  • Valparaiso is much more the hills Alegre, SAUCEDO, etc. who have Harbor view. Perhaps because people always are influenced by the spectacular fireworks being launched here to welcome the new year. But Playa Ancha has its great Avenida Playa Ancha and Avenida Britain, from where you can start entertaining excursions to a different Valparaiso, South-facing and where you can observe ships approaching the port, the headlights that still help navigation, Punta Curaumilla, etc. The Navy of Chile here has offices with interesting museums to visit and they teach the difficulties of navigation in this part of the Pacific Ocean, go to the national hydrographic service SHOA or see the Museum of lighthouses in the distribution DIRECTEMAR. You will learn as Chile defends itself from earthquakes and tsunamis and the precautions to be taken to sail on the Pacific Ocean. Also this beautiful Naval school, with a spectacular view.

  • Valparaiso is a city steeped in history. From Beach broadband has an excellent view of the entire city, but is relationship is one of the most ancient and little cared.

  • Best rent a car to explore; in the alternative available to bus tours (lines of 500-er society): steep and winding streets, constantly surprising views of the harbour. Many old buildings (which however urgently require a restoration).

Where to stay in Valparaiso

Since its inscription on the World Heritage List in 2002, Valparaiso tourism has experienced a meteoric rise. The city now offers a wide range of accommodations, especially budget hostels and mid-range hotels and inns. Cerro Alegre, a hill just to the west of the city center, offers perhaps the largest range of options and looks out over the bustling port. Stay in the friendly neighborhood of Cerro Concepcion to enjoy the best of Valparaiso's cafe culture.
