You'll find plenty of places to visit near Santiago: La Sebastiana (in Valparaiso) and Concha y Toro (in Pirque). And it doesn't end there: take in the awesome beauty at San Cristóbal Hill, see the interesting displays at Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos, take an in-depth tour of Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino, and don't miss a visit to Cerro Santa Lucia.

For other places to visit, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Santiago day trip planner.
