How to Spend 2 Days in Valparaíso

How to Spend 2 Days in Valparaíso

The Chilean port city of Valparaíso is most famous for its topography; vintage funiculars rattle up and down hills covered in brightly-painted houses. From street art to wine tasting, here’s how to spend 48 hours in Valpo.

Day 1: Soak Up the Sights and Culture

**Morning:**Start your day with a walking or bus tour of the city’s main sights; tours typically cover Plaza Sotomayor, the Chilean Armada, and Valparaíso’s funiculars and hillside neighborhoods, and provide lesser-known information about each. 

**Afternoon:**Pay an afternoon visit to the La Sebastiana, the former home of Nobel Laureate Pablo Neruda. Due to its location atop Cerro Bellavista, the museum offers sweeping views of the city and harbor. Buy your admission ticket in advance to skip the line and explore at your own pace. 

**Night:**Experience Valparaiso’s nightlife on a bar-hopping tour that introduces you to typical Chilean tipples and the city’s burgeoning craft beer scene. Afterward, take advantage of your proximity to the ocean by enjoying a seafood dinner; top restaurants include El Perall and Spice Cocina del Mar in Cerro Alegre.

Day 2: Vino and Viña del Mar

**Morning:**Spend your second day on an excursion to the wineries of Casablanca Valley. Most tours visit up to three vineyards for tours and tastings. You’ll get insights into the wine-making process, sample wines, and not have to worry about driving afterward.

**Afternoon:**Spend your afternoon in Viña del Mar, Valparaíso’s breezy neighbor. Tours provide an easy way to explore the must-see sights, which include the Flower Clock (Reloj de Flores) and the Fonck Museum, whose garden is home to an original Moai statue from Easter Island. 

**Night:**Conclude your visit to Valparaíso by gazing at the star-studded night sky in La Campana Ocoa National Park. Tours typically take you directly to the park to view the stars and planets through powerful telescopes. Afterward, return to Cerro Alegre for a bite to eat at the retro Cafe Vinilo.
