What to expect

Like rum, cigars and vintage American cars, Ernest Hemingway is synonymous with Havana. On this tour you'll visit his homes and haunts – La Finca Vigia, Cojimar and Las Terrazas are all on the itinerary, as well as his favourite bar, La Floridita.

The fun kicks off at Finca Vigia, the elegant suburban villa that was his final Cuban retreat – it's where he wrote For Whom the Bell Tolls – and it still looks as if he'd just run out the door, with papers, books and even his typewriter in situ. Then you'll head to Cojimar, the fishing village that inspired him to pen The Old Man and the Sea.

We break for a cocktail and lunch at Las Terrazas restaurant, where he used to dine with the skipper of his yacht. Then it's on to Floridita – where an imposing statue of the man props up the end of the bar – and the Bodeguita del Medio, two of his favourite hangouts. You can bid farewell to Ernest at the Hotel Ambos Mundos, where his old room is now a mini-museum, which exhibits unmistakable traces of his presence such as empty bottles of rum and bourbon.
