Barrio Italia

The Barrio Italia neighbourhood is a bohemian haven for creatives, art lovers and culture vultures.  A lovely little eco boutique hotel is Hotel Maison Italia 1029 with private terraces and an on-site restaurant, while Edelweiss Hostel Boutique is a bed and breakfast offering a tranquil stay that’s nevertheless minutes from all the action.

Barrio Bellavista

Cool and quirky Barrio Bellavista offers you bars, clubs, parks, shopping opportunities and street art galore. Consider settling down at The Aubrey, which boasts four-star luxury and a piano bar. A little more low-key is Hotel Terrazas Bellavista – a small and peaceful oasis in the city with a garden, rooftop bar and pool. It’s also around the corner from the tube station.

Barrio Brasil

Get away from the crowds for a more chilled stay in Santiago and head to the neighbourhood of Barrio Brasil. We recommend Matildas Hotel Boutique for its tranquil garden-view rooms and elegant interiors. Travelling on a budget? Landay Hostel has comfy dorms, a shared dining room and lounge, and free Wi-Fi.

First and foremost, pack comfortable walking shoes so you can spend days exploring the charming streets of Barrio Bellavista and the historic city center. Be sure to throw in a light jacket for the cooler evenings and a swimsuit for a dip in the hot springs. Don’t forget your appetite to devour delectable Chilean cuisine, from traditional empanadas to sensational seafood.

It depends on what brings you to Santiago in the first place! If you’re a foodie, make a beeline for the bustling Mercado Central, a food-lover's paradise filled with fresh seafood and traditional Chilean dishes. If you’ve succumbed to the food coma, walk it off in the vibrant neighborhood of Bellavista, where you can wander through colourful streets adorned with street art and enjoy the nightlife. For the perfect snap for the ‘Gram, take a ride on the funicular to the top of Cerro San Cristóbal for breathtaking views of the city and the majestic Andes Mountains. Next up on the sight-seeing tour is the historic heart of Santiago in the Plaza de Armas, where you can admire the architecture of the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Palacio de la Moneda. For a unique experience, venture out of the city to the picturesque vineyards of Maipo or Casablanca Valley, where you can sip and sample while you soak up the scenic beauty.

Central Chile is a wonderful year-round destination, with plenty to see and do regardless of the season. If you’re keen for blissful warm days and balmy evenings dining alfresco, aim for spring and summer, which also happens to be the best time to visit wine country as there are grape harvests and wine festivals. Ski slopes around Santiago hit their peak season during winter. No matter when you visit, Santiago promises a delightful blend of cultural experiences, scenic beauty and warm hospitality.

Challenge the locals to a game of chess in the Plaza de Armas, take a walking tour, go museum hopping, roll out a rug in one of Santiago’s beautiful parks, drink Pisco, climb Santa Lucia Hill, drink more Pisco, go wine tasting, take a cooking class, marvel at street art – the options are endless!
