Full Day Valparaiso - Viña del Mar
Program idea Chile
For this excursion we will start driving towards the Pacific Ocean, passing the agricultural valleys of Curacaví and Casablanca to finally reach Valparaíso. This port’s picturesque layout reminds us why it was the most important maritime destination in the Pacific coast
for so many years. We will visit the downtown area with its new government house, the Plaza Sotomayor, the Plaza Victoria, the cathedral and the harbor area. Afterwards, we will discover the colorful hill neighborhoods. Here, high above the city, there is a fantastic agglomeration of brightly painted houses and a fantastic view over the city. The upper and lower parts of the city are connected with 16 funicular railways constructed many years ago. Later, we will continue travelling north along the coastline to get to Viña del Mar, the most famous and visited beach resort of the region. Its many parks of huge trees and palms gave Viña del Mar the well-deserved name of ‘Garden City’. We will visit the beautiful Quinta Vergara and its amphitheater, the beaches and the Casino.
