Casco Viejo Walking Tour allows you to truly see this neighborhood with the help of a guide. Most people get lost in its myriad of streets and alleys which are surrounded by beautiful architecture. Your guide will be able to take you around this historic neighborhood to see its beautiful plazas and churches. Travel back in time while listening to the stories and histories this neighborhood has to tell.
The Casco Viejo Walking Tour has two options: pickup and drop off in a hotel in Panama City or meeting the guide directly in Casco Viejo. This tour will take you through Plaza Herrera, Plaza Bolivar, Plaza de Francia and Las Bovedas, and Plaza Catedral. See important places such as the National Theatre, Panama’s Presidential Palace, and the Bolivar Palace. You will also visit the Convent of Santo Domingo with its famous flat arch, San Jose Church with its golden altar and the Metropolitan Cathedral.
During your Casco Viejo Walking Tour you will have the opportunity to visit craft stores. Those who get hungry can eat at one of the ice cream parlors in the neighborhood, cafeterias or restaurants. Food is not included in the tour. This tour complements quite well with the El Chorrillo Walking Tour to see other parts of the area.
