Bus Tours Description
Along with beautiful, award-winning beaches, St. Petersburg is home to the world-renowned Salvador Dali Museum, top-rated restaurants and beautiful Fort De Soto Park. The waterfront escape is a perfect family getaway with so much to explore! With its mix of historic architecture and modern landmarks, a culture infused with Cuban and Spanish flavors, vibrant business districts and beautiful waterways, Tampa is a wonderful place to work, play and unwind. A richly personable neighborhood of Tampa, Ybor City retains the Cuban, Italian and Spanish influences that remain from its heyday as the hub of Tampa's cigar industry, now reflected in its culture and cuisine. Just 45 minutes north of St. Petersburg and found along the shore of the Gulf of Mexico, Tarpon Springs was named for the fish found in abundance in nearby waters. But it also is known as the "sponge capital of the world," and for its 51 miles of waterfront allure. In addition, its charming downtown center is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

We leave at 6:45 AM in our bus equipped with bathroom and DVD equipment. On the way to our destination we make a stop for an exquisite breakfast at the Rinconcito Latino. Later we arrived at the city of Ybor City, a historic neighborhood in Tampa, located northeast of downtown, founded in the 1880s by Vicente Martínez-Ybor and other cigar manufacturers and was populated by thousands of immigrants, mainly from Cuba, Spain and Italy. For the next 50 years, Ybor City's cigar factory workers rolled out hundreds of millions of cigars per year. The cigar industry employed thousands of well-paid workers, helping Tampa grow from an economically depressed village to a bustling city in about 20 years and giving it the nickname "Cigar City." It is a city known for its boutiques and shops on 7th Avenue, which is also home to Cuban and Latin American restaurants. The Centro Ybor shopping center offers fast food, bars and a movie theater. We have the Ybor State Museum which has exhibits about the cigar industry and the area's immigrant communities. The GAYBOR district around 7th Avenue and 15th Street draws a diverse crowd to its bars and clubs. Later, we go to the hotel and at night visit the pier in the city of Saint Petersburg where you will have several options for dinner.
After breakfast we will depart for the city of Saint Petersburg, this city located on the Gulf coast of Florida, part of the Tampa Bay area. It is known for its pleasant climate (hence its nickname “City of the Sun”), which makes it popular for golfing, boating, fishing and going to the beach. That day we will enjoy the beach. At night we will have dinner at a Buffet with delicious Cuban food (not included in the price). Later we will go to the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
Visit to the city of Torpón Spring. After breakfast we depart to the city of Torpón Spring, the famous sponge capital of the world. In this beautiful city you can visit the miraculous chapel of San Miguel Arcángel, enjoy the delights of Greek food, visit stores that offer a variety of soaps and sponges and also learn about Greek culture in Floridian territory. At 3:00 pm we leave for Miami. You will always be guided by our tour guide who will make the trip much more enjoyable with his deep knowledge of the history of each city.
