Depart Santiago this morning to enjoy a delightful visit to two cities located on the Pacific coast, just 1 hour 30 by car from Santiago. Drive through the beautiful Casablanca Valley, known for its fine vineyards and make a short stop at a winery. Upon arrival to the coast, first visit Viña del Mar, also known as the Garden City thanks to its beautiful beaches, lovely parks and flower gardens. Next stop is the picturesque port city of Valparaiso, founded in the 16th-century. The port was declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site in 2003 and offers a unique and fascinating architectural adventure. Built on several steep hills above the port, the colourful homes and buildings on the hillsides can be reached by wandering its quaint streets or take the famous historic funiculars that date back to the late 19th and early 20thcenturies. Colourful homes dot the hills forming an irresistible landscape for photo enthusiasts. A visit to 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), is also included.
Please note museums are shut on Mondays.
