ITINERARY

Valparaiso, the 'Jewel of the Pacific,' as the city is known, is considered among the most interesting cities in South America, thanks to its picturesque multi-coloured houses and narrow streets, which have been declared UNESCO World Heritage in 2002.

The first stop is Cerro Florida, to admire La Sebastiana, House-Museum of Pablo Neruda (Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971 - admission not included). Continue along a scenic road through the hills, from where you can get nice views of the city and the ocean. Then climb up to Cerro Concepción and walk through famous Paseo Atkinson and Gervasoni, while our guide tells you about the history of foreign immigrants who came to Valparaiso during its golden age (before the opening of the Panama Channel, where it still was the main port in South America).

Then descend to Muelle Prat and see Plaza Sotomayor, one of Valparaiso´s main squares, which hosts some of the most traditional landmarks of the city, including the Old Aduana - nowadays part of the Naval Zone of the Chilean Army -, the monument to Arturo Prat, considered a national hero for the Pacific War and other French style buildings dating back to the seventeenth century.
