Take the former home of a Spanish count, then turn the ground floor into a paella restaurant and bistro bar and the upper level into antique-filled bedrooms with cool marble floors.

You've just experienced a Cuban rite of passage in true habanero style. Foreign tourists usually misinterpret why this is so. The fare CUC5 is good for 24 hours, and you can jump on and off at any of 44 stops. Most shows are themed, however loosely.
