Travel Itinerary

Day 1

Santiago

Encounter Santiago, Chile’s capital, nestled in the central valley, right below the imposing Andes. This city mixes the “Mapuche” legacy, the natives that inhabited this land during the Pre-Columbian era, our Spanish colonial past and the modernity of any thriving city of the world. Walk its streets, visit its museums, engage with its architecture and become a part of it. Historical and contemporary features combined in the heart of Chile.

From your hotel in Santiago, the city downtown awaits you. Proceed through the main avenue of the city, Alameda del Libertador General Bernardo O’Higgins, passing by the San Francisco Church, the oldest monument of the country erected in 1568 housing a convent, miraculously withstanding several earthquakes.

Start off by visiting the Santa Lucía Hill, where the Spanish conquistador Pedro de Valdivia founded the city on February 12, 1541. After a quick visit to its top, descend to visit the Lastarria Neighborhood, located right below the hill. This recently renovated neighborhood houses little cute cafés, exquisite restaurants and a couple of museums worth visiting (time permitting).

From here, you will be taken to the La Moneda Palace, nowadays the neoclassical style government palace, but originally constructed to house the Mint of the Spanish Crown during the 18th century.

A few blocks away, walk along Paseo Ahumada until reaching Plaza de Armas (The Main Square). When Pedro de Valdivia founded Santiago in 1541, he laid out this square as the heart of the newly-formed city. This bustling spot houses the oldest buildings of the capital: the Cathedral Church of Santiago, rebuilt in 1748 on the very site where all four previous churches were destroyed by fires and earthquakes, the Central Post Office and the National Historical Museum, the former “Real Audiencia” or Spanish Royal Court.

A little further, cross the Mapocho River and head straight towards the Bellavista Neighborhood, a lively place, core of the night and artistic life, where pubs, cultural centers and international gastronomy can be found.

Return to your hotel in Santiago.

Day 2

Santiago

Following breakfast at the hotel restaurant, depart from your hotel in Santiago to head to the district of Puente Alto, in the Maipo Valley, an hour away from Santiago’s downtown.

Amidst the countryside, find the Almaviva Winery; in 1997, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, Chairman of the Advisory Board of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, and Eduardo Guilisasti Tagle, Chairman of Viña Concha y Toro, sealed a partnership agreement with a view to create an exceptional Franco-Chilean wine called Almaviva. While Chile offers its soil, climate and vineyards, France contributes with its winemaking savoir-faire and traditions. The result is exceptionally elegant and complex.

Visit the winery and wine cellar, enjoying its natural setting. Then, some wine tasting.

Next, we will visit the Santa Rita Winery, founded in 1880 by Domingo Fernandez Concha. At the time, they had brought the latest French technology for its construction. French and American oak were used in its wine cellar, where the wines take a complex body with a taste of wood and smooth, delicate smell. The Patronal House stands in a park of 40 hectares, where centenary trees captivate the attention of the visitors (does not include visit to private Park). Tour the wine cellar and have lunch at “Doña Paula” restaurant, both declared a National Monument. The vineyards restaurant was named after Paula Jaraquemada, a woman who sheltered General O´Higgins and 120 of his men during the independence time. One of the Winery’s most renowned wines honours this episode in Chile´s history. Finally, visit the Museo Andino with its wide collection of 1800´s Pre-Columbian pieces of art.

After tour and wine tasting, return to your hotel.

Dinner on your own.

Day 3

Santiago

After breakfast at the hotel, begin your one hour and forty-five minute journey on Route 68 from your hotel in Santiago heading towards the coast to the beautiful city of Viña del Mar, also known as the Garden City, for a visit of its main streets and avenues, museums, and its large homes and palaces. Later head along the coast towards Reñaca, one of Chile’s most famous beach towns to enjoy a bit of sunshine and nature! Head around the bay to Valparaíso, and discover this busy port city with its charming hills. Pass by Chile’s parliament building as well as other examples of the historical architecture that makes Valparaíso a World Heritage Site since 2003.

Once in Valparaíso, start off with a visit to La Sebastiana, one of Pablo Neruda´s three homes in Chile, now a Museum. Your next stop is a must; the “Artillería” lift will take you to the 21 de Mayo lookout point. There is no place in Valparaiso with this view; watch the port activity, the rolling hills full of color and furthermore, see how the city has developed over recent years. Continue around the “cerros” or hills of the city to the San Luis square. Come across Cerro Concepción, and discover it on foot with its Anglican and Lutheran churches, and the Paseo Atkinson alleyway with its famous Brighton Restaurant. Walk over to Paseo Gervasoni where the famous Café Turri and the house of the cartoonist Lukas are located. Cross over to Cerro Alegre where the Paseo Yugoslavo and Baburitza Palace, once home to a Croatian immigrant and now the recently renovated Fine Arts museum of Valparaiso, are situated. From here descend on the “El Peral” lift to encounter the Plaza Sotomayor. This is where the Monument to the Fallen Heroes of Iquique is emplaced.

After a day of intense exploring, return to your hotel in Santiago.
