Located in Chile's Central Valley, Chile's capital city is full of energy, culture, history and special neighbourhoods filled with character.
Downtown Santiago is a mix of architectural styles and the city is best explored on foot. Neighbourhoods such as Lastarria, Italia, Yungay or the bohemian Bellavista offering great restaurants, designer shops and cool bars and cafés.
Santiago is dissected by the fast flowing Mapocho River and offers views of the Andes from most parts of the city. The coast and the mountains are relatively easily reached and there are vineyards on the outskirts of the city.
