Tour / Activity Description

Itinerary

Your tour starts with pickup from most hotels in the Downtown, Providencia, or Las Condes areas of Santiago.  Head through the main avenue of the city, getting to know its history and its surroundings.  You'll go down to the cobblestone neighborhood of Lastarría, a characteristic sector known for its green areas and beautiful houses of the 19th century, now restored and mostly used as cafes, restaurants, bookstores and museums.  Then you'll go to Cerro Santa Lucia where you'll have time to walk and take pictures, while your guide tells you some of the most important episodes in the history of Santiago, such as the Mapuche vs. Spanish confrontation.  From its terraces, you'll have a panoramic view of Santiago and admire relics and constructions from the colonial era, such as Castillo Hidalgo.

Moving on to the next stop, you'll see emblematic places of the city such as the Plaza de Armas, the Santiago Cathedral and its impressive architecture, in addition to the former national congress.  You'll arrive at the imposing government house called "La Moneda" and next to it the "Plaza de la Constitucion."  You'll visit its surroundings and learn its important and interesting history.  Back in the vehicle, the tour will continue with a step through the Central Market, one of the most characteristic gastronomic points of Santiago, and then continue to the upper sector of the capital.  On the way you'll stop at a lapis lazuli store to admire and/or buy beautiful jewelry and unique crafts.

The capital of Chile is a vibrant city full of character, with a thriving artistic culture, modern restaurants and lively nightlife.  Surrounded by mountains - the mighty Andes to the east and the smaller coastal range to the west - on a clear day, Santiago boasts one of the most incredible urban scenes in the world.  Old-world colonial mansions and eclectic neighborhoods seamlessly integrate the skyscrapers of "Sanhattan" into a captivating fusion of tradition and modernity.  With world-class skiing, wine routes, biking and trekking right at your doorstep, Santiago is a city full of stimulating possibilities.
