Declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2003 for its architectural and cultural significance, the city is also one of Chile's most fascinating. You will start in the downtown sector, learning about the history of "Valpo" and its importance in South American trade and commerce. Century-old hillside "ascensores" (elevators) will transport you up into the city's steep hills, where a labyrinthine maze of streets reveals brightly colored buildings, bohemian cafes and elegant restaurants, and spectacular views of the harbor below. Your tour will lead you on foot through two of the most famous and eclectic neighborhoods, Cerro Concepción and Cerro Alegre. In addition, you will visit one of Pablo Neruda's three homes-turned-museums, La Sebastiana. Afterwards, we will make our way to a restaurant nestled in the hills of city where you will enjoy local cuisine inspired by the fresh seafood, seasonal produce and fine wines available in Coastal Chile.
Pick up from an agreed location; tour of Valparaiso (on van, on foot and using public transportation); lunch at local restaurant; visit Pablo Neruda's house museum or alternatively visit neighbouring city Vina del Mar.
