Ybor city was built by Cuban, Spanish, Italian and Jewish immigrants looking for a better life. And it was here, in the town built by the world’s largest cigar factory, the people found freedom, hope and prosperity.
On this solo walking tour, you’ll discover Ybor’s Cuban, Jewish, Spanish and Italian past. You’ll see the historic buildings, the best and most historic restaurants, learn why the chickens run free, how the people of Ybor helped Cuba fight for independence, see the land owned by Cuba, hear about the Cubano’s immigrant history, and learn the story of its people. Join me on a historic walk, and if you’re hungry grab a Cubano. Or two. I’ll meet you at the Cuban Club in Ybor.
