After pick-up from your hotel, ride through the sites of modern Panama City on your way to the Colonial City or "Casco Antiguo."  Built in 1673, the Colonial City has Spanish architecture.  Driving through the stretched streets, plazas and public parks that still conserve part of the history, you will experience the flavor of this rich heritage.  Experience more of the city's history and culture as you pass Plaza Francia, Las Bovedas, San Jose Church with its wonderful gold altar, the Flat Arch and Cathedral Church.  It is here that French workers initiated the Panama Canal project and where many homes are built in a French style or architecture.

After lunch at a prestigious local restaurant, you will visit the ruins of Old Panama, destroyed by the pirate Sir Henry Morgan in 1671.  The tour goes to Colonial Panama or Old Quarters, Palacio de las Garzas (official office of the Panamanian President) and will pass through the Balboa area before heading to the Miraflores Locks of the Panama Canal.   You will be able to watch the functioning of the Canal from its best spot. The tour includes a visit to the new Visitors Center.

Finally you will visit the Amador Causeway where you will be able to shop in the duty frees before heading back to your hotel in the afternoon.
