Historic Sites in Cebu City: 1-Day Itinerary

Cebu is greatly blessed with a variety of historical events that have made it one of the key places of our Philippine history.

Today, I will be sharing to you a 1-day itinerary that will cover the most famous historic sites in Cebu City. (I did it for myself. Solo. No jeepney or taxi rides. I just walked along the busy streets of the city.)

Here it is:
