WHAT YOU VISIT
- Santiago, Chile
Santiago, Chile's capital and largest city, is a vibrant metropolis. Your sightseeing tour takes you into the heart of the historic district past Constitution Square and Club Hipico, Chile's oldest racetrack. Admire popular O'Higgins Park, the second-largest public park in Chile, and the Palacio de La Moneda, a grand reminder of Santiago's colonial heritage. Built between 1784 and 1799, it's one of Chile's finest examples of Neo-Classical architecture and was the largest building erected in any of Spain's colonies during the 18th century.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
Stop at one of the lookout points of San Cristobal Hill and take in spectacular vistas of the sprawling city, rolling countryside, and majestic snow-capped Andes Mountains.

LUNCH
Enjoy a taste of Chile with a delicious lunch at a local restaurant.

SHOPPING
World-famous for its 180 handicraft shops, the artisan village of Los Dominicos displays and sells quality handicrafts at reasonable prices.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
Considered the heart and soul of Santiago, the Plaza de Armas is still at the center of the city's street life. Once the site of bullfights, this main square is home to the towering and impressive Metropolitan Cathedral. Built between 1748 and 1800, the Neoclassical and Baroque Cathedral sits on the site of five previous churches, all destroyed by earthquakes.
