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.
