Valparaíso, Chile, is a city along the country’s coastline. It’s home to many charming restaurants, shops and cultural and natural attractions. Here are some can’t-miss spots for your next visit to this World Heritage City.


Reina Victoria funicular

Take the Reina Victoria funicular up to explore the hilly streets of Valparaíso. This funicular opened in 1903. Avoid looking down if you’re afraid of heights.


Casa Cervecera Altamira

Located at the foot of the Reina Victoria funicular is the first brewpub in Valparaíso, Casa Cervecera Altamira. The brewery and restaurant serves local beers, pub grub and hosts live music.


La Sebastiana

La Sebastiana is one of the houses of poet Pablo Neruda. Currently a museum open to the public, the collection includes artwork and quirky artifacts from when Neruda lived there. Take the self-guided audio tour, available in five different languages, to learn more about the house and poet.


Tres Peces

Experience traditional Chilean seafood at Tres Peces. The restaurant prides itself on offering diners only sustainable seafood. The popular restaurant does not take reservations, so be prepared to wait if you visit during peak hours.



The city of Valparaíso is made up of dozens of hills. The Concepción, Alegre and Bellavista hills are great spots for wandering the streets, viewing street art and popping in and out of the many charming boutiques and cafés.

Climbing Mount Etna

As an active volcano your first thought might not be to climb Mount Etna, but it is a popular hiking destination for many visitors to the island of Sicily.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
