Travel Itinerary

Day 1

-/-/-

Santiago

- Meet and greet your guide at the airport and transfer to your Hotel.

HALF DAY TOUR OF SANTIAGO

- This entertaining tour consists in visiting the main attractions of Santiago, the country’s most important cultural, cosmopolitan and artistic hub.

- We start out with a visit to the highpoints of the city’s civic center, such as Cerro Santa Lucia (a centrally located historic urban park), the La Moneda Palace (presidential offices) and the traditional Plaza de Armas square, a meeting place for Santiago’s diverse and multicultural expressions.

- Buildings of historical value can be found in the neighborhood, such as the Metropolitan Cathedral, National Museum of History and Central Post Office. We later walk through the Parque Forestal, a park running parallel to the Mapocho river with a variety of tree species offering a refreshing break from the urban agitation of the city’s center, and continue on to Barrio Bellavista, Santiago’s bohemian neighborhood, with some of the best bars and restaurants in the city.

- Return to hotel.

- A visit to Cerro San Cristobal is included in this excursion.

Day 2

B/L/-

Santiago - Valparaiso & Viña del Mar - Santiago

- Morning departure to enjoy a delightful visit to two cities located on the Pacific coast that is just one hour and half by car from Santiago.

- Our drive will pass through the Casablanca wine region. Once we arrive to the coast, we’ll first visit Viña del Mar, also known as the “Garden City” because of its beautiful beaches, lovely parks and flower garden landscapes (such as the famous flower watch).

- It has become one of the central region’s most important tourism attractions. The peaceful seascape is an attractive complement for the city’s modern streets and infrastructure, turning it into an entertaining hub in constant movement.

- Our second destination is the picturesque city-port of Valparaiso, founded in the 16th century. You’ll marvel at the contrast between both cities, as the stylishness and beach culture of Viña is replaced here by a much more popular and artistic style.

- The port was declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site in 2003 and offers a unique and fascinating architectural adventure.

- We will also visit the Pablo Neruda Museum “La Sebastiana,” the former home of Pablo Neruda (one of Chile’s most renowned poets who was awarded a Nobel Prize in Literature,).
