DAY 2
Santiago | Taste the Renowned Fruit of Chile’s Vines

This morning, embark on a city tour that offers a complete look at Santiago’s most important areas, along with beautiful panoramic views. Drive to the Mercado Central to view this colorful local marketplace before taking a short walk to Plaza de Armas, the city’s most famous square. Gaze at the beautiful surrounding buildings, including the impressive Metropolitan Cathedral. Nearby, enjoy a tour of the Museum of Pre-Columbian Art. Next, depart the city for a visit to the local wine district, viewing Palacio de La Moneda, seat of the president of the Republic of Chile, along the way. Chilean wines have come to prominence in recent years, owing to their exceptional character. This results from several factors, including the ideal combination of sunny days, cool nights and excellent soil in Chile’s long Central Valley. Visit an acclaimed family-owned winery for a private sampling, and to learn about Chilean cuisine during a Chef’s Table experience. After lunch, return to your luxurious hotel where your evening is at leisure.

Afterward, simply relax or opt for an excursion available from your hotel. Choose an adventure tailored to your interests, such as trekking in the Cordilleras or hiking in a nearby natural park.
