Seat- in- Coach City Highlights Tour (3 hours)
Set out on an exploration of Santiago – Chile’s dynamic capital city – to see its iconic art and architecture, historic sites and lively districts. Picked up from your hotel, drive through the colonial quarters and modern districts of this vibrant town nestled under the peaks of the Andes Mountain Range. See the central Plaza de Armas and take in the fountains, façades and views of Cerro Santa Lucia. From there, admire the regal Palacio de la Moneda – this neoclassical edifice is the seat of the President of the Republic of Chile. At Cerro San Cristobal, gaze up at the towering, 22-metre (72-foot) tall statue of the Virgin Mary keeping vigil over the city, and then make your way into the central district of Providencia. Traverse the bustling streets lined with skyscrapers – Santiago is home to the Gran Torre, Latin America’s tallest building – and soak up the cosmopolitan vibe of this Latin metropolis. During some free time, you can choose to grab a seafood lunch at the music-filled Mercado Central, or shop and dine at one of Santiago’s modern shopping centres.
