Santiago

— 3 nights

City of the Island Hills

Santiago tourism thrives largely thanks to the city's big selection of cultural and entertainment options, including museums, theaters, restaurants, bars, and giant malls.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Casa de Isla Negra and Biblioteca Nacional (National Library). Get outdoors at San Cristóbal Hill and Quebrada de Cordoba. There's still lots to do: stroll around Cerro Santa Lucia, admire the striking features of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana), explore the world behind art at Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Central Market (Mercado Central).

Start your trip to Santiago by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.
