll also visit the final resting place of national hero José Marti and we’ll experience the vibrant art and music scene that helps define the island’s lively culture.
