Do a bit of shopping and browsing at Barrio Italia, packed with antique stores and street stands. Spend some time wandering the neighborhood's wide avenues, lined with brick buildings and leafy trees. You'll find an array of independent businesses and trendy boutiques along the way, including a number hawking refurbished and antique furniture. Keep your eyes peeled for cafes, coffee shops, and even ice cream spots where you can grab a bite to eat or a drink; many of these eateries feature open-air patios, courtyards, and street seating as well. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Barrio Italia and many more Santiago attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Santiago travel itinerary maker.

  • Buen paseo
  • Ruca Bar recommended
  • A really cute neighborhood with nice restaurants and antique stores. A nice place to take a stroll and go window shopping.
  • A lot of cool and hip restaurants, basically you can eat whatever you want because of the variety of places.
  • Barrio Italia has a special vibe, a calm aura with colourful old houses. If you walk down Avenida Italia, you'll have plenty of galeries/patios where to enjoy a coffee while reading your favourite book. For the shopping lovers, you'll find there many designers shops (clothes, antiques, art), gourmet boutiques and other surprises... Since I discovered it I keep going back as the barrio is vivid and consistently adding to its attraction. If you're looking for something authentic and different in Santiago for 1 day, go there and try the lasagna at Da Noi, then walk up avenida Italia and enjoy the vibe and all the boutiques. You can access it by metro, from Santa Isabel station (then it's a 10 min walk to avenida Italia)
