Santiago tourism thrives largely thanks to the city's big selection of cultural and entertainment options, including museums, theaters, restaurants, bars, and giant malls.
Get some historical perspective at Centro Cultural Palacio de la Moneda y Plaza de la Ciudadania and Iglesia de Santa Filomena. La Chascona and Chilean National Museum of Fine Arts will appeal to museum buffs. Step out of Santiago with an excursion to Concha y Toro in Pirque--about 48 minutes away. There's much more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at San Cristóbal Hill, admire the landmark architecture of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana), stroll around Cerro Santa Lucia, and examine the collection at Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos.

To find reviews, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Santiago vacation planner.

Traveling by car from Valparaiso to Santiago takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
