Old Town Tours

Old Town is St. Augustine’s first community and the link to its 16th century origins. Remarkably preserved, this enclave is resplendent with architectural landmarks and beautiful gardens. Fascinating shops, galleries and accommodations are found here too. The narrow brick streets and walkways, stone walls, and overhanging balconies maintain a distinctly European ambience.
