Havana, Cuba, is the Rome of the New World, a city that exhibits nearly every phase of cultural, artistic, and architectural development since the early 16th-century in a rich and sensuous manner. With very little development over the last 50 years, modern growth has not transformed or destroyed the historic city, allowing visitors to see in great detail what few New World cities have been able to sustain. Havana is also a thriving creative center with music, art, and entertainment as central staples of its contemporary culture. The Fairfield University tour of Havana will introduce visitors to the rich panorama of Cuban art, architecture, and culture.
