Description

Explore the capital of the Dominican Republic on a full-day sightseeing tour by comfortable air-conditioned bus. An expert guide will lead you around the First City of the Americas, describing the historical facts behind the modern-day metropolis.   Encounter the Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo, the first institution of higher learning in America, and the oldest colonial building in the New World. Visit the Palace of Fine Arts, and the somber National Palace. Get off the bus to take photographs of the presidential palace, and pause for lunch at a typical restaurant. Continue to Columbus Park. Drive through a colonial neighborhood, and pay homage to the first cathedral of the Americas, birthplace of a fervent Catholic faith. Stroll down Las Damas Street, the oldest lane not only in the Dominican Republic, but in America. The Museo de la Casas Reales, formerly the Governmental Palace, has a lovely display of colonial-era artifacts, which you'll get to see. A walk across the Alcázar de Colón enraptures visitors back to the era of the first Spanish conquistadors, which you'll get to do on your wonderfully immersive day in Santo Domingo.
