  • Just walk. The streets are beautiful and the neighborhood remember Montmartre in Paris. Many street artists showing their work. Handicrafts, art and music. Restaurants, bistros and charmosíssimos.

  • We went through several neighborhoods of Santiago and walked much. Italy District is that it has been a place of low and already very old houses that was remodeling and recycling. In those old houses there are now cafes, restaurant, hostels, shops. Wave hippie and busy weekends. We went on a Monday and there were few people and few places open. We were surprised the night and we found a lovely place with terrace on the sidewalk. A good tapas bar. Nothing expensive.

  • Located in the Centre of Santiago, Barrio Italy is ideal for walks along different shops, that is full! and food and drink. It is type Palermo Soho Palermo Hollywood Buenos Aires. Worth knowing and return.

  • Buen paseo
  • A really cute neighborhood with nice restaurants and antique stores. A nice place to take a stroll and go window shopping.
  • Ruca Bar recommended
  • 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)
