Your Santiago Chile Attractions Tour starts as you meet your guide at your hotel. Then, you will head to the city center to the main square of Santiago: the Plaza de Armas. There, admire the Cathedral, Historic Post Office, City Hall, and Monument to the Indigenous People of Chile. Then, stop by the National Museum of Natural History. After that, you will head to the Old Congress Building and Supreme Court. You can also visit the Chilean Museum of Pre-Columbian Art. Next, you’ll continue to Palacio La Moneda (where Chile’s president lives), University of Chile, Santiago Stock Exchange, and the Municipal Theater.
After admiring and learning about all of the fascinating buildings mentioned above, you will go to the top of Santa Lucia Hill. This park is an oasis in the bustle of the city. Pedro de Valdivia founded the city there in 1541. When you descend from the hill, you will have the chance to taste traditional Chilean food and browse a handicraft market for souvenirs. Then, you’ll visit the Museum of Fine Arts and walk through the Forest Park to the quirky neighborhood of Bellavista. To finish up your fun-filled tour, you’ll take a funicular (open-air elevator lift) up San Cristobal Hill to see terrific panoramic views of the city and mountains. Finally, you’ll take a gondola (“teleférico”) down the hill and go back to your hotel.
