Santiago tourism thrives largely thanks to the city's big selection of cultural and entertainment options, including museums, theaters, restaurants, bars, and giant malls.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Casa de Isla Negra and Vina Casas del Bosque. Do some cultural sightseeing at La Chascona and Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino. Go for a jaunt from Santiago to Pirque to see Concha y Toro about 38 minutes away. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at San Cristóbal Hill, examine the collection at Centro Cultural Palacio de la Moneda y Plaza de la Ciudadania, and make a trip to Santa Lucia Hill.
