hotel and transportation before cruise

by rivaridge

The Ncl cruise begins on March 14, 2010. If we arrive one day before, any hotel recommendations? hotels close to the cruise port or hotels in Santiago?
Thank you for your time.

Travel Tips for Valparaíso

Wonderful city

by tini58de

Founded in 1536, Valparaiso is Chile's oldest and largest port city (pop. 279,000). We went there on a day trip from Santiago and had enough time to see the main sites in the interesting old section of town, including colonial buildings, the Church of La Matriz, Victoria Square and the Naval and Maritime museum. The old-seaport atmosphere of Valparaiso is best appreciated by spending a few hours wandering the steep and winding cobblestone alleyways through the town's colorful working-class neighborhoods.

Casa Museo Gabriela Mistral

by Bjorgvin

Casa Museo Gabriela Mistral.
Gabriela Mistral was the pseudonym of Lucila Godoy Alcayaga (1889-1957), the first Latin American woman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature (1945). Mistral grew up in a village in northern Chile becoming a schoolteacher at 15, and later a college professor. Besides being a poet and a teacher, she was for a while cultural minister, and diplomat in Spain, Portugal, Italy and France. - The museum house is located at Higueras Street 118, Cerro Alegre.

Big boulevards

by MEdelmann

This town could be not more different. Lonely street at one side, and big "avenidas" (boulevards) at the other side. They looked like a mix of South East and South West Europe, the spanish orgin of many people could be not overseen.

This is also one of the pictures I took out from the bus and when I pressed the exposure button, this green nice beetle came in front of my camera.

They have become rarely in Europe!

Valparaiso - Viña del Mar

by elpariente

Valparaiso y Viña del Mar son dos ciudades completamente diferentes que están unidas por una linea de metro que va casi todo el tiempo por la superficie y en 10 minutos , pasas del caos , desorden y belleza de una ciudad como Valparaiso al orden , limpieza y ( para mi ) impersonalidad de Viña del Mar
El viaje en Metro es rápido y muy cómodo
Valparaiso and Vina del Mar are two different cities that are linked with a Metro line that goes practically all-the time in the surface and in 10 minutes you pass chaos ,disorder and beauty of a town like Valparaiso , to the order , cleaning and ( for me ) luck of personality of Viña del Mar
The Metro travel is quick and very comfortable

The Legendary Valpo

by EagleEye

To fully live Valparaiso I suggest you have a quick look at its past...

I suggest you begin with "Cine Forum" located in the lovely restaurant "Valparaiso mi Amor" (Papudo 612 - Cerro Concepcion - Fono 749992). Nelson Cabrera, the owner, will warmly welcome you and play the short 16mm movie "Valparaiso" for you. Shot in 1962, this film of Joris Ivens (Dutch) and Chris Marker (French) shows the city of Valparaiso through the visitor's new eyes, using allegoria of air, sea, fire and blood.

If you really fall in love with the city and want to have a greater taste of its past, this is what I would suggest : El Mercurio, the first daily newspaper in South America, edited series of Valpo pictures taken at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. Some copies are still available in its warehouse, located at the crossroads of Yungay and Francia. The building has no sign, ask for it.
