Valparaiso, Viña del Mar, Santiago and National Historical Museum
The tour takes you for a drive through Valparaiso passing the National Congress building and the commercial district, en route to the neighboring city of Vina del Mar where youll see the famous Flower Clock. Traveling along the coastal road, youll pass the Casino built in the 1930s and through residential neighborhoods with their varied architecture and well groomed parks and gardens. On the way to Santiago, youll travel through the picturesque wine-producing Casablanca Valley. Santiago is a city of contrasts. With remnants of its Colonial past to the ultra-modern high-rise buildings of its financial center, ChileÂ´s capital city always has many exciting areas to explore. While in Santiago, stops will be made at the Santiago Cathedral and the Historical Museum. Travel south through the downtown area, passing the Club Hipico, a beautiful horseracing track in the older residential area of the city. Youll proceed alongside the Parque OÂ´Higgins and past the Cousino Palace that was built between 1870 and 1878 for the wealthy Cousino family. From here continue along the famous Alameda, SantiagoÂ´s colorful main avenue, crossing the Mapocho River and the bohemian Bella Vista district on the way to the San Cristobal Hill. When you reach the summit you will have the finest panoramic views of Santiago and the Andes Mountains. Tour the modern residential areas of the city with its daring architecture. A brief stop will be made at an elegant Lapis Lazuli Shop (blue semi-precious Chilean stone).
