Santiago tourism thrives largely thanks to the city's big selection of cultural and entertainment options, including museums, theaters, restaurants, bars, and giant malls.
Santiago is known for parks, museums, shopping, historic sites, and wineries. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: don't miss a visit to Cerro Santa Lucia, get a sense of history and politics at La Moneda, stroll through Cerro San Cristobal, and take an in-depth tour of Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Santiago trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Johannesburg, South Africa to Santiago is an approximately 20-hour flight. The time zone changes from South Africa Standard Time to Chile Time, which is usually a -6 hour difference. Traveling from Johannesburg in March, expect a bit cooler with lows of 13°C in Santiago. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Mon) early enough to drive to Vina del Mar.

A more organized counterpart to its chaotic neighbor Valparaiso, Vina del Mar lives up to its reputation as the "Garden City." Brimming with public parks and flower displays, Chile's fourth-largest city embraces nature, with palm-lined avenues enhancing the "green" ambience.
On the 19th (Mon), don't miss a visit to Cerro Concepcion, Valparaiso, then get the lay of the land with Walking tours, then appreciate the extensive heritage of Paseo Yugoslavo, and finally see the interesting displays at Corporacion Museo de Arqueologia e Historia Francisco Fonck. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 20th (Tue): enjoy the sand and surf at Reñaca, make a trip to Flower Clock (Reloj de Flores), and then contemplate the long history of La Sebastiana (Pablo Neruda's House).
