WHAT YOU VISIT
- Valparaiso
Stretched out over 45 steep hills, Valparaiso boasts a laid-back attitude, winding streets and rich, colonial architecture worthy of its UNESCO World Heritage status. Its most memorable feature may be its crayon-colored neighborhoods that climb up hills so steep funiculars are used to traverse the dramatically graded landscape. The lower coastal section called "El Plan" is home to Plaza Sotomayor, dominated by the Naval Headquarters building and the impressive monument to the Heroes of Iquique. "Los Cerros," or The Hills boasts steep staircases, narrow alleyways, and winding roads dotted with fine mansions.

- Fonck Museum
Dedicated to Chile's native flora and fauna, and the indigenous peoples of Chile, the acclaimed museum is also home to one of the world's most important collections related to Easter Island, including the only Mori statue in mainland Chile.

- Viña del Mar
The seaside resort of Viña del Mar sits on a section of coast affectionately called the "Chilean Riviera." Here, you'll find ritzy hotels, world-class restaurants, palm-lined boulevards, lush parks and beaches. On a steep bluff stands Cerro Castillo, the summer palace of the Presidents of the Republic.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
Dating back to 1930, the 74,000-square-foot Viña del Mar Municipal Casino is one of the oldest gambling halls in South America.

LUNCH
Following your tour of Viña del Mar, you'll stop for lunch before returning to San Antonio.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
Nicknamed "little San Francisco" for its colorful, cliff-hugging homes stretched out over steep hills, Valparaiso boasts superb views over the city and the bay.
