Day Three: Tuesday, December 31 - Discuss the historic sites and statues from Ybor ...
Discuss the historic sites and statues from Ybor City yesterday, Field Trip to Ringling Museum Complex, "New Year's Eve Cuban Style"

Note: The Ringling Museum Complex is very large, but there are many benches throughout the museum and its grounds. Up to 1.5 miles of walking is necessary to experience it all.

Breakfast: Continental breakfast in our private room.

Morning: PRESENTATION: Delve into historic sites and statues, ie, Jose Mart seen yesterday in Ybor City with Cuban expert.
FIELD TRIP: We begin our exploration as your explore at your own pace through palatial Ca' d'Zan, described as “the last of the Gilded Age mansions” to be built in America. John and Mable Ringling greatly admired the unique architectural style of the Danieli and the Bauer-Grunwald hotels in Venice, as well as palaces that face the Venetian canals. This architectural style, called "Venetian Gothic," greatly influenced the Cà d'Zan's design. A comprehensive six-year, $15 million restoration and conservation was completed on Cà d'Zan in 2002.
The Ringling complex contains numerous wonders and we move next to the Circus Museum, established in 1948. Document circuses of the past and today as you view colossal parade and baggage wagons, sequined costumes, memorabilia and artifacts documenting the history of The Ringling family circus, John Ringling as the Circus King, and the greatest circus movie, The Greatest Show on Earth, was filmed in Sarasota.
Next is the museum’s Tibbals Learning Center with an exhibition of circus posters. Ranging in size from window to barn sized, these colorful posters were plastered on buildings, walls and fences all across America and broadcasted in no uncertain terms that the circus was coming to town. The learning center also contains the world's largest miniature circus — the Howard Bros. Circus Model — a replica of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus from 1919-1938, created over a period of more than 50-years.

Lunch: We'll have lunch at Treviso, the museum's Italian restaurant.

Afternoon: FIELD TRIP: We continue the afternoon at the extraordinary Ringling Art Museum where expert guided tours are available with local docents. The incredible building housing the collection emulates the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. John Ringling engaged architect John H. Phillips to design the museum in 1925. Construction began in 1927, but was slowed almost immediately by the collapse of Florida’s land boom and later, Wall Street’s stock market crash. Financial misfortune and Mable’s death in 1929 might have ended the dream, but John Ringling instead gained a new resolve to complete the museum, borrowing money as needed, knowing that it would perpetuate the memory of his beloved Mable. The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art was officially opened to the public in 1931.
After leaving the Art Museum, explore the gardens and grounds at your leisure. All you see was given to the people of Florida, thus preserving for generations to come the exuberant lifestyle of America’s spectacular Roaring Twenties. The beautiful landscaped grounds contain over 400 species of exotic Florida trees, plants, flowers, sculpture garden figures, and Mable's historic rose garden.

Dinner: NEW YEAR'S EVE DINNER: Start the evening festivities with a New Year's Buffet Dinner.

Evening: NEW YEAR'S EVE CELEBRATION CUBAN STYLE: New Year's Eve Party with Cuban musical entertainment and Cuban traditional celebrations. Ring in the New Year with old and new friends. New Year's Eve party ends at 11:00pm. Participants may stay on their own until 12 Mid., if they prefer. Various hors d'œuvre items will be available for your enjoyment at the party along with two glasses of the following either, wine or beer or soda or water, plus a champagne toast. (A cash bar will be available at the party for any additional celebratory needs required.)
