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 depart 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 the city center, founded in the 1880s by Vicente Martínez-Ybor and other cigar makers and was populated by thousands of immigrants, mainly from Cuba, Spain and Italy. Over the next 50 years, workers at the Ybor City cigar factories launched hundreds of millions of cigarettes per year. The cigar industry employed thousands of well-paid workers, which helped Tampa grow from an economically depressed village to a bustling city in approximately 20 years and gave it the nickname of "Cigar City." It is a city known for its boutiques and shops on 7th Avenue, which also houses Cuban and Latin American restaurants. The Centro Ybor shopping center offers fast food, bars and a cinema. We have the Ybor State Museum that has exhibits about the cigar industry and immigrant communities in the area. The GAYBOR district around 7th Avenue and 15th Street attracts a diverse crowd to its bars and clubs.In the afternoon we will enjoy a delicious dinner. In the evening we will visit the Hard Rock of Tampa and later we will have free time to enjoy the City nightlife.
After breakfast we leave for Tarpon Springs, the Greek city in Florida known for its stores where a variety of soaps and sponges are offered. It is also known as the world capital of sponges. Here we will have dinner included in a Greek restaurant so you can enjoy that excellent Mediterranean food.We also offer (not included in the price) a boat ride to enjoy sponge fishing.
After breakfast we will depart to the city of St. Petersburg, this city located on the coast of the Gulf of Florida, part of the Tampa Bay area. It is known for its pleasant climate (hence its nickname "Ciudad del Sol"), which makes it popular for playing golf, boating, fishing and going out on the beach. We continue with the visit to the Salvador Dalí museum located on the waterfront in downtown St. Petersburg, on 5th Avenue Southeast, Bay Shore Drive and Dan Wheldon Way, whose museum is dedicated to the works of Salvador Dalí and houses the largest collection of works by Dalí outside Europe. Then we will have free time to enjoy the beautiful views that the city offers us. At 3:00 pm we leave for Miami.
