Visit the bohemian town of Valparaiso on a 10-hour tour from Santiago and explore its UNESCO Wolrd Heritage sites on the colorful streets, such as La Matriz Church and Santo Domingo Square. Go to the Pablo Neruda Museum, and more.
What to Expect
Take in the faded grandeur of the unique harbor town of Valparaiso, nestled between the sea and forested coastal mountain range. Meaning “The Valley of Paradise,” the brightly-painted colonial town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003.
The carefully crafted private tour takes in all the hidden nooks, backstreets, and peculiarities of the Historic Quarter.
Upon arrival, take the funicular up into the hills for a coffee in one of the many cozy restaurants. Explore the little backstreets of street art, and stroll through the bohemian labyrinth of streets filled with brighly-painted houses. Nose though the many artisan jewelery shops and galleries. From up in the hills you will have spectacular vistas of the avant-garde town.
After an exquisite lunch (at your own expense), there is the option for a boat trip of the bay to see the enormous sea lions resting on buoys and shipwrecks, time permitting. End with a visit to Pablo Neruda's house, La Sebastiana, offering a glimpse into the artist’s life, as well as heart-stopping views of the harbor.
