ADIP: Santiago, Chile

A Day in Pictures
Santiago, Chile


From the minute we arrived in Santiago, I wished we had more time to spend in Chile.

Santiago is a world-class city, with nice neighborhoods, good restaurants (with more variety than you are likely to find in Argentina), and beautiful public parks.  This, based on the 48 hours we spent there.

It’s a cultured city with a thriving public arts scene. We noticed lots of small theaters, buskers, sculpture gardens and beautifully landscaped parks.



We rode the teleferico to the top of the Cerro San Cristóbal in the Parque Metropolitano for an amazing view of the city and the surrounding Andes.


And soaked in spring’s arrival with a promise to ourselves to return to Chile one day – to do it right.



All our pictures from Santiago are posted here.

I really liked Santiago but found the air pollution overwhelming. How is it now? (I was there 10 years ago.) I took home lots of wine!

Hi there,
